    Barry was more than just a boss/manager. He was someone you could confide in and come to when you were feeling blue. A truly kind and compassionate person who was so down to earth. Barry was one of the most personable people I’ve met in many years. It was truly a pleasure to work with him and know him. My thoughts are with his family.

    Susan, Steve and Jennifer, sad to hear of your loss of Barry. It was a shock to hear of his passing. He was a GREAT man to many of us and a soul that met you where you were and helped you be a better person. He was a friend and a mentor who will be missed.
    Love and prayers to each of you and your families. He will have the short yellow bus ready to carry each of you into heaven where he lives with that big heart of his.

    I have a fond memory of Barry that I will always remember. At work he would walk down the aisles singing walk like an Egyptian with hands forming like an Egyptian. My prayers are with his wife and family. God Bless

    I will never forget the one and only Boss who was so understanding and supportive when his employees were going through a very difficult time. He was always so easy to talk to; yet just. He always had a story to start in a meeting or for any occasion that would always put a smile on your face. Barry felt almost like the team’s Dad. He was such a great human being that he couldn’t help but be the best Boss. The best to the point that I turned down a position within the company twice even when offered more money and closer to home, because I valued him more and knew money would never replace the value it was to have him as a Boss. You will be missed Boss man. Heaven gained one of the best.

    Thinking of Barry and his family in this time of loss. Barry will long be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I only had the privilege of work for Barry for little over a year but he was one of the best bosses I had. He would always walk around and have a smile on his face. You could see his eyes light up any time he talked about his family, specially his wife and son.
