Barry was passionate about giving back. He was a volunteer at Mission Hospital for 23 years working in the gift shop, fundraising for the Auxiliary and treasurer for 3 years. He volunteered at the Hoag Classic golf tournament for 20 years. He realized his dream in 1990 and lived on the 3rd hole at Tijeras Creek golf course. Barry also worked at the golf course for 25 years. He will be truly missed by everyone he knew.
