It is with surprise and sadness I learned of the passing of Barry Blount on July 4, 2016. He passed while at Abbotsford General Hospital. My thoughts are with him and his widow, Annette.
Annette wrote the following announcement
It is with great sadness that I have to announce that my husband, Barry Blount, passed away today Monday, July 4th, at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital in Abbotsford, British Columbia. There will be a very private cremation, followed by a small memorial service at the Cooks Presbyterian Church in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada on Friday, July 15, 2016 at 2:00 pm.
If anyone is interested, in lieu of flowers, I am requesting a donation be made to the Vasculitis Foundation of Canada on his behalf. Barry died from this disease, which is an auto immune disease also known as “Wegener’s disease.” Since it is not a well known, it was difficult for doctors to treat it properly.
