Barry will be missed a lot, not only by his neighbors and friends but complete strangers who he had helped out through these years. His smile and his mechanical abilities went hand in hand. He would fix something and look at you and say.... "It should hold"! Then you would say.... "what do I owe you"?... and his answer would be... "aaah catch me around next time".... then he would smile. To all who knew him and those that wished they had, I tell those Angels make room for his smile in heaven, for its a good habit to get into. We will all miss him dearly..... Love..
