In Memory

Donald Barry

Donald Barry

Don had been living with M.S. for many years in Fairbanks, Alaska. When his condition worsened and he could no longer live alone, an assisted-living facility was not available in Fairbanks, so he moved to Phoenix to be near his sister, Kathleen and her husband. His health deteriorated, he was hospitalized, and died in October of last year.

Sorry to hear about Barry.  He was one of the first to be-friend me when I came to Los Altos.

What a loss. Don, you were one of the first friends I had when I moved from East Pally. I still remember the times we spent writing the newspaper The Daily Weekly printed monthly. The times we spent with Steve and Clark. The Washington's birthday run to Stanford and back. Farewell, my friend.

Don was one of those special people who will reach out to the new kid in class and make his life a bit easier.

Sorry to hear of Don's passing, he was a really nice fellow and I'm sure he is missed. Be with God my friend!

 Those of you who have written a note about Don's passing have treated him with kindness & dignity.  His last photo posted 1 1/2 years ago shows those characteristics in his expression...kind, sweet & a friend that is remembered for his attention to you all 50+ years ago!  He & I shared the same B'Day!  Leos in life & thereafter! Fondly, Sue

Nicely written, Sue-& it brings to mind something I've been thinking for several months.  That is that our class was so big, most of us didn't get a chance to know everyone.  It makes me a little sad that there were (or are) so many wonderful people that I never knew.  A waste of an opportunity I can only say.  Treating all with dignity and respect doesn't solve this issue but it helps a little. Don, I'm sorry I didn't know you. Gene, I'm sorry I didn't know you better.

So sorry to hear about  Don' passing.  I ran into Dona few years after after college I graduated from college - actually my first chance to get to know him better (I dated a friend of his).  What was wonderful about Don, was what you saw, was what you got. A genuinely nice guy with a fun sense of humor.

Likewise to your words, Francie and Ellen. There WERE so many more I never knew. Don was one but I never viewed him from afar without that warm beaming smile, friends drawn to him like honey. This forum from Mike, et al, gives us these great years to say hello and then goodbye again. From Almond Ave. to distant places and now back again. Sorry to not have known you Don, condolences to your family.

I also was unaware of Donald's condition. We both went to Springer Elem., Covington and on to Los Altos High together. I was saddened to hear this news. Donald and his family are in my prayers. Lois Clampitt Bock
