Barry was employed by Canadian Pacific Airlines and then Pacific Western Airlines as Station Manager at the Castlegar Airport until his retirement in 1988. Barry enjoyed the outdoors especially hunting and fishing. He always looked forward to his annual trip to the ‘cabin’ with his close friends. His greatest pride was spending time in his garden and watching it grow Barry was quick witted and always ready to pull a ‘prank’ on his friends. He was a great story teller and could make you believe the most outrageous of things were actually real. His laughter was contagious and he loved to make others laugh.
The family wishes to thank all of their friends and family for their support. Thank you also to Dr. Peachell, Dr. Cochrane and all of the staff in I.C.U of KBRH.
