GAGLIARDI – Barry Ivor

April 28, 1950 – May 8, 2011

Barry passed away peacefully with his partner by his side after a brave battle with brain cancer.

His partner Ron Scheetz; his father Rosino Gagliardi; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins in Ontario and the Jones family in Youngstown, Ohio along with the Grandoni family and step sisters (Virginia and Martha), survive him.

His mother Jessie-Doreen Gagliardi, of Cefn-Hengoed, Wales, predeceased Barry in 2002, whom he chose to be with this Mother’s Day on May 8, 2011.

Barry was born on April 28, 1950 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. He devoted his life to his family, friends and his love of teaching. His journey as an educator took him from Ontario to Rae-Edzo, Yellow Knife, NWT, Cold Lake, AB and then to Calgary. As an educator, he gave his time, energy and love to his students and faculty colleagues. He was a proud member of Calgary’s gay business community as a co-owner of the Calgary Eagle, a dream he realized with his partner and friends. Barry loved his garden, which was an oasis of calm for his family and friends. Barry had a great passion and love for all of his dogs.

We will miss his laughter, smile and humour, as well as his dedication to those he affected. He touched many on his journey and for that his memory will be cherished and celebrated.

His father thanks Barry for being an incredible son who gave his special love and attention to his parents. His father will miss his son’s cooking and their time together.

Special thanks to all the staff and volunteers at the Rosedale Hospice for their extreme dedication and care to him.

Poem by Barry Gagliardi, February 2011
Hello God
It’s just me ‘Barry’

Thank you for everything in my life,
The good and the bad
Want to be known for being loved
The most, not the least
Bless my dogs – May they live long
Bless Ron, David, Dad, Cousins and Friends
May Happiness fall into their lives
Like a beautiful Rainbow
Thanks God, for listening
I’m not afraid
Look forward to seeing MOM
Thanks God

Its amazing how a person can have such an impact on you… 20 years ago I sat in his theatre and knew him as Mr G, teacher. 10 years ago he danced with me at my wedding and promised to teach until my kids could be in his class, and said to call him Barry now…my friend. And today I mourn him and celebrate him, for all the man he was.. Love ya Mr G x0x0x

    I was a shy kid. I took drama for the credits. But Mr. Gagliardi changed all that. He forced me out of my shell and helped make me who I am. Whenever anyone asks where I get my confidence, still, to this day, I tell them about Mr. Gagliardi. My life would have been so different without his influence. He was a great man with a heart of gold. He was full of passion. He loved his students, even when they forced him into a leave of absence due to stress. Despite all that, he loved us. And we loved him.

  10. Sholeh (Alemi) Fabbri :

    My deepest sympathy to Ron, Mr. Rosino Gagliardi and all who loved Mr. G.

    As one of Mr.G’s former students I wanted to let you know how much of an impact he had on my life and how I often think of him.

    Mr. G was an incomparable educator and mentor. Most of my fondest memories from high school are intertwined with him and his fantastic drama productions – from “Nunsense” to “The Tempest” – he made all of us believe in something bigger than ourselves.

    My first day in grade 10 I had him as my drama teacher. He stood up in front of the class and told us how drama was an art and not a silly game. I know that he scared a few students away but I sat there hanging off his every word. When I had a chance a few days later to transfer to the school I thought I wanted to go to, where all my friends were, I stayed because of him. I wanted to learn from him and hopefully be lucky enough to be in his productions. I was. A few years later he even presented me with the Gagliardi award. I was honoured. I still am.

    In his poem Mr. G expresses the desire to be loved. I hope he knows how much he was by his students and I’m truly sorry I didn’t get to see him in recent years – although I did once show up at his home years after high school to say hi.

    He was a great man and I am blessed for having had him in my life. We all were.

    Sincerely,

    Sholeh

    A former student at James Fowler High School ’92-’95

    I am sad to hear of the passing of Barry. I knew him as a drama teacher. He loved his work and put so much passion into it spending long hours rehearsing with students. His work was high quality theatre with variety – incredible acting and fabulous movement and design. He gave his time tirelessly to the Alberta High School Drama Festival donating his honorariums to the organization instead of keeping them. He and his fellow executives kept the organization going during the hard times. To me, he gave so much support when I switched careers to be a drama teacher. He offered advice, supplies and anything else that was needed. Barry got me involved in the AHDSF and I went on to become President. I am so grateful for Barry’s gentle, kind and funny influence in my life. I will miss him.

    Dear Ron and Gagliardi family,

    Barry was the first one to welcome us to his old neighbourhood back in 1990…just showed up with a “Hi and Welcome!” plus a lasagna ready to pop in the oven while we were renovating our house. That was the kind of warm and welcoming person he was and we were privileged to be his neighbours for the next few years. He always had the best garden and the biggest heart. He will be missed. Please know you are in our prayers.

    I was saddened to see Barry’s obituary today and wish to send my condolences to those who loved him best.

    Barry and I taught together at James Fowler High School years ago. I was always struck by Barry’s energy and dedication to his drama productions. One memory I have is of a grade 10 student, painfully shy and reticent in my Science class, who in one of Barry’s plays shone like a bright light. The boy’s transformation on stage reflected the work of a teacher who had faith in his students’ abilities and could make them visible to an audience and, perhaps most importantly, to the student himself. I respected Barry for that. It was also obvious that Barry was tremendously close to his family. He will be missed by many.

    With sympathy,
    Dave Severson

You made us work harder to achieve better, and never allowed us to give up.

This time I was saddened to tears to find his smiling face on this site. I knew Barry from spending time with him in the early Eighties. He was such a warm, kind and generous man. And funny! He introduced me to Bryan Adams, and Saki among other things. His memory makes me smile. I will always remember him. I don’t know if you’ll get this but I just want you to know I think of him often with fond memories. I hope your memories make you smile too.Take care, all the best to you. Doug Lyle.

  54. To Mr. G’s family,

    I was so sorry to hear that we have lost such a great man… It has been almost three years now and I still do not think I can find the words to tell you how much Mr. G meant to me. As a student, when I felt like no one cared, he reached out with a simple hug. I don’t think he ever realized what that small gesture did and how much strength it gave to a very shy and awkward young girl. I never did get a chance to thank him. Mr. G. was a passionate and talented teacher. He inspired and touched many lives and will never be forgotten.

    Thank you Mr. G.
