Barry was an exemplary teacher and community leader for over 44 years in the Glenboro, Glenora, Belmont and Baldur areas. Barry loved teaching and students loved him. He made learning fun while always challenging each student to reach for his/her best. The joy in learning was a special gift that Mr. Moore gave to over 1000 students during his many decades of teaching. He was greatly admired, appreciated and most especially valued, not only as a teacher but also as a volunteer and friend for numerous groups/organizations in his community.
