As we get older, it's so sad to see friends from so long ago pass away, but so thankful for the memories that they've left in our hearts. Ran into Barry shortly after college and we had the chance to catch up. He was funny, thoughtful and had such an enormous passion for cooking. Was hoping to catch up with him again at the reunion but . . . . . . life is so fragile. ♥

Sorry to hear of Barry's passing. I remember him as always having a smile on his face. We didn't have any real contact other than passing in the hallways. He seemed like a nice person, good to hear that that is how others who knew him better than I remember him.
Like Sherman, I first met Barry in the 6th grade at Broadview. Barry was an outgoing and charismatic guy. I recall him playing lead guitar in a band at Thompson Jr. High school. I think it was him, Larry Greene on drums and Steve Boyce? I lost contact with Barry after he left Thompson. He was a good guy, and lots of fun. RIP.

Remember the time Barry convinced us to all turn our desks around to face the rear of the classroom? (At Thompson Jr) Can't remember the teacher, but I remember he walked in, did a double take, and left the room immediately in angry frustration. Chagrined, we turned our desks quietly around and were waiting quietly when he returned.
Barry was always pushing the envelope and I see that he did this with his cooking adventures. Would have loved to known him longer and heard some of these stories. Looks like he had an interesting life with Cook Like A Warrior.
Not sure where to send condolences. Let me know if anyone does know.
