Barry was an intelligent man with an insatiable thirst for knowledge, always seeking the next challenge. He was a talented sportsman with a lifelong love of cricket, field hockey and soccer, resulting in a great network of steadfast friends. He was a skilled home renovator, woodworker, stained glass artist and an early enthusiast of home computers.
Despite his best efforts, he humorously admitted to not finding much success with his guitar, yet his passion for music remained strong.
Beyond his accomplishments, Barry will be remembered for his warm heart, humour, kindness and his love for his family and friends.
The family will be forever grateful to everyone who provided support during Barry's last years. From medical staff, friends providing food and companionship and the compassionate care from his personal care workers.
All of you helped ease his final journey - thank you.
He will be missed but never forgotten.
