Long-time industry friend and fellow Pioneer Jim Parker commented, "Very sad news. Last I heard from him was an email saying 'I'm off to our family fishing trip - don't send emails until the 9th.' He was so proud of his family and the fishing trips. Barry made a huge contribution to the industry and the WinDoor show!"
