BARRY, Donald Joseph
Born in Edmonton June 23, 1931, Don died in Canmore, AB on May 30, 2014. Don was variously known as: the Duck, the Bear, Don Bear and Coach. His professional football career was played entirely with the Edmonton Eskimos Football Club from 1952 to 1962, a period when the team played in ten Western Finals and five Grey Cups, winning three. Don earned his living working for the City of Edmonton: 25 years with Edmonton Telephones and then 16 more with the City of Edmonton Planning and Development Department, retiring as the Director of Development Co-ordination in 1991. Don will be sorely missed by Susan, his much loved and loving wife, helpmeet and companion in adventure for over 30 years. He is also survived by his children: sons, John (Gabi), Pat (Sandy), Andy (Karen), and James (Beverly) Barry; daughter Gina (Scott) Mead; and their mother Georgie; his grandchildren: Michael (Katie) and Daniel Barry; Megan (Edward) Kilmister; Landice, Kelty (Brian), Joel, Kayla and Alyssa Barry, and Jessica and Mitchell Mead; two great-grandchildren: Eli and Isla Kilmister.
