Dear Lynne, Kim and Steve,

We are so sad to hear of Barry’s passing. He was such a nice man, he always had a smile on his face – he inspired me by being out in his yard and doing all the work he did all the time! And I will miss seeing him walking around the circle! Tim and I have fond memories of when all you kids were little – Kim babysitting our kids ALL the time; which one of ours called Steve “Steebe”?? (I think it was Patrick?) We love you guys and please know that Barry is now an Angel in Heaven watching over all of you!

Dear Lynne and Family, We’re saddened to learn of Barry’s passing. Haven’t had much occasion to chat with him recently, but the conversations with Barry in the past were always fun. He had a good sense of humor and interesting insights on life in general.We hope that good memories of Barry will sustain you now and in the years ahead.

God bless.

Dear Lynne, we were saddened to learn of Barry’s illness and passing. Such a wonderful neighbor, I always appreciated him clearing snow for us on the days Tony worked. Remembering when our dog ran from me and went into your garage. He was so kind about it and laughed. We are thinking of you and your family and are here if you need anything
