  1. I am very thankful that I was able to watch Barry’s service. I have known Barry for approximately 67 years and enjoyed playing tennis with him for Panton Hill and my husband Max played football with him in the Premiership Team. I see that the football blazer was draped over his coffin. My husband kept his all his life too. Peace and love, Myra.

  2. R.I.P Barry you where always kind to other I first met your through your lovely sister Joy and niece Julie

  3. It’s a great joy and privilege to have known Barry as a friend, a colleague and a brother in Christ. Barry’s love for Jesus overflowed into his love for people, this was often shown in truly practical ways, Barry was the most capable handyman I know and he love imparting his skills to others. I pray that all Barry’s family will know our Lord’s comfort.

  4. Barry regularly spoke of his children and grandchildren lovingly and caringly.
    He would brag about each of your hobbies and your life ambitions from building homes to keeping snakes to motorbike and horse riding because he was proud of each one of you.
    I thank God for the time my family spent with him at Hurstbridge and beyond. He was a mentor to me and he taught me precious life lessons on how to raise my family and being a friend to others. He is a legend and will always be remembered in our household.
    What a beautiful service today, He was lifted up and Honoured.
    In fond memory, the Ross Family

  6. Many happy memories of Barry using his wet stone to sharpen our blunt knives in the kitchen @ DVBC while preparing lunches to feed those in need after black Saturday. Loved doing Church with our friend Barry ✝️

  14. I will always remember Barry’s dedication to those less fortunate, for his words of encouragement to me and many others. I remember his Christmas card every year was always lovely.

Rest in peace my friend, you will be missed.
