February 28, 1939 – July 30, 2021
On July 30 2021, Barry passed away peacefully after a short but powerful fight with cancer.
He loved building and creating, we thought that his work would go on forever.
He will be deeply missed by his loving partner Marlene Noble and her family, his daughter Elise, son Randy, step-son Brad and his many fantastic grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
You tried to come off grumpy
You always seemed so gruff,
But you were hiding someone tender
A man brimming with love.
Jack of all trades, master of none
You were often known to claim,
But the things you knew and taught and shared
Enriched us all the same.
Of all the jokes you shared with us
And the stories that you told,
None so charming as your singing
Deep and clear and bold.
You showed us how to love and care
How to always give as you could,
You shared what you had so freely
And we knew that you always would.
You loved us well and loved us deep
You were always on our side,
We’ll hold you always in our hearts
We’re crushed to say goodbye.
