    We regret to advise of the death of Sapper Calvin Douglas Barry (Ret’d) of Moose Jaw, SK on 17 July 2019 at the age of 91 years. A native of Tuxford SK, he lied about his age to enlist in the Royal Canadian Engineers near the end of the Second World War. He never saw any action, however, as someone reported him before he could be sent overseas.

    After the war Cal was a successful entrepreneur in the farming industry and a man who never took no for an answer. He was a member of the Moose Jaw Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.

    Cal’s Farewell Party will be held on 11 May at 12:00 p.m. in the Moose Jaw Wildlife Centre. Lunch will be provided and everyone is welcome to bring and share stories of Cal. In lieu of flowers, donations in Calvin’s name may be made to the WaWa Patient Travel Fund.   Online condolences can be sent to the Funeral Home.  [dcSep19gd} [ zsd, zsp]
