Memories Timeline


  1. I had so many wonderful dives in the early 80s with Barry’s shop. I will always remember his Santa Claus wetsuit. He was a warm and generous man, and will be greatly missed. My prayers are with his family.

  2. Nancy – I came across Barry’s Obituary in the paper this morning. I’m sorry for your loss and hope that you are doing as well as possible given the circumstances. My condolences to you and the rest of his family.
