Barry J. Eveland Sr. Obituary
Barry J. Eveland, Sr.

AGE: 59 • Wilmington, DE

Barry departed this life peacefully on October 25, 2016, following many years of battling illness and disability from a stroke.

Barry was a 1975 graduate of Ann Arbor High School and attended Rutgers University and the University of Delaware. However, he preferred to work with his hands, and worked over the years as a forklift operator and warehouseman, as a member of the Teamsters Union. In his earlier years, he enjoyed athletics, and played football at Dickinson High School and at Ann Arbor. He enjoyed hunting, especially for geese at Bombay Hook. He also enjoyed fishing with friends in Florida and the Outer Banks. He was an avid fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Reds. In his last years, even though physically disabled, he took great pride in and enjoyed his granddaughter, and his faithful Chesapeake Bay retriever, Bubba, who recently predeceased him.

Barry is survived by his son, Barry, Jr., (Lauren Biliski) and his beloved granddaughter, Charlotte. He is also survived by his devoted parents, Elwood T. Eveland, Sr. and Janeann Eveland, who spent most days by his side during his long illness. Also surviving are Barry's siblings, Elwood T. Eveland, Jr. (Susan) and Heather A. Scott (Jason), as well as his niece and nephews.

A viewing will be held at the Doherty Funeral Home, 3200 Limestone Rd., Pike Creek on Tuesday, November 1, 2016 from 5 to 7 p.m., with a funeral service to follow at 7. Burial will be private in Shamokin, PA.
