MUSHLIN, Barry Age 78, of Randolph, passed away on January 11, 2021 in his sleep, after recent battles with Guillain-Barré Syndrome and lung cancer. Beloved husband of Roslyn Mushlin for over 54 years. Father of Jeremy Mushlin and his wife Auria Abraham, and of Andrew Mushlin and his wife Allison Mushlin. Grandfather to Neena Mushlin, Ari Mushlin, and Keira Mushlin. In addition, many close nieces, nephews, and cousins. He will be missed by all. Before retirement, Barry served as Director of Toxicology at Boston University Medical Center and subsequently for the New England region of the Veteran's Administration hospital system. Post-retirement he spent his time enjoying life – visiting and playing with his grandchildren, reading, doing the NYT crossword puzzle, and as an avid political memorabilia enthusiast. Barry was also known for his cooking and baking, much of which was learned from his mother. There was almost never a family event where he didn't bring his famous chocolate chip cookies. During Hanukkah, everyone looked forward to his made-from-scratch potato latkes. Luckily he was more than happy to share his techniques with the family. A private Graveside Service will be held on Thursday, January 14th at Sharon Memorial Park. Shiva will not be observed at this time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Turner Free Library in Randolph, MA. Schlossberg Chapel on the Hill "Family Owned" 781-828-6990

In 1966 I came to the Pharmacology Department of Boston University Medical Center as a graduate student. In the laboratory of Dr. Joseph Cochin one of the first people I met was Barry; we have remained friends ever since. We worked side-by side on our own projects for many years. Barry’s attention to detail made him the perfect person to do the important analytical chemistry work that became his career.
He arrived every morning armed with his two bagels (from Zeppy’s)-and-cream for lunch and one for later.
During the day we had many conversations about the really important things in our lives: The hummus at the Red Fez, the spareribs in black bean sauce at the house of Roy, the campaigns of James Michael Curly, and the beloved Mustang that he and Roz drove to Canada on their honeymoon (everyone gawked at that revolutionary car everywhere they stopped.)
Elaine and I will remember and miss the many dinners at Biblo’s with Barry and Roz.
Goodbye, my friend.

As children, Barry and I lived in the same apartment building. Our apartments shared a common wall. I haven’t seen his name in about 65 years. It brings back childhood memories. I’m saddened by his passing a hope he had a happy life.
