March 19, 1947 - January 19, 2013
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Barry Rimer of Calgary, AB on January 19, 2013. He left us suddenly while living his Mexican dream in La Manzanilla, Mexico. His best friend and wife of 37 years, Susan, was by his side. Along with Susan, Barry is remembered by their four children, Adam, Lucas (Michelle), Cole and Lacey (Stephen) and his first grandchild, Aviva. He will also be greatly missed by his father Val Rimer and two brothers Alan (Shirley) and Miles (Susan). Barry was predeceased by his mother, Doris. Barry loved his ranch, his horses, his dogs and everything cowboy. He and Susan put together a great life and celebrated it on a daily basis. He always had a project on the go and lived by the belief that a lot can be accomplished when you do not care who gets the credit. He quietly left his mark on everyone and everything that he touched. A piece of all of us died when Barry suddenly left us, two months before his 66th birthday. How lucky we are to have known someone who is so hard to say goodbye to. A Memorial Service will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, February 1, 2013 at Temple B'nai Tikvah (900 - 47 Avenue S.W.). A celebration of Barry's life will follow at 4:00 p.m. at The Kensington Legion (1910 Kensington Road N.W.).
