Joanne and Michael, There are no words to express the grief upon learning about Barry. He was a good soul and possessed a pleasant, welcoming smile. The Eisen boys added so much life to Browning Road not matched by anyone else. My heart breaks for all of you. May his memory be a blessing to all.

I am going to miss my big brother. He had been around my whole life and always made a point of showing up when it was important. I remember the adventures we would go on when we were together. He loved to argue and probably took to many risks in life. He never expected to be around this long. He was a veteran and teacher. He so loved his kids as he would call his students and he was very proud of them all. He, also, loved his lifelong friend and partner, Roberta and his fur babies. He loved to argue but he was a loyal friend. You will be missed, Barry! Love you always, your sister, Linda

Deepest condolences to Barry\'s family and friends. My late husband Louis and I loved Barry very much. He, along with his brothers, was an honorary nephew of ours. We were extremely proud of him. His life ended too soon; he still had so much to give to the world. His brilliance, generosity, and quick wit will always be remembered fondly and with love. May Perpetual Light shine upon him.
