Barry Gemmell

September 2, 1931 ~ April 15, 2022 (age 90)


Our wonderful father passed away on Friday, April 15th, 2022 at the age of 90. Treasured by his three children Kathryn, Karry (Clare Aitken), and Kelli (James McRobert & Tucker). Pre-deceased by his true love Barbara (nee Vincent) and parents Thomas Gemmell and Edith (nee Goyeau) of Windsor, Ontario. 

Barry will be missed by his sister-in-law(s) Anne Channon (Jack Ellis), Arlene Buckley (Frank), Debbie Vincent, his niece Cara Buckley, nephew(s) Kenny, Chris, Karl Channon (Sherilyn), Robin Buckley (Inyoung Choi), and his numerous friends including the BMO Pensioners, both near and far. 

Known for his athleticism, intelligence, hard work, and generosity, Barry touched many souls during his time here with his quick wit and inquisitive charm. He was a bank executive by trade but had a passion for all things farming, computers, books, and basketball. May he be sitting proud on his John Deere tractor continuing his next journey with our mother gardening by his side.

No Funeral Service will be held, however, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In memory of his legacy a donation to a charity of your choice would be appreciated. Online condolences, photos, and stories can be shared at
