    Barry was not only a fine actor but an outstanding gentleman and public servant. Aside from his busy schedule in his acting roles he spent 21 years as a Los Angeles Police Reserve Officer. I had the good fortune to work with Barry on many police details. He treated people with respect and sincere kindness. My loss revolves around a fine actor, gentleman, police officer and a friend.
    Rest in peace Barry

  5. Barry’s ALHS classmates, January 1959,are deeply saddened with the sad loss of Barry. We were so glad he and his wife could attend our 51st Abraham Lincoln High School reunion at Cape May, New Jersey. In e-mails Barry would write how excited he was to attend this reunion.
    Barry was in my home room class at Lincoln High. Our sympathy and love goes out to his wife and family.
