Barry was an avid motorcycle rider, skilled machinist, and world’s greatest Dad. He had many nicknames — MacGyver, the Mayor, and Brother. He loved to vacation, work around our home, and spend time with his kids. We were told on July 27, 2016 that he had a tumor on his pancreas. Visits to experts at 2 university medical centers revealed that his cancer more likely started in the bile ducts. Despite chemotherapy to which he initially responded well, he died 6 months later. We mourn his loss and miss him every day. We want to raise awareness so that others do not experience our pain.
