As a young man, Barry travelled to Thompson where he worked at Inco for a brief time, then, went to work for Safeway where he remained for 27 years. He met his wife Eva there, and was married in 1967.

Throughout all his years, Barry's greatest joy and comfort was his family. His children and grandchildren brought him endless joy. With family and friends, he enjoyed many sociable fun-loving events, generally enjoying life to its fullest.

My condolences to the whole family. I met Gary when I was living in East Selkirk. He was always friendly and very active. He also had a very lovely family. If there is a grocery store in heaven, I am sure he is already getting things in order. - Posted by: Sharon Smith (Acquantance) on: Feb 04, 2020
