Passed away peacefully at his home early on Sunday morning, 27th of May 2007.

He was so brave and fought cancer with every bit of effort he could find for four years. Right up until the Saturday evening prior was he sitting in his chair with all his children around him.

Rest in peace old friend.

  1. Me and Barry had a great relationship. He was one of the good “old guys” and we shared many a conversation and c64 disk swap. Legend! Will always remeber him, as will many of my friends in my town as a result of his complete dedication to C64 swapping scene. I often think of him with find memories. Proud to own his Amiga!

  4. got in touch with him at the end of the 90’s early 00’s when I discovered there still was a c64 scene, found his address and started snail swapping with him a lot.. He was so kind copying for me all the wares I asked for and I remember his long notes tellin me all his stories about c64 golden years, he was a real gentleman to me. lost contact with him after some years to found years later has passed away, I’m very sad.
    thanks again DERBY RAM
