So sorry for your loss. I remember Barry as being a fun and funny guy. He always had a great smile and was a great friend to my brother George.
He will be missed
Mary Ann and Family,
Sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Barry was such a lovely guy. You are in my thoughts and prayers Mary Ann, Daniel and Jacqueline. Love cousin Lisa
Maureen and I were very saddened with the news of Barrie’s passing. Please accept our most sincere sympathies. I was quite fond of Barrie and have several terrific reunion memories to remember him by. Not the least of which was when Barrie and I played on a line together for the ice hockey game and Barrie looked over to me and said, “let’s show these young kids how the old timers can skate rings around them”…..well the rings part didn’t exactly happen but we had great fun trying. I look forward to another skate some day in Barrie’s honour. May God rest his soul.
Dear Mary Ann,
We are so sorry for your loss. My children and I extend our deepest sympathies to you, Daniel, Jacqueline and all of Barry’s family. It’s all so sudden. I’m sure you are still trying to process everything as you deal with your grief and heartache. Our hearts and prayers go out to you. You and your family are in our thoughts.
Love from Cousin Joe, Madeline, Bridget, Justin and Mary Frances.

Mary Ann I wanted to offer my condolences for your loss. Although I did not know Barry well , he was always very respectful and pleasant with me. I can tell you many in the business community and friends have reached out to me to mention what a great person he was and he will be sorely missed. He definitely left a lasting and positive memory.
