To my dear Uncle Barry, As I sit down to pen this tribute, my heart aches with the weight of your absence. Words seem feeble in the face of the void you've left behind. How do I capture the essence of a man who was not only my uncle but also my friend, mentor, and partner in crime? From the earliest days of my childhood to the present, you were the architect of so many cherished memories. Our adventures together, whether camping under the stars, casting lines into the water, or navigating rugged terrain in four-wheel drives, were always infused with an extra dose of joy whenever you were around. Who could forget your infamous false teeth, transformed into a growling monster that sent us into fits of laughter? And if by chance you caught us, the inevitable tickling session that followed became a cherished ritual, a testament to your playful spirit and boundless love. Even mundane tasks became opportunities for fun and laughter when you were involved. Being "too sick for school" meant a day spent on the rubbish round with you—a prospect that turned illness into a cherished memory, filled with laughter and joy. But it was our shared love of pranks and jokes that truly defined our bond. From the simple "Wassup" calls that became a daily ritual to the elaborate spoons in the lawn or the Christmas snow sprayed on your truck window, your patience and good humor knew no bounds. As I grew older, our pranks only grew more elaborate, and yet your laughter never wavered. Whether it was the plastic spoons in the lawn or the gladwrap on your rubbish truck, you always took it in stride, your laughter echoing through the air as we revelled in the joy of our shared mischief. Uncle Barry, you were more than just an uncle—you were a friend, a mentor, and a source of endless joy. Though I may never again feel the warmth of your embrace or hear the sound of your laughter, your spirit will live on in the memories we shared and the love that binds us together. Rest in peace, dear uncle, knowing that you will be missed beyond measure, but your legacy of love and laughter will endure for generations to come. Until we meet again, may your spirit soar free. Forever and always in my heart, Ashleigh

What can I say Bazz my heart is broken You were the most beautiful eldest brother anyone could ever wish for. I remember Mum sending me to my room because I wouldn't eat tea and you running up the fish and chip shop with your pocket money and buying me some chips because you felt sorry for me now that's brotherly love ❤️ I will always remember the fun times we shared specially all the parties kirup syrup days laughing our heads off out the farm your love of nature fishing family and camping With you chasing Trev myself and the kids as you were growling like a werewolf and herding us into the ocean like sheep you had all of us terrified even had Trev screaming. I will always hold that night close to my heart as we stood knee deep in the ocean looking up at the stars with our arm around each other and a stubbie in the other telling each other how much we loved each other Iam truly blessed and proud to have had you as my brother... You will be with Mum and Michael now and even though you were the eldest you were always known as Mums baby .I love you and iam missing you so much already it really is awful loosing a sibling specially one like you Bazz a wonderful caring humorous human being you even made up your own african language and would have us laughing for days ..Your going to be so sadly missed by us all Bazz.. Much love to the Pauline Rebecca and the Jessica Dad and all the family and your friends your going to be missed by many RIP Bazza

Bazza, so many fond memories of the old days camping out Bremer with you, Don, Brad and Brendon, some hysterical moments that are permanent memories in my brain. From pissing off bees and running for our lives, great fishing adventures catching some of the biggest grouper I’ve seen to you riding in the back of Don’s HJ45 cruiser on a Matress bouncing through the Bremerbay bush tracks while I road shotgun all the way from Drage beach to the nursing station in Bremer. The whole way yelling out “ that better be a fucking snake but Noakesy” You were a top bloke, loved a good time and enjoyed the simple pleasures in life. May you RIP Baz, my condolences to all the family. Stick Bite.
