Max Barry, son of Mayor Megan Barry and her husband Bruce, died from an overdose in Denver, Colorado, Saturday.

Mayor Barry issued a statement about the loss of their son saying, “Early this morning, we received news that no parents should ever have to hear.”

“Our son Max suffered from an overdose and passed away. We cannot begin to describe the pain and heartbreak that comes with losing our only child. Our son was a kind soul full of life and love for his family and friends.

“Our family would greatly appreciate your thoughts and prayers, and would respectfully ask for privacy as we mourn the loss of our child and begin to understand a world without his laughter and love in our lives.”

The 22-year old graduated from the University of Puget Sound in June. He attended Eakin Elementary, West End Middle School, and Martin Luther King Jr. Magnet School before attending and graduating from University School of Nashville.

Visitation will be held Monday at the Blair School of Music followed by a memorial service on Tuesday at the Belcourt Theatre. 

Messages of condolence can be sent to [email protected] or Office of Mayor Megan Barry, 1 Public Square, Nashville, TN 37201.

Contributions can be made to the Oasis Center or Nashville Humane Society in memory of Max Barry.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Mayor Barry and her husband Bruce.
