Horace Barrie Willis
Barrie grew up on the farm in Kingston and started his formal education in a one-room school just down the road, continuing at Prince of Wales College in Charlottetown, and MacDonald College in Montreal where he received his B.Sc. in 1967.
Barrie was a farmer, arborist, and land developer; an unrelenting optimist who cultivated communities in Cornwall, Hampton and Kingston.
Barrie loved his wife, sons, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and their families. He was an avid golfer, curler and snooker player who competed for the love of the games and the joy of witnessing them played well. He will be missed by all who’ve had the pleasure of knowing him.
His curiosity and penchant for learning extended beyond the classroom and into the everyday. In keeping with his curious nature, Barrie’s remains have been entrusted to the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University for the advancement of medical education and research. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Moncton Hospital’s friendsfoundation.ca or to the QEH are welcome.
Visitation hours are at Belvedere Funeral Home on Friday, 27 October 2017 from 4-7pm. Funeral to follow on Saturday at 10am.
