Barry Van Horne Obituary

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Barry Van Horne on December 9, 2023 at the age of 83. Beloved husband of 61 years to Lynda. Loving father of Alan (Donna) Van Horne. Much loved Poppa to Taylor, Lauren and Sarah. Cherished brother of Karen Opheim and uncle to Cheryl (Shane), Debbie (Brent), Darren (Jari) and Suzanne (Andrew). and great uncle to Delaney, Dayne, Colbe, Piper, Aevynn, Torynn and Hadley. He will be sadly missed by best friend and adopted brother, Jim Philp (Bonnie) and daughters Jennifer and Amy.   

Barry proudly worked at Vale (INCO) for over 30 years retiring in 1993. Barry enjoyed woodworking and made countless pieces of furniture and a wide variety of other items. He also enjoyed doing the larger carpentry projects like framing houses and home renovations. He built his own workshop in which he spent many hours building and tinkering. He was especially proud of the camp he built on the bush lot near Mindemoya. Many summers were spent entertaining family and friends along with hosting a number of deer hunts.

The family wishes to thank Todd and the staff at Walden Family Drugstore for being much more than just a pharmacy. A special thank you for the care and assistance provided by Kate, Julie,  Lindsay and all the staff at Bayshore. Thank you also to the nurses, doctors and support staff on 6 South at Health Sciences North.

In keeping with Barry’s wishes there was no funeral service. For those that knew Barry please honour him by remembering the times spent with him over the years.
