M & L Vretenar

I am so sorry to hear about Barry. I have fond memories of Barry strapping on his goalie gear, coming out to the crescent and letting the kids take some shots at him. The excitement we had when a “real goalie” came out to play was immeasurable.

He commanded a room with his story telling and I was always drawn to him when he spoke. He will be deeply missed by all that knew him.

My entire family is thinking of all you.
