Obituary For Barry Thomas Ambrose

Barry was a lifelong resident of Peabody and spent many years working in Essex and Gloucester.

Barry was an Assistant Scout Master for Troop 3, Manchester, and a great source of laughter for his nephew.

  • Barry was a treasure!! I worked with him in supporting Troop 3, and when we both moved on (as our sons aged) I really missed our working together! He was always thoughtful, friendly, curious, and conscientious.... a great role model in the Troop and the community.

  • Liz and family, there aren't enough words that can be said about his integrity, kindness, and generosity, that Barry showed to everyone. To his children, The example that he set made our world a better place to be and I hope that you remember you will always be with you. I no longer live on the North Shore but think of him quite often and the jokes that we used to tell, most that were his and they were always funny, that made it so much fun to be with him. He is one of the worlds best examples of dedication hard work, and placing his priorities where they belong. I will never forget him and I hope he rest in peace. Our world needs many more people like him.

  • Dear Liz, Thomas and Ashley, Please accept my deepest sympathy on the death of Barry. He was a great neighbor and always so helpful. May he rest in peace. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Saddened to read of Barry's passing. Remember him and younger brother Jack as they grew up next door. Sincere sympathy to the family. Dona and Heather McDuff (Loris Rd. neighbors)

  • Oh, Liz, we are so sorry to learn of Barry's passing. What memory to share of the many? Suffice it to say that Barry and George are now swapping insults, again, and the air is "blue", at the great marina in heaven! The world is a little less bright. We will miss him. Fondly, Sue Lufkin for the Essex Marina crew

  • I am so sorry to hear of Barry's passing. I worked with him at NutraMax in Gloucester back in the day. He was always so kind and funny, and never had a bad thing to say about anyone. My heart goes out to his family and loved ones, and hope the memories bring you comfort. <3
