On the 26th of September 2021, Richard Gavin Barry passed away suddenly. He died at the age of 58.
Barry is survived by his mother, Mary Ellen Barry, of Quincy, his sister, Jill of Fort Myers, Florida, his Wife, Hope (Connolly), and his two children, John (Jake) William and Teagan Rose.
Rick was welcomed into the world on August 23, 1963, in Quincy, Massachusetts. He attended and graduated from the Thayer Academy, Syracuse University, and the New England School of Law.
Rick was a practicing criminal defense attorney on the Cape for many years. He was involved in many local public service committees and associations.
On 1999, Sept. 25th, Barry led Hope Connolly to the aisle, and they had two beautiful children, Jake, 21, and Teagan, 17, whom they raised in Cotuit, the town they love so much.
He chose fisherman as a profession because he loved nothing more than being on the water with his family and friends.
