Barry’s life was devoted to his family. He was happiest when spending time with the love of his life, Therese, surrounded by those he loved. All he needed was a good beach and family to share it with. Those adventures are cherished memories for all that were lucky enough to be part of the experience.
His life has ended too soon, but each day he had was lived to the limit, filled with love, and treasured experiences.
