Barry Ira Adelman, 66, of Newberry Estate, Dallas, died Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012, at the Celtic Health Care Hospice Unit at Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre.

Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Barry was the son of the late Abraham (Sonny) and Lillian Entes Adelman.

He was an Army veteran of the Vietnam War.

Barry was employed as a salesman by several Wyoming Valley auto dealerships.

Barry was a unique individual who always maintained a positive outlook and, despite the many health challenges confronting him until the end, when asked how he was, he would always reply, "terrific!"

Surviving are his son, Adam Lyle Sebastian Adelman, Trucksville; brother, Dr. Charles Martin Adelman, Cedar Falls, Iowa; Adam's siblings, Erica, Alicia and Michael Sebastian, all of Trucksville; companion, Christie Innes, New Hope; his many friends at Newberry Estate and the Dallas Triangle Club.

Interment will be made in Mount Greenwood Cemetery, Trucksville. Friends may call at the funeral home from noon until the time of service Thursday.
