I was very saddened to hear of Barry’s passing. Getting to know Baz way back when he lived with Andrena and Michelle in Sydney I fondly remember catching up for a few beers, watching a game of rugby (always a gracious All Black victor!), listening to some great music or having the odd philosophical discussion. Barry was genuine, caring and kind with a positive outlook on life and a great sense of humour. My deepest sympathies go out to Helen and family at this difficult time.

29 Jacksons Lane
Remembering Barry as a young man and flatmate at 29 Jacksons Lane Highgate London. Baz and Graeme hosted many comers and goers - a constant flow of Kiwis. Barry would put on a serious air and then a smile would light up his face and make you laugh. We are so sad you were taken too soon - Condolences to Helen, and your boys Rani and Noah.

Today's service was beautiful. No words can make up for the loss of a great soul at such a young age. My thoughts are with Helen, Rani, Noah, the extended family, and so many friends that Baz touched.

I got to know Baz through work and we worked together for many years. His humour and happiness brought light to every single day for myself and all the other people fortunate to work with him. Many of his jokes are still used by me on a regular basis. He was kind, supportive and caring during work times and outside as well. He displayed great love for his family and you could see the joy that they brought him every time he would talk about them. He was a great role model to me and will be fondly remembered always.
