March 20, 1935 – December 21, 2020
Barrie Douglas Barlow, born March 20, 1935, passed away December 21st, 2020 at the age of 85. He will be greatly missed by Barbara his life friend and wife of 63 years and his children Mark, Monica and Carrie and their families. He is survived by his sister Bernice and leaves behind his lifelong friend Earl Mellish and many of his BC Rail pals including George and Gordon. “Poppi’s” 8 grandchildren will also miss his fun, little games, stories and kindness always! Son of Charles “Bud” and mother Eva “Blanche”, Barrie is also predeceased by his son James, and the “Barlow Boys” cousins Norman, Dean and Buddy.
Bares was a sweet quiet unassuming man, he loved anything to do with nature, made planning a practical joke an art, had a passion for jogging or riding his bike until he couldn’t, the smell of many new cars, tea no matter where you were and always a good newspaper. He loved being at the Cabin at Ness Lake, in the pool in Palm Springs, the back deck at Pender Harbour or sitting on the porch at home – just anywhere he could watch the birds or feed the squirrels. We will forever miss his inside jokes, little sneaky pranks, his nick names and inability to say a bad thing about anyone, his shyness, his care in assisting others and how he always stopped and talked to the elderly…so many little things made him so big to us.
We will each celebrate him alone until we can be together. Rest up Bares, you are free to run or ride again. And we got it covered, bird seed in the feeders, peanuts for the squirrels. We love you so much.
A huge thank you to the hard working and caring staff at Jubilee Lodge that were so much a part of Barb and Barrie’s life these past few years. In memory or in lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate to the Kidney Foundation BC Yukon https://kidney.ca/Support
We also ask that you take care, do not gather and please wear a mask as Covid-19 takes the innocent. ~ Love the Barlow Family
