    Barry was a kind, generous soul. He always selflessly helped others and had a great sense of humor. Truly a good human being has left this world and our lives are a little more drab without him. Now he can watch over us from Heaven. Rest In Peace, Barry. My sincerest condolences to Lucy and their family.

    I met Barry and his brother Bruce Schwartz in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn NY.
    When our friendships grew, we had a lengthy friendship that lasted the tides of time. Through Barry’s marriage to his wife Lucy, and my marriage to my wife, our friendship grew even further. We spent alot of time together as couples. When my wife and I purchased our home, Barry & Lucy visited our home the very first morning with breakfast for all of us. Something that I won’t ever forget. I will miss Barry Schwartz and our friendship we had together. My condolences to the Schwartz family may he rest in peace. With love, Jerry Kessler
