John R. “Jack” Barry, 70 of East Boothbay, Maine, passed away on February 3, 2020 with loving family after a brief battle with cancer.

Jack’s greatest love was his family and he always went above and beyond. He will be greatly missed by all. He left behind the love of his life, Cynthia after over 50 years of marriage, his two daughters, Sandra Barry & Jennifer Barry-Sledge, his son-in-law Matthew Sledge, his 4 grandchildren Cody, Zach, Meg & Will. His siblings Katherine Casey, Susan and Don Lang, Patricia and Jon Picard and Marry Barry, sister-in-law Claudia Novak and Les Novak, Deborah Hodgdon and Jonathan Hodgdon, brother-in-law Don Oakman and Michelle Oakman among many loving nieces, nephews and cousins, including the community of Boothbay.

He was born at the Chelsea Naval Base, Chelsea, MA. on September 29, 1949 to Robert Barry and Margery Barry. He graduated from Norwell High School and joined the Navy Reserves shortly after. Upon getting married he and his family moved to Maine to start a new life on the coast.

For many years Jack ran Boothbay Marine, a local family boatyard formerly known as the Rice Brothers Co. Shipyard that dates back to 1903. Jack ran the boatyard with his brother-in-law Don Oakman. He was a skilled builder and was never afraid to share his knowledge with anyone who needed it. He was a true ‘Jack of all trades’. For the last 10 years, he has continued with his love of boat building, working for his son-in-law at Samoset Boatworks.

Jack was a third-generation firefighter, the Assistant Fire Chief of Boothbay and worked part-time for Boothbay Water Dept. for over 20 years. Jack enjoyed being a part of the Fire Department and serving the local community for over 40 years. His continuous dedication to the fire department was one of his greatest loves and he was a mentor to many young up and coming firefighters.

A funeral service will be held at Hall’s Funeral Home on Sunday, February 9, 2020 from 2-4pm. Please visit with family from 2-3pm, then sharing of stories and celebration of Jack’s life from 3-4pm. There will be a private family service in the Spring.

In Lieu of flowers, please donate to the Boothbay Fire Department,
Po Box 304, Boothbay, Maine 04537

So sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. He was a good neighbor. We enjoyed our chats with him when he stopped by on his way down Spruce. Thinking of the Barry family during this time.

A sad time for all of who knew Jack. The past year he fought a valiant and brave fight, enjoyed one last loving family Christmas before life finally overtook his strength. He shared his life with a wonderful family of high values and caring neighborliness. We have been neighbors for thirty-one years and his passing leaves a hole in our hearts that will never be filled. But we will be fortified by the memories of his caring way of life, worrying more about others than himself. That is guidance to all of us to follow.
So, God Bless you Jack. Bon Voyage. You have left us great memories of a great person.

We are so sorry to hear of Jacks passing. He certainly was a wonderful man who would help you in any way he could. His knowledge and stories will be sorely missed. His take charge attitude kept our little neighborhood on Lincoln Street and Spruce Drive humming along, as he would deal with downed trees and road maintenance, often single handedly. You have left us way too early. Rest In Peace Jack.
