Survived by his sisters Mildred (Albert) and Marjorie (Desi). Son-in-law to Meryle (Sparling) and the late Hilliard Rebertz. Brother-in-law to Helen (Neil), Barry (Lise), Brian (Karen), Dale (Nancy), Royce, Ronnie (Jeanne), Floyd (Kerry), Ward (Lucy), Kerry and Kevin (Tammy).

Barrie was a lover of nature, whether hunting, fishing or just spending time at the farm. He spent 50 years of his life working in the bush starting at age 13 and retiring at 63. He was involved with the Otter Lake Volunteer Fire Department for a time and was proud of it, therefore donations in his name to this organization or to the Palliative Care unit at the Pontiac Community Hospital Foundation would be appreciated. Service to be held at a later date.
