Arthur loved feeding, helping, and watching his birds daily. He even manufactured wild bird feeders in his career. It became a passion. He always loved spreading this joy to others and his family.

Arthur Barry was a wonderful father, devoted husband and present grandfather or “poppi” as he was lovingly referred to. He was kind, caring, compassionate, empathetic, and selfless. He was a man of many interests and passions including classic rock music, vintage victrolas and music machines, cycling, rug hooking, playing the drums, reading, and bird feeding to name a few. He loved driving to eastern Love Island and above all else he loved spending time with his family. Art was a business owner, teacher and SEIT provider. He impacted each person who knew him and truly was a gentle soul. He was so loved and will be so dearly missed by his wife Cynthia, daughter Danielle, son in law Dave, granddaughter Maya and his sister Helene.

I’ve known Arthur for 20 plus years. A piece of me has died today with his passing. He was more than a true friend. Arthur welcomed me into his family and made me feel as a part of it and I saw him as family as well. He was the most caring, compassionate and selfless man I’ve ever known. My heart is broken as I will greatly miss him. Words cannot express the sorrow and grief. I send the family all my love and prayers. Tanchumin.

I was Art’s roommate for four years at University of South Florida from 69-73. He was my best friend, and extremely caring, fun, and enjoyable to be around.
We lost touch after college due mainly to geography, I live in Florida. He did stay in touch, reaching out to me in 2012 when he found out about a relapse and major depression I sufferred from. He also was friends with my brother Gary, who passed away in 2022. He offered condolonces to me at that time.
Art never talked much about himself, cause he cared so much about his family and friends. He truly was one of a kind. Even though we became distant, I always felt his caring spirit in my life, and regret now, I did not contact him more.
God bless him Art, and one day we will be together again in heaven!

Friends ALLWAYS!
