Barry grew up on a farm a few miles outside of Altona, Manitoba and went on to farm alongside his dad Jake before eventually going on to work for Enbridge as a Pipeline Maintenance Technician.
Barry loved to travel with his wife Tammy, and they enjoyed many winter holidays in the Caribbean. He also loved to camp, and would spend many summer weekends in Cavalier with cherished family and friends. He took great pride in his home and loved to build, keeping himself and his sons busy with many projects around the farm and eventually their new home in Altona.
