It is with deep sadness that we share the passing of Barrie Hubert Beech in his 82nd year.

Barrie was many things, to many people.  He shared his expertise, knowledge and experiences with all those that asked, in both business and in personal matters.  He was an entrepreneur and was always willing to lend a helping hand and became a mentor to many.

Barrie lived a full and generous life, and enriched the lives of those he left behind.

Predeceased by his parents Hubert and Elaine Beech, his son Rick and his brother Glenn.  Survived by his partner of many years Cathleen (Cathy) Davison, his two sisters Gloria and Sally, his children Rob, Wendy, Kim and Mark, and his many cousins in the United States and Ontario.
