WATSON, Gordon “Barry”
It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my beloved husband, best friend and soulmate, Barry, on Friday morning, October 29th, 2010 at Maple Ridge. Born April 26th, 1938 in Penticton He received his schooling there and later Prince George. He is survived by his wife Tricia, sister-in-law, Pam Macgregor (Neil) and nephew, nieces and cousins. From a teenager, he was involved in hot rods and will always be remembered for his 1950 purple Merc. He was a pilot holding a Class 1 Instructor’s rating and worked in the aviation industry all his life as the owner of a flying school in Penticton, a DC3 pilot in the Arctic and later as an air traffic controller in Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the B.C. Lung Association would be appreciated. A Celebration of Barry’s life will be held at Fraserview Village Hall, 22610 – 116th Ave., Maple Ridge on Sunday, November 14th at 1:00 P.M.
