About Barry Dearing

Barry Dearing, son, husband, father, friend, coach, basketball official, and dedicated educator passed away January 16th, 2014 in the company of family and friends, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Barry was born in 1956, to a family with a long history in the Shuswap. Barry himself spent only four years of his life away from Salmon Arm – to attend university and to teach for one year in Australia.

From an early age, Barry was an avid participant in many sports including hockey, baseball, volleyball, basketball, tennis, and golf. After graduating from high school in 1974, Barry attended the University of Victoria to obtain his Bachelor of Education degree, and later, a Master of Education degree. He spent his entire career in the Shuswap as a much-loved teacher and administrator and had recently retired, hoping to explore the golf courses of the world. Instead, he battled cancer with the determination, positive attitude, and humour that he was known for.

Barry was also a highly regarded basketball official and served as president of the local referee’s association as well as on the executive for the BCBOA. He was also on the executive for the Shuswap Children’s Association and the Salmon Arm Golf Club.
