  6. Barrie and Julie Orr :

    Barry was so unique with his sense of humor, intelligence and interest in everyone. He was one of our favorite people. As a married couple Barry and Lyn were always so kind to each other. They were the epitome of what is best in a marriage. We are so sorry to lose him as a friend, but his memory will never leave us. It was a pleasure knowing him. You must all be so proud to have had him in your family. He was certainly proud of all of you. Julie & Barrie Orr
