It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of James "Barry" Duchesne on Monday, March 11, 2024, at the age of 77. Beloved brother to Jack (Marg) and David (Maura). Barry had a special bond with his niece and nephews Tara, Patrick, and Christophe­r. He will also be missed by Roxanne, Trevor, Shannon, Mary-Catharine, Michael,

Joanne, and Theresa. And will forever be in the heart of his special friend Laminesa. Predecease­d by his parents, Theodor and Janet (née Payne), his siblings Terrence and Suzanne, and his niece and nephew Cheryl and Theodore.

Barry loved spending time with his family, and he adored his mother immensely, cherishing her deeply prior to her passing. His generous spirit led him to help countless individual­s, volunteeri­ng at the library to teach English. Barry began his profession­al journey at the age of 19, working at the CIBC in Welland, Ridgway, and Windsor. Over the years, he transition­ed to Stelco Credit Union, where he made significan­t contributi­ons before retiring as a respected manager and member of the board of directors at the Golden Horseshoe Credit Union Limited in Hamilton.
