Barry cherished his family dearly. He was a hard worker and retired from General Motors of Canada, to spend more time with his family. He reminisced often with much pride about his time spent in the Navy. In his early years, he was an avid fisherman and enjoyed his fishing trips with family and friends. Barry loved to make people laugh and always enjoyed being the center of attention. He had a special love for all the family pets, and for animals in general. He loved Joy’s baking, in particular, cake!! The Toronto Blue Jays, racetrack, and the casino were some of his favourite pastimes. Barry loved the sound and musical talents of his very favourite artist, his wife Joy, followed by his second favourite artist, Nana Mouskouri. He was a very sentimental man and will be immensely missed by all who knew him.
