BARRINGER, George Douglas Richard - September 1, 1944 - March 21, 2007. Few people that we cross paths with touch us in such a profound way. For many years George showed us how to face adversity with a positive attitude, determination and a zest for life. He eliminated words like “impossible“ and “can't“ from his vocabulary and taught all of us to do the same. His sense of humour continued to amaze all that knew him. He was the beloved husband and soulmate to Barb and an inspiration to his entire family. George's 38 year struggle with ALS ended on March 21, 2007. Strength was something that we all learned from George - true strength that comes from courage, attitude, outlook and humour - not body. Born and raised in Peterborough, George made a life for himself on the west coast and took special joy in the close relationships with his nieces and nephews. We will all miss the way we laughed with him. A Memorial service will be held at STECKLEY-GOODERHAM Funeral Home (201 Minet's Point Road at Yonge Street) Barrie at 11:00 am on Saturday March 24. A Memorial service will also be held at Westdale United Church, 1509 Sherbrooke Street, Peterborough at 1:00 pm on Tuesday March 27th, followed by interment at Rosemount Memorial Gardens to be at rest with family. The family encourages those wishing to send flowers to consider a donation to ALS research as an alternative. Condolences may be forwarded to the family through 10585961
