Barry Giblin passed away on November 9, 2019.

A lifelong resident of Verona, he was a parishioner of Our Lady of the Lake Church and attended Verona schools, graduating class of 1971.

He will be missed.

Barry is survived by his sister, Betsey and her husband, Tony Ugarte, his beloved nieces and nephew, Jenny, Jessie and Jason Blankenship, as well as many dear friends.
