Barry will be sadly missed by many cousins, nieces, nephews, and plenty of friends, including Colleen. Barry was a Draftsperson by trade, also had his CIM and worked many years as a Quality Control Manager. His true passion was his store, the Sauble Beach Outpost. He had a strong presence in the Sauble Beach community as a Chamber of Commerce member, and a long time Lion’s member. He was frequently seen at the Sauble Community Ctr setting up for special events. Most knew Barry with his guitar. He was musical as he could hop on any instrument and play. His guitar went with him to every get-together, and social event. His affection for music was memorable. Family wish to express their gratitude to the exemplary care at Chapman House in Owen Sound.
