Barry Colp

The family of Barry William Colp, 57, are sad to announce a Silent Key VE1 DO, after his sudden death on January 20, 2016 at home in Nineveh. Born in New Germany, Barry lived in Nineveh almost his whole life. He was the beloved eldest son of William and Grace (Veinot) Colp, and was married to the love of his life, Judi, for 28 years. Together they had three children, and three grandchildren who were the light of his life. Barry loved his family, his home, and his community - having served as a dedicated member of the Hemford and District Fire Department for decades. He was also an active HAM radio operator (VE1 DO) and took every opportunity to share that passion, particularly with young people in Scouts, Guides, and in schools, was a longstanding member of the Lunenburg County Amateur Radio Club, and did communications for the Regional EMO. Barry had a strong faith and was a member of St. John's in the Wilderness Anglican Church in New Germany. Barry was an avid hunter and fisher, loved being in the woods, and was a great storyteller. He had a kind and generous heart and was always quick to lend a hand to anyone who needed it. He will be deeply missed by his wife, Judi; his children Zac (Megan), Allie (Will), and William (Reba); grandchildren Malachi, Harley, and Thea; sisters Maxine (Vonnie) Simpson, Louise (Rod) Hall, and Debbie (David) Schnare; and nieces Shauna, Savanna, Kim, and Lori-Ann; nephews Kenny, James, and Matthew; and great nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was predeceased by his parents William and Grace (Veinot) Colp, brother Ricky, nephew Tracy, and treasured aunts and uncles. There will be visitation at R.A. Corkum's Funeral Home in Wileville Tues Jan. 26 from 6-8 pm. Funeral service will be held at St John In The Wilderness Anglican Church, New Germany on Wed Jan. 27 at 11 am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to PWRDF's National Youth Project or the Hemford and District Fire Department. On-line condolences may be made by visiting www.corkumfuneralhome.ca
