Barry was well known for his generosity and kind heart. He always gave a helping hand to people he knew and any of his friends from living downtown. He was fun-loving and liked making people laugh. He lived with his sister Isabel's family and cared for her children like they were his own. They will miss him dearly. He also would have your back if anyone tried hurting his family.
He worked for the Acme Waste Department, where he would find little treasures. In Summertime he would work with the Tac crew during firefighting season. He was a hard worker and always lent a helping hand.
Uncle enjoyed music; when he was younger, he had a gigantic collection of music with various artists. Every time he got paid, he bought a new record. He enjoyed every minute of visiting his friends and family.
A viewing will be held on Thursday, September 28, 2023, between the hours of 6 p.m.– 8 p.m. at the Eternal Grace 1111 Logan Ave, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Light lunch will be provided.

The family would like to thank all those who helped Uncle through the years. A special thank you to his niece Denise Swampy.
We apologize if we missed anyone or misspelled any name.
