Thanks for the great memories from our time in London & our wedding (see photos of you & Gavin before and during Haka). Over 32 years of friendship.

Leaving the Maida Vale Flat, on one of your many travels, so I could occupy the "boys room" the rest is history. We will all miss you, the stories, parties, the laughter & fun you brought to a lot of people over the years.

It was great meeting you & Helen after all those years in Brisbane, you met our kids, we caught up. YOU took us to the airport all 5 of us piled in with Helen and yourself. Generous as always.

We will miss you Baz, far too soon. Strength and love to all your family and friends.

One quick Barry Robin story. When I met you in London, you were so proud on getting your 3rd working holiday visa to allow you stay 6 years in London, you had just accidentally washed your passport with your jeans in Zimbabwe, your newly issued NZ passport was duly stamped for 2 more years on your arrival at Heathrow. Grant

You were one of the most colorful people: full of life, personality and authentic. Gone way too soon. Wishing your family and dear ones lots of strength. Irreplaceable. Xxoo Pauline

I am so devastated knowing Barry is not with us anymore. Barry was one of the best colleague I worked with. Always happy, cheerful and full of energy. Barry and I worked at Brisbane Airport and in no time we became best work mate and close friends. He made work enjoyable and interesting with his great sense of humor. I ended up making song for Barry in Hindi which became our greeting everyday. Most days when I saw Barry I would sing that song and Barry would dance on it. Absolutely great human being and a friend.

Barry, you will be sorely missed.Rest in peace brother. My deepest sympathies go out to Barry' family.

Barry on work day at BAC
I remember Barry as a happy, friendly guy and would always stop and have a chat. My husband and I had the pleasure to work with him on the Goro project 2002-3. Our condolences and prayers to his family and that he will be fondly remembered.

So, saddened to hear the news of my one of the best work colleagues. Barry was a great guy and a pleasure to work with. I met Barry in early 2018 in MPC’s Broken Hill Project and soon, we became intimate friends. We used to sit together for lunch, dinner and go to Gym when we were on site. He also shared his experience visiting my country Nepal and we had a discussion to visit Nepal together someday, which became impossible now. In my last meet with him in Spring Gully, he discussed about his Thailand Trip with his family. He was the person who always brought a smile to my face every day on site. I am so sorry for your loss, Barry. You will always be remembered as one of my best friend.
