Paying Tribute to Barry S Waddell

To everyone who may have not heard the news, our dear beloved Barry S Waddell has passed on following a tragic car accident.

Funeral plans are still being arranged, and any updates regarding locations and times will be posted here.

As you are all aware,  Barry is father to Sir  L Waddell, Taisha Richards, Ross Richards and the loving partner of Francine Richards. What has happened is tragic & painful for us all but it’s in times like this our faith is tested. Our Heavenly Father makes no mistakes & has gifted us with Barry for 50 amazing years. Along with being in immense shock my mother Francine is still hospitalized recovering from her injuries & surgery from the car accident.

 So understandably myself (son), Taisha (daughter) & Shante (niece) have stepped in to organize  Barry’s Funeral. We’ve already had numerous emails, texts and messages from people asking how to help, so this campaign has been created as a way to keep everyone up-to-date with plans, and also offer a place for messages, memories and donations to be left.

Unfurtunately my father did not have life insurance as it was very difficult for him to get once he became ill with kidney disease. With that being said we all know funeral & burial expenses are costly as well as the adjustments my family must make after this. 

Understanding at the same time someone is going through something much worse & no one owes us anything. So to have love & support & people who genuinely want to help & make sure my family will be ok through this makes me feel amazing. Through it all the well being of my mother & younger brother (13) are now my new concerns. Although I’ll do everything I possibly can to take care of them I know your love, support & donations will be added blessings for them. I’m one who loves to do everything on my own & ask for nothing but I’ve learned to humble myself & let God do his work. So I ask for your help in each & every way as we grow through this. All donations will go towards Barry’s  service & the care of his wife (my mother) & 13 year old son (my brother) Sir L Waddell
