Barry was a great guy, always very friendly and lots of laughs. Barry, when he worked for the Highways used to sweep the front of our driveway with the big sweeper, he just did it did not ask him to do that. Great Guy!!!!

From: Harold Buvyer
Relation: My old friend Brian's brother

Dear Brian,

I’m so sorry to hear about your brother’s passing. He was much too young. I have passed Barry’s obituary onto my brother Bob – he and Barry were next door neighbours many years ago when he lived in Port Coquitlam. This is the time to surround yourself with those who love you, old friend – they will make you feel better.

Your old buddy,


From: Margaret Harkness
Relation: Friend

My deepest condolences to Diane and all her family. Barry will be greatly missed and it will leave a big hole in our golfing community as well.
