Denis S. Barry was a man with a most generous heart

November 2014

For more than ten years, he was a devoted volunteer with the

Marty Lyons Foundation, serving as a member of their Board of Directors. Denis gave of himself in a most unselfish way. Of the many life lessons he taught those around him, perhaps the most important one was suggesting we make room in our lives to help others who are less fortunate.

When Denis passed away in December of 2004, his family and friends vowed to keep his name alive by founding the Denis S. Barry Foundation. Its mission is to support families who need financial assistance in order to provide a proper burial for a child who has died as a result of their illness. The Foundation partners exclusively with the Marty Lyons Foundation to help wish families in their time of need.

The Denis S. Barry Foundation is supported by fundraisers that the organization holds throughout the year. Their annual golf outing is scheduled for June 2015. For more information about this event or the Foundation in general, please visit their website ( or call Warren Larkin at (347) 386-6172.

We would like to honor Denis, his family and friends and the Foundation that bears his name by remembering what a great man he was and to be thankful for being their partner.
