Ted Preston penned,

Well said, Gaylene. I met him a few times recently in Brunswick Heads (near Byron Bay). As you know, our last encounter was in September, when I delivered to him a copy of ‘Gaylene’s Take’. He was so pleased to think you’d give him an advance copy and was moved by your comments on the cover. I spent several hours with him at the Mullumbimby fair where he bought his veggies every week. He needed a hand to get all his paraphernalia sorted, ie wheelchair stuff, but then sashayed through the fair site like a juggernaut, stopping at, or being stopped at, almost every stall enquiring after peoples’ health, families, and so on. He introduced me as his ‘son from New Zealand’, a mantle I proudly wore while accompanying this super-generous force of nature. Vale TowBar.

Sorry to hear this, Gaylene. Tony and I knew each other well in Sydney – met on some set or location and hit it off instantly. His ‘resting’ job was in hospitality and he got me working with him on a TV series idea called ‘The Waiting Game’, in which freelance waiters working for a contract caterer were all waiting for their real vocations to materialize. But that was before he went on the wagon. We would laugh, in later times, about how when he’d had a few he’d ring me up at ungodly hours to wax lyrical about what I had written but when he was sober, with a hangover I rationalized, he hated it. So of course it came to nothing. A good idea, but.

Gisela Conechado penned,

Lost a dear friend yesterday Dear Barry, Georgia told me that you have left your earthly body. I am sad to know you have passed and sorry that I wasn’t there to say goodbye. Thank you for your warm friendship. Thank you for the dancing. Thank you for your long service to humanity and environmental conservation. Thank you for the great acting over a long career. Thanks for being a great role model for loving kindness for animals, humanity, and life itself. I hope your spirit is peaceful after your long journey with suffering in the physical body. To Tony’s family and a wide circle of friends, colleagues, and fellow activists, much love to you all as we grieve the passing of this beautiful human. Tony Barry 1941-2022

Vale Tony Barry, veteran Australian actor and, closer to home, Dad’s brother. It’s hard to make a living out of acting but Tony did it consistently for 50 years, with a body of work spanning nearly 60 films and over 45 TV series. Among them are roles in Newsfront, Australia, The Dismissal, Time of our Lives, Shame, Paper Giants (The Birth of Cleo magazine), Scales of Justice, The Odd Angry Shot, and Little Boy Lost. From poignant fatherly characters to the steeliest criminal or stern policeman, he could play them all. He also committed a lot of hours over many years to volunteer work and was indefatigable in reaching out to help people. Uncle Tony lived a big life. Like the roles he played, he gave life his all.

Tony Barry was one of the kindest men I’ve ever met. As a kid, he always remembered my name and would call me over to talk every night before dinner when he’d come to snoring Waters. He would tell me about music and performing and acting and tell me I could do it too. I will always remember being 10 and him bringing me on the stage to sing Dance all around the world with him. I can only imagine how bright a light he would have been within the entire BLERTA family and extended community and I feel lucky to have known him even a little bit. Sending the most love possible to all of my family, all my family friends, and everyone who knew Tony. I love you all. Rest In Peace
