A real shocker. So sorry to hear this. Condolences to his family. He will be greatly missed by many.
Prayers out to Cora and the whole family. We are so sorry for your loss of such a great man. He was so nice to share his knowledge with the rest of us here on the forum! RIP Barry!
Barry was a great fellow. His wife, Cora, is wonderful. My deepest sympathies go out to her, Barry’s family, and all their friends.
Our lives are richer because of Barry’s friendship and knowledge. Our lives are diminished by his loss. However, he will not be forgotten.
His invaluable knowledge and experience with all things DCS helped me enjoy this hobby more.
And it seemed he was always willing to give helpful advice to those that asked, he will be greatly missed.
My deepest condolences to Barry's family and friends.
Very sorry and shocked to learn about the passing of Barry. He was truly a great guy and helpful to so many here. My thoughts and prayers to his wife, family and friends.
My condolences to all. We never met, but he was gracious with his advice, including a couple of personal responses to me.
Sad news indeed
Fond memories are what we have to remember Barry. My most heartfelt condolences & prayers to his friends and family. He will be missed on this forum and by those who knew him personally God bless.
Ah Crap. I'll post something better when I get myself back together. It is a shocking and very tragic loss. WOW>
I just read this and I couldn't believe it. Condolences to Cora and the family.
Nothing else I can add but my prayers for his family.
Condolences to the family of our own beloved DCS Guru. RIP good friend.
I'm shocked and saddened. I never met Barry in person, but he reached out to personally help me via this forum more than once. He was a friend to so many. My deepest condolences to his family.
This is shocking and very sad news. I met Barry on a couple of occasions and attended one of his DCS user group meetings. He was a real gentleman and the DCS guru. He was incredibly helpful to those who asked for his assistance and was passionate about our hobby. One of the true icons of our hobby has passed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Cora and the rest of his family.
A shock to hear this news. Prayers to his family from my wife and I...........Paul.
Barry has been thoughtful and helpful to so many people. My prayers are with Barry and his family.
I am very shocked and saddened to hear of Barry's passing. Thank you Jim for informing us.
I always made sure to read any posts Barry had, as he was in fact, the go-to man for DCS problems. Frequently his posts answered questions I had and had not yet posted, which save me and many others invaluable time and effort troubleshooting DCS issues. I agree with everyone else: He WILL be greatly missed!
Rest in Peace, Barry, knowing that you helped a great many of us become more comfortable with technology in general and DCS in particular.
Thank you for all you did.

I'm shocked. I can't believe it. I have known him for many years. My heartfelt condolences to his family.
Its always to soon when they go.I send my condolences to all his friends and family.
So sad to hear this. My condolences to his family. He will be missed by all of us.
It was obvious that Barry had a real passion for this hobby and helping those who asked. At least his memory will live on in his books and other publications.
I never met him but I'm sure he was a true gentleman. Condolences to his wife, family, and friends.
Yes, this is a very sad message to read, he was always friendly on the forum, a Genius on the MTH DCS System, and a true ambassador of the hobby. May the Lord be with his family and friends. Thank you for letting us know.
I'm very saddened to hear about the loss of Barry. He always impressed me with his knowledge, kindness, and willingness to help folks here on the OGR Forum. Although I never met him personally, I will miss him. He was a great contributor to our hobby. My condolences to his wife and family.
A great and tragic loss to the DCS community. Barry was unmatched.
My condolences to his family.
I am glad to have known him and will treasure his books all the more.
Wow! What a shock. I am saddened to hear of his passing. I didn’t know him well but I met him at York once when I sold him a PS3 electro coupler from a steam kit I installed. He helped a lot of folks on this forum. My sincerest condolences to his family and friends. Definitely, a big loss to DCS enthusiasts and our hobby in general.
What a loss. Barry was not only "Mr DCS", he was also an active member of the TCA and the Southern Div.. We will miss him. He helped so many folks in our hobby.
RIP Barry! Thoughts and prayers to Cora and the family.
Man..oh..man...what a loss!!! At last York he and a couple of other gents were "reprogramming" ( I think) MTH stuff FOR FREE ON HIS OWN TIME over near the black hall. I spoke to him a bit, what a gracious man. May his family be consoled (at least somewhat) by knowing he did good deeds for us UNTECH savvy folks.
Sorry to hear this. Yes definitely a shock. He will be missed. My best memory was the hour long phone call troubleshooting my issue and him walking me though it. Definitely will be missed. Condolences to his family.
I pray for his family and friends remember the good times they had with him.
Terrible news. I did not know Barry, but I did post a couple questions about buying my first MTH engine and he was very helpful. Sounds like that was his nature. In response, I just bought had my first MTH/DCS engine delivered Friday (from the OP, no less) and received Barry's book yesterday. I'm going to read it on vacation next week and was planning to shoot Barry a note after I had read it. Condolences to all who knew him.
I never met Barry anywhere but on the forum, he was always ready to debunk the DCS myths and help get folks get on the right path. I'll always remember he never missed an opportunity to hawk his book and that I will miss!
Condolences to his family and friends.
Such sad news. My condolences to his family.
I just bought a steam engine from barry two weeks ago here on the forum. WOW this is shocking and very sad news. my deepest sympathies go out to his family. by owning one of his engines I now have a small piece of his legacy so to speak. the dcs world lost a good man.
Very sad news, my condolences to his family and friends. That comes out of left field for sure!
This shocked alot of us. God bless his family and thank you Mr. DCS
Rest in peace Barry! You will sorely be missed...........
He will sorely be missed. His books are his legacy. The way he interacted to everyone on this Forum is irreplaceable. My sincerest condolences to his family.
What a shocker! Rest In Peace.
He was a true believer in DCS and was always willing to help anyone that had an issue with it. The hobby has just lost another great guy.
Very sad news. My sincere condolences to Barry's family and friends.
