CARBONDALE - Dr. Steven P. Barrett, 55, son of James and Ann Storme-Barrett, passed away surrounded by family on Saturday, May 11th, 2024. 


Dr. Barrett graduated Palmer Chiropractic College in 1995. He owned his business, Simple Chiropractic, alongside his wife, Rhonda Barrett, in Carbondale for 28 years. He was incredibly passionate about serving his patients. His goal was to improve their health, relieve their pain, and during those years his practice reached thousands of people.
