Left to mourn his passing are his wife Anne, of 63 years; sons, Doug (Roselle) Paulsen of Winnipeg, Ken Paulsen of Sparwood, BC; daughter Heather (Bob) Stiles of Armstrong, BC; grandchildren, Rob Paulsen, Luke (Kyra) Paulsen, Meghan Paulsen, Carter Paulsen, Jaylyn (Cuyler) Smith, Bradi Ready and great-granddaughter Remi Smith; brother Terry (Meg) Paulsen of High River, AB, sister-in-law Diana Crossin of Oakbank, MB, brother in-law Bob (Carole) McDonald of Winnipeg, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Barry was born in Elphinstone, MB to Paul and Anne (Geekie) Paulsen on January 20, 1939. At the age of five the family moved to Whitemouth where Barry received most of his education before moving to Winnipeg where he graduated from high school. He then started working for Colgate/Palmolive in Winnipeg and shortly thereafter met Anne. Anne and Barry were married August 1, 1958. A few transfers between Dauphin and Brandon took place before settling in Dauphin in 1969 to raise their family. It was then Barry began his 32-year career with Ready-Mix of Dauphin, first as an employee and then as manager/co-owner. Retirement took them to settle permanently at the family cabin at Ditch Lake until 2020 when they moved back to Winnipeg.
Barry was an enthusiastic sports fan, enjoying all sports and most passionate about hockey, golf and curling. He managed the Dauphin Kings midget team, volunteered as a board member of the Dauphin Kings Hockey Club and drove the team on the "old bus" many times. Warmer weather took him to the golf course where he loved the friendly rivalry and wagers between friends. He was a member of the Dauphin Golf Club and Minnedosa Golf & Country Club for many years. Also, an avid curler, he curled with the Dauphin Curling Club and travelled throughout the province competing in bonspiels. Barry and Anne were dedicated curling fans following the Curling Brier across Canada for many years. He also loved a good game of "rummy" with friends. Barry was a long-time member of the Dauphin and Erickson Lions Club and the Erickson Lutheran Church.
His greatest joy was his grandchildren, and he was a dedicated fan and follower of their sports and interests. He was so proud to meet his great-granddaughter Remi just two weeks prior to his passing.
Known for his wonderful sense of humour and his kind, loving heart he will be dearly missed.
A Celebration of Life will be held on July 23, 2022, at the Bethel Lutheran Church, Danvers, Municipality of Clanwilliam-Erickson, MB.
The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to the staff at the St. Boniface Hospital and the Seven Oaks Hospital for their care during Barry's last days.
In lieu of flowers, should friends so desire, donations in memory of Barry may be made to CancerCare Manitoba, Erickson Lutheran Church or Bethel Lutheran Church.
