<div itemprop="description">Barry Everitt <br>February 7, 1945 – December 29, 2016 <br> <br>With sad and heavy hearts we announce the passing of our husband, father, and grandfather William Barry Everitt on Thursday, December 29, 2016 at St. Paul’s Hospital Palliative Care Unit. <br> <br>Barry was born in Newdale, Manitoba to William Howard and Mary Elizabeth Everitt (nee Dmytar). Growing up on a farm made Barry a farm boy all his life. On completion of his Grade XI he attended the University of Manitoba where he made life-long friends and obtained his diploma in Agriculture. In 1968 he was employed by Parrish & Heimbecker Limited to manage their seed plant in Regina, moving to Saskatoon in 1974 to begin the operation of their feed mill. NEW LIFE FEEDS became a well-known name in the industry for producing many types of quality livestock feed. This was the beginning of a fulfilling and satisfying career until his retirement in 2006. He always felt very fortunate to have P&H as his employer and Bill Parrish Sr. as his boss, mentor, and life-long friend. During his career he served with the Saskatchewan division of the feed industry and was a provincial director on the national body-CFIA and later named ANEC. <br> <br>In 1968 he married Linda Christie and together they proudly raised two children, their son William Douglas Tyler and their daughter Tracy Lynne. Barry had a strong work ethic instilled as a child which he passed on to his children believing the “chores” promoted a sense of responsibility and self-worth. A strong family ethic was celebrated with leisure time spent camping and fishing at many parks and lakes in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Alberta. The camping trips saw accommodations progress from a tent, to tent trailer, to a truck camper, a 5th wheel trailer, and finally in 2003 a cottage in Waskesiu where the best of times with family and friends were spent. Fish dinners were frequent as Barry became skilled at catching but especially the art of cleaning our dinner entrees. When it was time to give up water skiing he continued to captain the boat for the watersports the younger set were always keen to do. Other places of travel were to all islands of Hawaii with the favorite being Kauai, a bus trip to Alaska, cruises to the Panama Canal, Catalina Island, and Mexico. Various motor trips were taken throughout Canada and U.S. In 2007 a Park Model was purchased in Yuma, Arizona and the snowbird life began. It is here that our very special “Yuma family” was born and many fun-filled days of laughter were spent. <br> <br>Barry is survived by his wife, Linda; son, Tyler; daughter, Tracy; granddaughters, Ashton and Brooklyn; as well as special nieces and nephews; great nieces, great nephews, and numerous cousins. <br> <br>Love you Always-Miss you Forever <br> <br>The family would like to thank all the caring compassionate staff at the Saskatoon Cancer Centre, Oncology, Radiation, and Pain Clinic Departments for doing their utmost to provide the best in treatment and care. We are also most appreciative for the care and attention by all doctors, staff of the Palliative Care Unit at St. Paul’s Hospital, and the Palliative Home Care Team in Warman. <br> <br>The Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, January 7, 2017 at Park Funeral Home, 311 Third Avenue North with interment to follow in Hillcrest Memorial Gardens. <br> <br>Barry is sadly missed but we know he is in a better place watching over us. He had a long and courageous battle which he faced with optimism, strength, and dignity. <br> <br>In lieu of flowers Memorial donations can be made to the St. Paul’s Hospital Palliative Care Unit Foundation, 1702 20th Street West, Saskatoon, SK S7M 9Z9, the Cancer Centre, 20 Campus Drive, Saskatoon, SK S7N 4H4 or a charity of your choice. <br> <br>To share memories and condolences, visit “Obituaries-Contribute”.
