Condolence from Richard & Diane DiVincenzo on August 3rd, 2015 3:55 pm

Our deepest sympathy you are in our prayers. I’m here if you need someone to talk to or just to give you extra hugs for support.

Condolence from Paul and Marie Desautels on August 3rd, 2015 6:38 pm

I (Paul) remember Barry as a wonderful young teen, a member of St. Mary Youth Group. He was dedicated to the church and one year gave me a deck of UNO cards. When I said I didn’t know how to play Barry told me not to be home Sunday afternoon and he, along with almost a dozen Youth Group members arrived. This became a tradition and every Sunday for several years saw teens in my apartment, playing UNO, watching football, talking and planning activities. My wife had Barry as a student at St. Mary School. I will never forget the look on his face when, as a teen, I told him I had grown up across the street from his mother. Barry will always be remembered as a person who had a ready smile for everyone and who can’t be remembered to say a bad word against another person (basketball refs excluded). He was a good person and will be fondly and lovingly in our memories.

Condolence from Armand Houle on August 3rd, 2015 7:15 pm

Hugs and love to you all. I have so many memories of my cousin having grown up just down the street from eachother. I will cherish them; playing ghost tag, rock ’em sock ’em robots, “luddy cut” and the countless August family reunions. Rest in Peace Barry, we love you.

Condolence from Jamie and Debra Heath on August 4th, 2015 7:29 am

Deb and I offer our sincere condolences to Barry’s wife, children, his entire family and all of his friends.

Condolence from George White on August 4th, 2015 8:41 am

Very sorry for your loss. It’ll be a loss realized by many. I worked with Barry for the past year and a half, sat across from him in my cubical and enjoyed our conversations about hunting and outdoors (still have the pic he sent me on my phone of last years dear 🙂 ). I admire and respect Barry for his work ethic but most of all for his love and dedication to his family. Sitting here looking at a clipping of an article about his son and family pics says it all. He once told me he couldn’t imagine a life without family. I’ll remember him as a man’s man, responsible, ready to assist and share his knowledge, someone who will tell you how it is in a way that was receptive and appreciated.
Please find comfort in this time of need.

Condolence from Michael W. Ravenelle on August 4th, 2015 9:51 am

Barry left us way too soon. He struggled throughout his life with medical issues and displayed enormous courage and resiliency. We can all learn a lesson from his great strength of character. Our warmest sympathies to the entire Bellerose family, whom we miss so much. R.I.P. Cuz.
Mike, Kasey and Lindsay

Condolence from Denise Heath on August 4th, 2015 11:39 am

Condolence from Jim n Cathy Edwards on August 4th, 2015 1:50 pm

To the entire Bellerose family, our deepest and most sincere condolences for you loss of the beloved son, brother, cousin and friend.

Condolence from Michele & Brian Greene on August 4th, 2015 1:54 pm

So saddened by the news of Barry’s passing. He was such a kind soul. Wishing each of you healing thoughts and prayers. Barry has joined our family members who have passed before us. He is happy & healthy once again. I am confident that meme & pepe, auntie Jean and my mom as well as many others were there to greet him.

Condolence from Roy Rossi on August 4th, 2015 3:00 pm

I learned from Barry. He was intelligent. He was always willing to help. He cared. Saying he will be missed professionally and personally here at the office is true but a large understatement. Because of his knowledge and teamwork, we accomplished a great deal.

He was proud of his family, yet in a humble way. His family should know from an outside perspective we could all see that he took great joy and comfort from his family and that was where his core was.

Condolence from robert surprenant on August 4th, 2015 3:23 pm

normand and Gloria, so sorry for youre lost, had no idea, cousin bob s.

Condolence from Bill Iacovino on August 4th, 2015 9:12 pm

My deepest sympathy to Barry’s family during this sad time. In the short time that I worked with Barry, he shared so much of his CVS knowledge along with his family values. His son’s made him so proud, keep up the great work Zachary and Matthew. Your father wanted the best education for both of you. The memories you all have created will keep him in your hearts.

Condolence from Wesley Saurette on August 5th, 2015 8:42 am

I worked with Barry the whole time he was at CVS. I will deeply miss him. His personality at work was iron wrapped in velvet. I mean he was always professional and willing to help but never willing to compromise on things that mattered. Then, when we talked of family, you saw the real Barry. So caring of his wife and sons. So proud of the men his sons were becoming. I mourn for your loss.

Condolence from Pete & Audrey Place on August 5th, 2015 9:28 am

My thoughts and Prayers are with you in this difficult time. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted….Barry will always be missed. Peter Place

Condolence’s and prayers for the Bellerose family.

Condolence from Lucas Traver on August 5th, 2015 11:36 am

I worked with Barry when I first started with CVS and he taught me a lot right of the bat which helped shape me into the man I am today. I will cherish the time we got to work together throughout. When it wasn’t about work it was about his sons or about our game rooms and adding to them. I’m going to miss working, talking, and learning from him, my thoughts and prayers to his family.

Condolence from Marie Burgess on August 5th, 2015 3:19 pm

Tim and I are so very sorry for your loss. Take care…

Condolence from Marilyn Gale on August 5th, 2015 6:53 pm

Condolence from Bonnie O’Brien on August 5th, 2015 7:12 pm

Condolence from Teresa Reilly on August 6th, 2015 9:58 am

Amy, Zach & Matt,
Barry and I worked together at CVS. It was apparent that Barry’s greatest joy was his family. He spoke highly of each of you all the time. You made him proud and while you may not see him any longer, know that he continues to smile with pride as you continue to success with your futures. Barry touched our lives here at CVS. He was a team player and always enjoyable to work with. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you get through this difficult time.

Norm & Gloria, Lynda and I are so sorry! Our love and prayers go out to you. I have spent time over the past few days remembering family times that included Barry. Can’t remember a single one where he was not smiling and enjoying life no matter the challenges. Sad for us but I can only imagine the smile he has now.

Condolence from Brian Renaud on August 6th, 2015 7:19 pm

Amy and family,
My prayers are with you and your family. I remember you all so well and I know this must be a very difficult time. I think of you often and was so sorry to hear this sad news. My sincere condolences to you all.


Condolence from Joshua Gates on August 7th, 2015 8:06 pm

I am shocked as is everyone else with Barry’s passing. I first met Barry years ago when he was with Staples. I clicked with him instantly because of his sense of humor and passion to do the right thing. I remember him as very kind hearted individual that always spoke of a work life balance which was heavily driven for the love of his family. At the time I didn’t fully understand stand his concept until now, married with 2 boys myself I can see where he was coming from. I recently got back in touch with Barry and just can’t believe this. I will miss you buddy. Amy, Matt and Zach, you are all in my thoughts.

Condolence from Cindy and Dave Manly on August 8th, 2015 11:00 am

Amy-Dave and I send our heartfelt condolences to you, Zachary, Mathew and the rest of your family. We remember when you, Barry and the boys came to Chicago and stayed with us several years ago and how much we enjoyed your visit. We will continue to keep you all in our prayers.

Condolence from bro on August 11th, 2015 12:50 pm

I’ll miss you bro………..

Condolence from Lisa & Steve Shannon on August 11th, 2015 5:03 pm

Brian and family – so sorry for the loss of your brother. Our thoughts are with all of you.

Lisa, Steve, Isabella and Sophia Shannon

Condolence from Debra Snyder-Robillard on August 18th, 2015 7:41 am

Heartfelt condolences to you and your family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Barry will live on in your hearts.

Condolence from Robin Lofquist on August 18th, 2015 10:28 am

I was so saddened to read of Barry’s tragic death. Although you won’t recognize my name, I worked at Staples with Barry, where we commiserated over the commute from the Quiet Corner. I was always impressed with Barry’s professionalism and competence.

The other thing we shared was our intense pride in our children; Zachary and my daughter, Isabelle, shared the Patrick Wood prize in 2008, when they were about to start their careers at Pomfret School. Your father positively sparkled when he talked about you, Zach, and I know your character and accomplishments filled him with happiness.

This is a terrible blow, and nothing can make that OK, But I’m including a link to a poem that provided some comfort in my own time of loss.


Sincerest condolences,
Robin Lofquist
