The Cervantes Family

Liz Schneider

Barry Cervantes has lived in the Central West End for a total of 42 years, in three different homes, all on the same street. He has two children: Hollyce, who will graduate in May from University of Missouri, and Connor, who is a freshman at Arizona State University.

LN: What is an ideal way to spend a day in the CWE?

Barry Cervantes: I love to go biking or walking in Forest Park, have lunch at Culpeppers, take in a movie at The Chase and get ice cream at Coffee Cartel.

LN: What do you love most about your neighborhood?

Barry: I like how eclectic the area is, between the diversity of people and restaurants. I like the historic homes and buildings, and how we are in close proximity to most things, but we are still tucked away.
