Through the years he became well known throughout down east Maine for his love of country music, performing at venues far and wide with some of the best musicians around. He was well regarded for his skills as a finish carpenter and built and remodeled several homes throughout the area. He learned every detail about topics that held great interest for him…he was a sportsman, fly fishing the Narraguagus River where he holds the record for landing the largest salmon. He was an avid supporter of high school sports in his later years, attending nearly every Sumner basketball game.
His legacy though was his family and its through them and their lives he became most fulfilled. He leaves behind his children Laurie, Valerie, Vicky, Shawna, Deidre, Linda, Susan, Stacey, Jackie, and a son Chris, many grandchildren, cousins and friends. He was predeceased by his son Michael.
He is going home now to be laid to rest on the hill in Hog Bay where he longed never to leave.

Cousin Barry gave me my nickname, Biscuit, 50 some odd years ago. I smile and think of him every time someone calls me Biscuit. I am so grateful that I was able to see Barry again a few years ago. Godspeed Barry. Fair winds and following seas.

Dad, there are no words. I pray you are at peace and have no pain. You lived a full and wonderful life with so many who loved you. You are now with My Mom, your Mom, your Dad, Aunts, Uncles, friends and the list goes on. You had 87 good years of life. You are blessed. You will be missed by many. I will miss you and will always love you. RIP Dad, and thought I would send with you a picture of you and me from 1953.
