    Default Has Barry died or have I misunderstood?

    I went to Barry's Facebook page to see what was up because I haven't seen him around for a while...and from what I read, I suspect that he has died.

    Death would be easier to handle if we were allowed to say goodbye.

    "The police had to be called to break into his home and found Steven dead at the bottom of his stairs. If anyone has been in some of the little palaces in the Dingle you will know just how steep their stairs are. Steven had health issues but at the moment the reason for his fall is purely speculation."

    I experienced, rather WE did, in London, that Barry was prone to seizures.
    At the top of a stairase, or even unattended, these things can be fatal.

    Barryb was a good friend to us, a UK patriot (served in one of the armed services thereof), and if this is true will be sorely missed.

    We three (My family) are glad to have me him and interacted with him.

    He was cheerful, interactive, and full of valuable information.

    Suzie, we grieve with you, though halfway around the world.

    RIP, sailor.

    I'm in no good shape and won't be for the rest of the day...or the week, or even the month.

    He was a nice and funny man with a good sense of humour and I hope he didn't suffer too much in the way that he died. I suspect that he already suffered some in the way that he lived.

    Please don't let this be true. This is devastating to me, you see, Barry is my friend.

    Doesn't Betsy live in that city? Maybe we could send flowers?

    All week I'd been thinking that Barry hadn't checked in in awhile. Just yesterday I checked his HT posting record and saw that his last post was 11/21, I think. So many other HTers have gone longer periods of time between posts plus it's the holidays so I didn't think too much about it.

    Oh man...this is just so sad. Barry was HT ohana and quite a character. I think he was planning another trip to Hawaii.

    RIP, Barry. You made me laugh.

    ETA: Just rechecked Barry's posting history. His last HT post was 11/20. He passed away 11/21. I so hope it was quick and painless.

    I've been holding off posting here, hoping that someone would come in and debunk it, say it was just a mistake, just a misunderstanding. Unfortunately it looks like that's not the case. This is very sad news. Peace to him and to everyone affected by his loss.

    I too had just checked a couple of days ago. Thank you Susie for letting us know. This is such sad news about Barry. I wonder if his family knows about his participation in HT so they can check here for our condolences.
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    This was quite a shock to come here and see this. Good-bye, Barry. Thank you for all you shared. You will be missed.

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    PZ, is this the first HT death that you know of? I ask because it's so interesting to me that we can feel such sorrow for someone most of us have never met irl. During the old newsgroup days, a woman who participated in one of the same (non-Hawaii) groups as I, died. I didn't interact with her much, if at all, while others did. Still, I knew her name and read her posts. The sorrow over losing a cyber-persona was palpable. The entire group mourned her loss much as we are doing for Barry.

    Holy crap (if you'll all forgive my expression of astonishment)!

    I'm glad that Kaonohi got to meet him in person; he seemed to be such a fascinating person. Barry sent me a nice message at the time that expressed his joy in meeting Kaonohi; that tiny message seems a little more special now.

    Aloha `oe.

    IIRC, Barry and Tatt were supposed to meet up in England a couple of months ago. That didn't happen as Tatt got sick and had to cancel his trip.
