Born in Liverpool, Barry was a son of the late Aulton and Maybelle (Croft) Whynot.
Barry spent his early years working as a truck driver for a book binding company and later moved to Toronto where he drove long-haul. This career fueled his passion for trucks, especially Fords, which sparked many opportunities for friendly banter with his family and friends. Barry spent the remainder of his working life at Bowater Mersey Paper Company in Brooklyn, NS.
Barry devoted many hours of his life to community service notably with the Nova Scotia Guides Association where he served many years in a number of executive positions, the RCMP Emergency Measures and Ground Search and Rescue organizations in both Queens and Lunenburg counties. He was to receive a 35 years of service award this year presented by Lunenburg Ground Search and Rescue. In addition to his many awards and recognitions, Barry was humbled by the acknowledgement for his role assisting with rescue and recovery operations for the Swissair Flight 111 disaster.
Barry was an avid hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman. He enjoyed camping and watching the Toronto Blue Jays and NASCAR. Barry was also very fond of animals and missed his beloved companion Lilly Mae Whynot.
