I just found out about Barry's passing and I'm so truly saddened by this news. I met Barry my freshman year of college as we knew a mutual friend and we were all from the Northern suburbs. We spent Some time navigating our way through our 1st year at LaCrosse and hanging out a bit at Coate hall and 3rd Street. I was always happy to catch up with Barry during our time at LaX. Barry was Kind, compassionate, and really just such a great guy. I'm just so sorry for your loss. Condolences to your entire family. The world lost one of the good ones.

Please accept my condolences. I didn't know Barry personally, but I also attend All Saints Church at 10:30. I recently saw Mary, his wife, in church when we were asked at Mass to pray for Barry,as he was dying from cancer.
I am so sorry for your loss. Barry was taken from you too soon. I regret I never met him, because reading other condolences it sounds like he was a really great guy to know.
May your memories of him bring you comfort. Your All Saints family will embrace you & keep you & your family in prayer. May he rest in peace. God bless you all.

I was so sorry to hear of Barry's passing. I will recall with great fondness our time together at Wisconsin Electric. I remember he did the best Jim Klauser impression which was made even better by the fact that I knew Jim as well. It makes me chuckle to think about it now - and know Barry is joining me in that chuckle.

I will also remember his great love for his family - Diane and I send our deepest sympathies.

Our lives were all made much more rich for Barry having walked among us. He will be missed and treasured.

Barry was one of the nicest people I have ever encountered in my career, and at We Energies. A true inspiration to us all. Kind, warm, and very thoughtful, caring individual. I wouldn't have seen Wrigley Field if it weren't for his generosity. My deepest sympathies to the family. He is an angel now and will live forever.

As has been said by others, Barry was one of the good ones, and God calls those home the earliest, it seems. I am so sorry for your great loss, Mary and family. Barry is very fondly remembered by many thousands of people whom he influenced and worked with, and even more who have been fortunate and privileged to call him friend, going back many decades now.

One of the nicest if not the nicest person I have ever met. He was open, kind, fun, and he was in a small way a part of our annual vacations. We, (Kathleen & I,) would come across a Barry & McNulty street on vacation, we would stop, take the picture and email or text it to him. For years she would say, "turn around, I want to get this picture and send it to Barry."
He was a good man, one of the hardest working guys I knew. We lost a kind soul, he will be missed but never forgotten. RIP brother.
