Odell Barry Death – Obituary, Former Bronco, Northglenn Mayor & Prominent Local Businessman Dies At Age 80

Odell Barry Death – Obituary – Odell Barry, the former Broncos player and Northglenn mayor who left an indelible impact on Denver, died Monday at the age of 80 after a battle with congestive heart disease.

Barry first made his name with the Broncos, but it was his post-football achievements that gilded his legacy. In 1980, he became the first Black elected mayor in a major city in Colorado. After his term was over Barry led a life rich in altruism, political activism, entrepreneurship and real estate.
