    I’m not too good at this sort of thing, but I might as well leave an edited copy of what I said on the official funeral provider website:

    “I knew Barry primarily through science fiction fandom, and although he’s been sick for more years than even a handful of people would tolerate, he had a sense of humor and energy that belied his illness, especially if you ran into him in person as I did when he was working pre-reg at Capricon a few years ago; he’ll be greatly missed.”
