Heath then went on to Southern Maine Technical College where he graduated in 2002, at the top of his class, earning a degree in Building Construction.

From a young age, Heath always had a very strong work ethic, starting with mowing cemeteries with his dad and Grampy at the age of ten. His love of carpentry started during his teenage years while he worked at the Woodcraft Shop building custom cabinetry.
As a young man, he also liked to participate in tractor pulling often out pulling men twice his age. Other hobbies included family camping trips, three wheeling with friends, and tinkering on projects with his dad. After college, Heath started his professional career as a builder and ultimately became partners with David Ober to establish Ober and Barrett Builders. As a master carpenter, he took great pride in all of his work, as a true perfectionist he would not settle for anything less.
Heath met the love of his life, Kailey, in 2010 and they married in 2016. Their first child, Quinn, was born in 2017 followed by Callahan in 2020. Their third child, Harrison, is soon to born in March. Heath was a wonderful husband and father, he cared deeply for his family. This was obvious in the big smile that graced his face every time he talked about them. Heath also had a very special close bond with his parents and sister.
Heath had a way about him always making people feel loved. He was always concerned for the health and happiness of others before himself. He lived life to the fullest and had the best sense of humor. He loved all types of music, Hank Williams Jr. most of all. There was nothing he couldn’t do, he was well versed in carpentry, plumbing, electric, mechanic work, cooking, and figuring out the impossible.
