MAGUIRE, Barry

October 27, 1966 – October 30, 2011

Barry Maguire, beloved husband of Vineeta of Calgary, Alberta, passed away suddenly in the Netherlands on Sunday, October 30, 2011 at the age of 45 years.

Barry was born in Montreal and raised in Hull, QC, where he developed the beginnings of a lifelong interest in fitness and sports, ultimately playing Major Junior ice hockey in Shawinigan, QC, and later playing with the University of Ottawa. Barry was an accomplished golfer and skier who loved outdoor adventures of all sorts with his family and friends.

Barry graduated from the University of Ottawa in Chemical Engineering. As a professional engineer working in the oil and gas industry, his leadership abilities and interpersonal acumen enabled his rise into senior leadership at Shell Energy Canada, during his 23 year career with Shell. At the time of his passing, Barry was General Manager, Design Engineering – Onshore North America. He was very active in philanthropic causes, including roles on the Board of Directors for Easter Seals Canada and as a key member of the United Way campaign for Shell Canada.

Besides his wife Vineeta, Barry is survived by his loving daughters Shivana and Shalina, by his parents, Bernard and Diane Maguire and brother, Patrick Maguire of Gatineau (Hull), QC. Barry’s great joy and love for his family were constants in his life.
Barry’s intellect, insights, sense of humour and out-of-doors companionship will be sorely missed by the Khare and Maguire families. We will always remember him as a loving family man, with boundless energy, drive and compassion.

A Funeral Service will be held at St. Stephen’s Church, 212 Chemin Old Chelsea, Chelsea, QC, J9B 1J6, on Saturday, November 5, 2011 at 11:00 AM.

A Memorial Service will be held at Knox United Church, 506 4th Street SW, Calgary, Alberta, T2P 1S7, Tuesday, November 8, 2011 at 2:00 pm.

If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made in Barry Maguire’s name directly to Easter Seals 103, 811 Manning Road N.E. Calgary AB, T2E 7L4 (403) 235-5662 http://easterseals.ab.ca/.

Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Barry Maguire, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot Chapel, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W. Telephone: (403) 241-0044.

    Our family is devastated to have heard that, your husband, your children’s father and our good friend Barry, is no longer here with us. We want you to know that you and the girls have been thought of every single day since we heard the news, and we also want you to know that we will be here for you, when you need us and I truly mean that. You have many people around you now and that is good and so very important but we will be there after too, this I will promise you. We will make a point to connect and check in and see how you are managing and provide any assistance that we can. We care for you deeply and so wish we could take the pain away but . . . . only time will allow that pain to lessen. You and the girls are in our thoughts always and we (your friends in Prince George) are so very sad that this has happened to you, to your beautiful girls and to those of us that cared for such a generous man.

  5. Easter Seals was so fortunate to have Barry as a leader and passionate volunteer for so many years. We will always remember his commitment to rebuilding our camp, and will endeavour to carry on his dream.

    I was very sad to hear Barry passed away. He was a very supportive colleague in my time at Shell and we became good friends. He was also my linemate on the Shell hockey team. I will never forget Barry’s supportive nature and willingness to lend a had for any cause. My heart goes out to your family.

  7. Our deepest condolences to Vineeta and the girls and the Maguire and Khare families. Words can not express our sense of loss and sadness at this painful time. As one of Barry’s Easter Seals “family” and as a fellow board member I can attest to how passionate and enthused he was to participate in all matters of governance and management of Easter Seals Camp Horizon. He lent his substantial skills and expertise to a very worthwhile cause knowing he was putting something back into the community that he lived in. I know Vineeta and family would be rightfully proud of what Barry accomplished in a relatively short period of time. Our prayers are with you.

  78. 2004 June I worked indirectly for Barry and our co-worker Alicia was diagnosed with cancer. Alicia’s family lived in Peru, she had no one here. Upon many visits and conversations with Alicia, she held a positive attitude and continually expressed said she would see her family at Christmas. As the hospital contact, I received a call asking for me to come to the hospital, it was at this time Alicia needed her family. Returning to the office I went directly to Barry where he asked me the prognosis, I told him “it doesn’t look good and Alicia is asking for her family”. After immigration turned her family away with less than $300Cdn, we raised ~$10,000 in 8hrs and Barry pulled his magic with Joe Clark’s office as we needed a Security Bond. I never knew if the company put up the bond or if Barry did, but it didn’t really matter. Her parents arrived with everything detail in place including translators and police escorts. Because of his efforts, Mr. and Mrs. Ostos were able to fly their daughter home for her final resting place. For this on behalf of the OSTOS Family, Thank you Barry, we are Eternally Grateful for having an opportunity to be with our daughter.

    Ostos Family, Peru

  79. Oh Vineeta,

    My sincere condolences to you,your girls and both your families. It seems like only yesterday. I can still see Barry with the girls at Veera and Lance’s Wedding Ceremony …they were putting rose petals on his head as he sat with them. It was so sweet, I took a photo of them. I am very saddened and wishing you lots of love and light to carry on in the coming days.

    Hugs,

    Emily

  85. Andrew (Andy) Palmer :

    Vineeta, as you already know, you are the only family member who I have met. I am confident that your late husband’s radiant smile genuinely reflected his love of his family and greater humanity.
    The massive list of condolences above speaks volumes too.
    However, I am simply not capable of comprehending the anguish that surely burdens you. I urge you to strive to regain, in due time, your similarly powerful smile for the benefit both yourself and your children. In addition, if you ever think of a way I can be of assistance, please don’t hestitate to ask, although it seems to me that it is quite a paltry offer. I can and will pray that God will give you that extra measure of parenting skill that now you will surely need.
    – Andy
