I too like so many others here had the pleasure of meeting your Dad at Tumbleweeds many years ago. He was a kind and caring man and the World would certainly be a better place if there were more people like him in it.
I will fondly remember him and all the good times we shared with him back then and extend my deepest sympathy to your family for your loss. RIP and God Bless You Barry.

Cindy, Dean , Todd and Troy so sorry to hear that your dad passed away. I know you have lots of good memories. I recall him dancing me around the floor at a family wedding when I was a teenager. I felt like I was a great dancer (even though I stomped his toes a few times), but really he was great at leading... Great memory.
Barry was always very kind to me. Kindness is a wonderful legacy.
You are all in my prayers.
