William Dane Barry, Sr. (Bill), a resident of Millsboro, Delaware and former 30-year resident of West Milford, passed away on Feb. 18, 2017. He was 66.

Bill was born on Dec. 25, 1950 in Litchfield, Illinois. Bill was a Kean University graduate in social work, and had a master’s degree from Fordham University. Prior to his retirement in 2014, Bill dedicated his career to mental health advocacy as a licensed clinical social worker and behavioral healthcare administrator at Care Plus Bergen County and Oaks Behavioral Healthcare Services in Cherry Hill. Bill was an avid traveler and spent many summers with his family traveling the national park system. He was happiest with his family and friends around him and a glass of red wine in his hand. He will be remembered for his quick wit, easy laugh, and generous heart.

Bill’s true calling was as beloved husband and father. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Connie Barry (nee Iannicelli), and children, Bill Barry Jr. and his fiancée Erin Howard, and Katie Barry. In addition to his wife and children, he is also survived by a large and loving family including his brother, Jim Barry and his wife Martha; his sisters-in-law, Domenica Best and her husband Ed and Maryann Britton and her husband Lee; his brother-in-law, Tony Iannicelli and his wife Connie; his nieces, Danielle and Jessica Britton; nephews, Craig Barry and Matt Barry and his wife Amie; and great-niece and nephew, Paige and Cameron Barry.

No services are planned at this time, cremation will be private.

The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the American Cancer Society in Bill’s memory.
