Barry, I will never forget the first time I was introduced to the family having met your Grandson Ash, a proper family party with plenty of your finest Whiskey! It was a pleasure to have met you then and known you ever since, the great grandad to our daughter Madison who loved coming over and looking in Grandads ‘sweetie drawer’!! She will miss you a great deal, as will I.
Rest in peace Barry
Love from us all xxx

Barry welcomed me into the family 25 years ago with a big smile and became not just my Father in Law, but a real friend.
We shared not only a love for Caroline, but also a love of sports and pub games as well. During our last chat he told me we would share a dram (or 2) of his beloved Royal Salute whiskey when i was next in the UK. Sadly that will now have to wait but tomorrow I will raise a glass to salute you.
Hope your arrows fly straight and you're never left knocking. RIP Barry

You were my rock Dad and although I know you will be forever by my side I will miss you every day.
No more calls when we always said ‘bonjour’ but never ‘au revoir’ but sadly the time has come
So ‘au revoir’ to my papa... love you always 💔
