Tom will be remembered fondly by his crazy sense of humor which not everyone could comprehend, but it would make you smile. His favorite movie was the “Quiet Man” that he must have watched over 1,000 times, thus was able to repeat every line. He was an avid NY Yankee fan and never missed a game. His favorite music group was the “Eagles” and even at times it would bring tears to his eyes. Tom often left sticky notes around the house with words of wisdom — he was deep. His one request was for his cremains be put into a large hour glass so that each time you turned it, he would be “working.” This showed his original way of thinking
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Mr. Barry’s memory may be made to the Ridgebury Congregational Church, 605 Ridgebury Rd.; Ridgefield, CT 06877.
