Dear Suzanne:
Although we have never met please accept this short note of sincere profound condolence in the loss of your Barry.
I had the distinct pleasure of having Barry as my ground school instructor on my initial B-727 second officer course some short 42 years ago. Barry was a wealth of knowledge and I always enjoyed his dry sense of understated humour.
May Barry’s last flight west had fair skies with following winds and thank you for sharing Barry with us.

Bonjour Suzanne,
J'ai appris le décès de ton époux Barry...
Alors je viens "tout bonnement " et en "toute amitié familiale" t'offir mes condoléances et l'assurance de mon humble communion de prières.
Je garde le souvenir de ton amoureux, ...pour les quelques fois qu'il m'a été donné de le rencontrer...., d'un bon gentil homme aimable, courtois et d'agréable présence.
Sans doute que de l'autre VERSANT DE LA VIE, le Seigneur Dieu qui l'accueille dans sa Lumière et sa Bonté, lui permettra de vous offrir une "nouvelle présence" à Toi, son épouse et à tous ceux et celles qui lui ont été proches et chers.
De tout coeur avec toi.

When I joined Air Canada in January 1975, after ground school course, I was given the B-727 airplane course with Barry Fletcher in Montreal.
He was so competent and well spoken that I could understand everything he said.
Thank you Barry for making our lives easy during intensive learning process.
Rest In Peace.
My sincere condolences to the family for your loss.

Please send my regards and regrets to Suzanne.. I will never forget how he was such a gentlemen’s gentleman with her. They would stroll the streets in Maintz hand in hand like they were dating.. Lovely to see.. even after his illness, when I visited him he was most pleasant and not sorry for himself...

I was sorry to hear of Barry's death Suzanne and only hope that the good memories of your life together will help you through this loss.
I worked with Barry extensively on the B-727 introduction into the Air Canada fleet. His dedication and enthusiasm made that transition an enjoyable experience for the multitudes he instructed.
Our prayers are with you.
