Tributes paid to Tony Barry by Loved ones
Good points, Gaylene. Recently in Brunswick Heads, I had a couple of encounters with him (near Byron Bay). As you know, I gave him a copy of “Gaylene’s Take” during our most recent meeting in September. In addition to being moved by your remarks on the cover, he was overjoyed to think that you would send him an advance copy. He regularly purchased his vegetables at the Mullumbimby fair, where I spent a good deal of time with him. He needed assistance organising all of his wheelchair-related accessories.
Still, once that was done, he moved through the fairgrounds like a freight train, stopping at nearly every booth to ask about people’s families, health, and other matters. In his introduction, he identified me as his “son from New Zealand,” a title I proudly wore as I accompanied this extraordinarily kind force of nature. The towbar Vale.
Gaylene, I’m sorry to hear this. Tony and I were close friends in Sydney; we first met on a set or another place and clicked immediately. His “resting” job was in the hospitality industry. He hired me to work with him on a TV show concept called “The Waiting Game,” in which independent waiters employed by a contract caterer were all patiently awaiting the emergence of their true callings.
However, that was before he joined the waggon. In the future, we would laugh about how, when he had a few drinks, he would call me at ungodly hours and wax poetic over what I had written, but that when he was sober, I rationalised that he had a hangover, he detested it. It naturally came to nothing, then.
