Dr. Michael Barry was a sensitive, brilliant and compassionate physician whose life was cut short by Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS). This disease has no cure and results in a slow debilitating death. Those afflicted by this disease slowly become prisoners in their own bodies.
Despite this devastating illness, Michael and his family have been a beacon of light for our community. His positive attitude, sense of humor and love for life was an inspiration to us all. His family's strength, love, commitment and endurance were amazing to witness.
All were blessed to have known him, as he was a mentor to us all. Our community remembers Dr. Michael Barry.
Aequanimitas! (Michael's favorite word- always remain calm in the raging storm)
