My wife, Kathy, and I first met Barry when he moved in across from us when we were on Division St. His side of the street was Dennisport and ours was West Harwich. His mailbox was located in front of our house. Our first conversation revealed many similarities. I am a musician (accordion) and he was a keyboardist and flutist who performed with many internationally known entertainers. I was principal of Paxton (MA) Center School. He took his dogs to be groomed in Paxton. One of my former students was a professional figure skater who mentored his beloved Erika. Using his knowledge of consumer protection laws, he helped us win a settlement on a claim with a large insurance company. We often tapped into his technology skills. We got to know his dogs, Taylor and Paige, and parrot, Rhumba as friends. We got to know Barry as the real "world's most interesting man"! After we moved to Harwich Center five years ago, we maintained regular contact with Barry. I ran errands, helped run the dogs to the vet or groomer, and drove Barry to some of his medical appointments in Boston when he was unable to drive himself. I was his "go to guy" for installing and removing his air conditioner at the change of seasons and keeping his prize generator unit in working order. We often texted each other during Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins games as we cheered them on together. Most especially, I was one of a handful that Barry turned to when he needed a listening ear when his medical issues were overwhelming him and he needed a boost. Most recently he relied on us to pray for him as he battled with poor health. His deep love for his daughter, Erika, and grandson, Will, was most obvious. He always wanted the best for them! Most especially, he had a kind and generous heart. His loss was unexpected and a shock. We deeply miss him. May he rest in peace.

I'm going to miss Barry's booming laugh and his eternal optimism.

I remember having a really nice talk with Barry during one of Barton's bar mitzvahs for his kids. The programming for video games and the class he took for that fascinated me. I remember seeing him at a carnival once and he gave me a stuffed animal out of kindness. I think it was a purple panda I had that bear for years...He didn't have to do that ..it was very nice of him... He just gave it to me...He had an interesting stereo light show I remember when I used to visit Boston when I was younger.....and I used to go and visit him and Richard when I was growing up . He was extremely bright and a strong grasp on technology and programming. I was always very impressed with that about him. Because I was always living in the New York area I didn't have a lot of my contact with family in the Boston area and spent most of my time with my parents. But this isn't about me but what I remember. He had a quality that everything felt like it was going to be okay when you were with him. He was a free spirit...Just put down your worries and forget about it. That's always how he made me feel. I think part of that quality became part of me. I'm glad that I got an opportunity to express my words and I wish I had lived in Boston and he could could have seen the things that I was interested in.. because, like Barry, I've always been interested in technology - being a licensed ham radio operator and first line medical staff x-ray technologist. Thank you for setting up this website to Barry's family so that all of us could say our memories.
