Sadly, on November 1, 2016 Barry passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family with great dignity through Assisted Dying At Home after a courageous struggle with Cancer.

Barry was predeceased by his son, David and his brother, Wayne.

Morna and Barry enjoyed a full and active cottage life after early retirement from Dow Chemical.

Barry loved playing Old Timers Hockey with the Old Crows in Sidney for many years.
