Lover of Travel and the Arts
Barry Glick liked to help people.
Jean Neufeld, his daughter, said that at lunchtime her father would often descend from his 64th-floor office to the ground floor of the World Trade Center complex and look for tourists who seemed lost.
Mr. Glick, who was 56, was risk manager for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. In that role, he handled insurance matters for the various properties the agency owns. His group had only recently finished six or seven years of work dealing with insurance matters stemming from the 1993 bombing of the trade center.
Away from the office, Mr. Glick and his wife, Judy, enjoyed travel, music and the arts. For many years the couple were subscribers to the New York State Ballet in Saratoga Springs.
He was also crazy about pop music from the 1950's and 60's.
"We both liked the oldies," said Leonard Jacob, who knew Mr. Glick for about 20 years. "He was an expert on it, from who the groups were to where they were from to when a particular record came out."
Alan Weissman, another friend, said he had received a letter from Mr. Glick on Sept. 10. "We were planning to take a trip to Italy this summer," Mr. Weissman said. "The letter talked about possible itineraries."
That trip will probably be postponed, Mr. Weissman said.
"I don't think we will be going," he said. "It would be kind of painful."
