Herbert M. Barry Sr.
1937 - 2017
AUGUSTA - Herbert M. Barry Sr., 80, passed away peacefully on Monday, Dec. 4, 2017, at Maine General Medical Center, Augusta.
He was born on Oct. 19, 1937, in Augusta, the son of Herbert and
Wilhelmina (Hastings) Barry. After leaving Lee Academy, Herbert served his country in the United States Navy. He later joined Local 716 as a welder and pipe fitter, working around the country.
Herb was a member of Village Lodge #26 of Bowdoinham, American Legion Post 132 of Richmond, and the First Baptist Church of Gardiner.
He enjoyed racing his car, NASCAR, and snowmobiling with his family. He also enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Herb liked teaching his children and nephews about guns, how to hunt, fish gardening, spending time with his dogs and riding his Harley-Davidson, "Bertha." Herbert didn't get to see his family all the time, but he was very sentimental and always remembered birthdays and special occasions.
He especially loved his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Herbert was predeceased by his parents; grandson, Herbert W. Barry; and the mother of his children, Sonja G. Durgin. He is survived by his son, Herb M. Barry Jr., of Florida; daughter, Wendy Lilly and husband Loren Sr., of Richmond; brother, William Barry and wife Belinda, of Florida; sisters, Sandra Sanders and husband Donald, of Augusta; and Sugar "Dorothy" Trask and husband Clyde, of Augusta; grandchildren, Rory Barry and wife Chelsea, Nicole Freeman and husband Dan, and Loren Lilly Jr.; great-grandchildren, Emma and Rory Barry; and his sweet heart, Jane Garceau, also known as his Angel.
Family and friends are invited to visit Thursday, Dec. 7, from 4-7 p.m. at the funeral home. A funeral service will take place Friday, Dec. 8, at noon at the New Maine Veterans Cemetery, Mt. Vernon Rd., Augusta, with military honors. Arrangements are under the care of Kincer Funeral Home, 130 Pleasant St., in Richmond.
