BARRY JAMES WILCOCK With sorrow the family announce the passing of Barry James Wilcock on January 21, 2017. Barry was born in Winnipeg on June 15, 1946 attending high school at St. Joseph's College in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. Barry is survived by his father, Edward, his wife, Lynn, children, Craig (Tammy), Garnet (Julie), and Nancy (Chris), stepchildren Tammy (Steven), Shane, Tracy (Brad) and 12 grandchildren. He was predeceased by his mother, Gwendolien. As a young man he belonged to the Air Cadets in Dauphin, was a member of several reserve units, to include The Royal Canadian Artillery Reserve and The Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders. Following in his grandfather and father's footsteps, Barry had a long, enjoyable career with the CNR. His interests were diverse, often contributing as a willing volunteer. Barry was one of the founding fathers of The Fort Garry North Hockey Association, a frequent coach of his sons' hockey teams, an active member of the Prairie Dog Central Railway, and a model railroader. Never one to remain idle, Barry began working at the Winnipeg Airport in retirement, forging many friendships over the years. He always had great stories to tell. Barry truly enjoyed spending time with family and friends; assisting with the annual fireworks display at Spruce Sands Resort to great adventures with his wife Lynn travelling across the country in their fifth wheel trailer. Thank you to the Winnipeg Airport staff and first responders for their care and sensitivity. Donations may be directed to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Barry will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by all who knew him. A service will be held on Monday, January 30 at 2:00 p.m. at Green Acres Funeral Home, No. 1 Highway East at Navin Road.

Barry will truly be missed by all of us out at vehicle screening. He always had a joke to tell and a boisterous laugh to go with it. I'm sure he's up there smiling down on us. - Posted by: Beverly Larson (Work) on: Jan 28, 2017
