September 1, 1962 – May 30, 2010
We did not see you close your eyes
Or hear your last faint sigh
We only heard that you were gone
Too late to say good-byeBarry was taken from us suddenly on his way home to Terrace, BC after attending his daughter’s high school graduation in Aldergrove, BC. Barry was born in Creston, BC and leaves behind his wife, Susan; daughter, Rebecca (Boo); sons, Colton and Connor; his mother and father, Dale and Marlene Samuelson of Aldergrove; sister, Bonnie (Stan) Poznekoff of Abbotsford, BC; brother, Tim Samuelson of Chilliwack, BC; and his extended family of Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces, Nephews, and his beloved in-laws.
Memorial Services were held at the Pentecostal Assembly in Terrace, BC on June 4, 2010, officiated by his firefighting-friend/Minister, Lowell Holmquist. Barry was honored by both the Terrace Fire Department and Abbotsford Fire Department.
The family would like to express their deepest thanks to the Terrace Fire Department, in particular Chief Peter Weeber for the support and assistance they’ve provided through this difficult time.
They would also like to thank our Terrace community for the overwhelming support and recognition that has been shown since this tragedy occurred.
Where was the fire Barry?
We know you were always ready to “go”, but why now?
