It is with heavy hearts that we announce Barrie’s passing on Saturday, November 27, 2021, in his 73rd year with his angel, Szu-Ying, by his side. Predeceased by his loving parents Roy and Esther (Hettie) McDowell. Cherished father to Jason and Justin (Kimberly) McDowell. Special Poppa to Meghan, Alexandra and Ashley. Barrie will be deeply missed by his sister Trish (Terry) Riva and brothers Robert (Maryanne) and David (Heather) McDowell. He will be fondly remembered by his nieces, nephews, friends and colleagues. Barrie had a distinguished career with the Niagara Regional Police for over 30 years. In his retirement he enjoyed buying vehicles (“GM only, goddammit”), golfing, and running his fingers over his goatee. In keeping with Barrie’s wishes, cremation has taken place and private family burial will be held at VICTORIA LAWN CEMETERY. Memorial donations to the Lincoln County Humane Society in St.Catharines will be appreciated by his family. You are invited to share memories and condolences at the Royal Canadian Legion, where Barrie was a member, at 2 Chestnut St E, in Merritton on Sunday, December 12th between 1 p.m.- 4 p.m..
