For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me (Mt 25:35-36)
Barry was this man in my life.

Barry will be sorely missed by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him. We knew him as a good golfer and a great Christian man.
May his family know how many lives he touched in so many ways.
