Laureen and Family,
Please accept our condolences upon the passing of your dear husband, father, and grandfather. We have known Barry for many years, since the early 1960's.
Barry was such a personable guy, always interested in us and our family.He had a very successful career with Chevron and Sigma and left many good memories with those who worked with him. He was elected by his peers to be President of the Canadian Geophysical Society, a testament to his status in his profession.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at these difficult times.

I just heard of Barry's passing, and I'm very sad. I interacted with him a lot over the years - as fellow CSEG past-Presidents, at the Doodlebug, Sigma board meetings, etc. - and I always enjoyed his company. One thing about Barry that really stands out in my memory is his fantastic, wry sense of humour. The year he was CSEG President he would act as the MC for the monthly technical lunches; some of the jokes he cracked at those events were just hilarious. His delivery was so dry that more often than not many in the audience didn't even realise he was joking. He was a great guy and I'll miss him.

Laureen, Amy, Neil and the extended family.
I am so sorry to hear of Barry's passing. Of all the people I have met and had the pleasure of knowing, Barry was the kindest, nicest man of all. His calm, caring attitude and kind, happy demeanor always inspired and gave confidence. He was a good, good man.

Our hearts are heavy with the news of Barry's passing. He was such a wonderful, kind man - the world will be smaller without him. May our friendship, sympathy and heartfelt condolences bring you comfort.
Love to you all,

Laureen, Amy, and Neil,
I was saddened to learn of cousin Barry's passing. From the many Korchinski family gatherings we had I remember Barry as a happy, kind and gentle soul. He will be sorely missed. Please accept our condolences.

I had not seen Barry since the early 60's; I grew up in Blaine Lake but remember well the Korchinski family from Hafford ... also, my aunt Olga married his uncle Murray. Our families had occasional gatherings ... Lanny(Les) was my age, Bernadene older, and Barry younger. I also attended U of S, and eventually lost touch with the Korchinski's. I was very sad to read this obituary, and extend my deepest sympathy to Barry's family.

Laureen & Family,
Sending you all the love during this difficult time. It was such a joy to have Barry pop into the lounge at Cottonwood. He will be missed!

I recognized Barry Korchinski when I read his obituary in the Saskatoon StarPhoenix newspaper. We were in the same first year university class, including chemistry labs. My condolences to family and Alberta friends.

Dear Laureen,

Gail and I are very saddened by Barry's passing, and offer our condolences to Neil, Amy and yourself.

I have many fond memories of Barry. He was kind and patient with a wry sense of humour. As a boy growing up in Saskatoon, I looked forward to Barry and Les taking time from their engineering studies to join my parents (Anne & Bonace) for dinner and conversation.

As a young man who headed west to pursue his dreams, I will forever be in Barry & your debt. When I first came to Alberta, it was Barry more than anyone else who helped me get established in Calgary. Like Bernard, Barry had a positive outlook on life, and loved his family dearly.

As an IT Professional who has worked for many energy companies, I was impressed by the number of individuals who knew (and spoke highly) of Barry. He was also a very talented craftsman, who did amazing woodwork. The finished basement along with many other home improvement projects highlighted his skill and attention to detail.

In spite of his many accomplishments, he was thoughtful and modest in his dealings with me, and always seemed to have a kind word for others. He was my favourite cousin, and I'm going to miss him greatly.

Sincerely,
Rob
