On December 22, 2010 Barry departed on his heavenly journey, surrounded by his family, at the age of 67. He valiantly fought multiple myeloma for 7 years.
From his humble beginning in Fort Vermillion, as a fur trader’s son, and working as a surveyor for the CN Railway, he graduated with a Masters Degree in Criminology, which lead to a successful career in Corrections, culminating in 12 years as a Judicial Justice of the Peace. Barry was also an active member of his parish, serving in a variety of volunteer positions including on parish and school councils.
Barry was predeceased by his father Harry, and brother Bruce. He will be greatly missed by his wife of 41 years, Pauline, his mother Diana, his brother Brian, his children Jay (Sharon), Lori (Steve), Chris (Loreena), Michael (Lorena), Danielle (Cody), his grandchildren Nicole, Christian, Liam, Stephanie, Dylan, and newest granddaughter Ryen born December 21, 2010.
The family would like to thank Dr. Weatherston, Dr. Winston, Rev. Paul Than Bui, and the many friends and family for their care, prayers and support.
A funeral mass was held at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, December 29, 2010.
