I wish to express my deepest sympathy to the Zochodne family. Although Barry and I worked together for a short time, we became very good friends. We texted or spoke on the phone almost every day. Barry was a very gentle and kind person. He treated everyone he encountered with fairness and respect. He did not judge anyone. He had a great sense of humour and could always make me laugh, even in the worst possible situations.
I was deeply saddened to hear of Barry’s death. His passing is a tremendous loss to family and friends who loved him. He had so much to give.
I will miss our daily conversations about dentistry and life and our shared love of music. I miss nagging him about basically everything and he in turn telling me how bossy I am. Barry, you will always have a very special place in my heart. Be at peace now my dear friend... Wendy

Barry will be sadly missed. I enjoyed working at his office doing hygiene and assisting. It's hard to think of him as being gone, as he's never far from our thoughts. My deep sympathies to the Zochodne family.

My deepest sympathies to the Zochodne family. I will miss our chats at work and our annual conventions in Toronto. He was a great boss and friend, always understanding and had a big heart. It is difficult to believe he is not with us any longer , but the memories will last a lifetime. Rest In Peace Barry.

Barry had a heart of gold.

He was one of the most generous souls I’ve known. Never had anything bad to say about anyone. He craved the outdoors and could find enjoyment in the simplest of things.

I’ll always remember Barry for his kindness and his natural instinct to accept people for who they are, something that he did effortlessly and in the purest way.

May he find peace, love, and true understanding wherever he may be

With deepest sympathy to the Zochodne family.
I am deeply saddened by Barry's passing. I knew Barry for almost two years, I worked with him at the dental practice. He became such a huge part of my life. Will miss teasing him about "his"girls at the office, his guitar lessons with me, his hugs, our chats when I was cleaning the office.
Rest in Peace Barry, sending you a hug on Angel's wings.
