“We are so proud of you, we will miss you forever.”
Barry peacefully passed away on 29th November in the Royal Stoke University Hospital, aged 63 years.
Beloved husband of Bridget, loving father of Megan and Tom, cherished grandad of Emily and James and a dear brother.
Barry was born in Nantwich to proud parents, Maeve and Ron and the family lived on the Wistaston Green estate in Crewe. He attended St. Mary’s Primary school and the Blessed John Sherd High School.
From an early age he loved to go cycling, often pedalling for miles, sometimes as far away as Beeston. He also spent a lot of his childhood in Liverpool visiting relatives.
His first job was collecting glasses in the Cheshire Cat, which led to him doing some DJ work there a couple of nights a week. He loved his music and going to gigs, he carried this love throughout his life, eventually passing it on to his own children.
Barry met Bridget at Wistaston Manor and did most of their courting at the Cheshire Cat, eventually getting engaged on the car park on Christmas Eve! They married at St. Mary’s RC Church in Crewe and spent their honeymoon in Bala, North Wales.
Three years after they married Megan was born, followed by Tom, two years later. He was an amazing dad and always made time for the children, offering plenty of advice when asked.
Family holidays were full of wonderful memories, from trips into Wales and a main holiday when the family went touring in North America.
A couple of proud moments in his life came when he walked Megan down the aisle on her wedding day and attending Tom’s graduation at Liverpool John Moores university, plus of course, the birth of his two grandchildren.
Barry’s funeral will take place in Crewe Crematorium Chapel on Friday 21st December at 12.40pm.
Any donations in his memory will be for the valuable work of the British Heart Foundation.
