So Sorry to hear of the Loss of Your Beloved Barry. He was Mentor to me when I first came to the IS Mechanical shop@4BOF/Caster 1979 when I was just a kid out of high school. Excellent Craftsman/ Welder(One of the Best I’ve worked with)and an Even Better Person. Surely a Life Gone Too Soon. May the Lord Ease Your Pain as Time Goes by and Good Memories Fill Your Time
