Barry Edward Enberg

Passed on May 22, 2023

June 28, 1961 – May 22, 2023    With heavy hearts, we share the sudden passing of Barry Enberg on May 22, 2023 at his home in the Norris Lake District.

Left to cherish his memory are his mother Agnes, brother Wayne (Carol), sisters Marlene (William and Jemiah) and Tracey (Michael), nieces Laura and Nicole, as well many beloved family and friends.

Barry was predeceased by his father Edward, sister Cheryll and lifelong best friend Larry McMahon.

Barry attended school in Teulon and graduated in 1979. After high school he started his carpentry career with Bill Reynolds out of Balmoral. After working with several crews and partners, he went on to establish his own business, Enberg Carpentry.

Barry was a sports enthusiast who played several sports including baseball, hockey, and broomball. He coached youth baseball, junior co-ed broomball, and at age 18 was president of the Inwood Sports Club. As a player, he started the Hillside Rebels co-ed broomball team and was an orginal member of the Inwood Invaders men’s hockey team, both starting in the 1979-80 season.

The summertime was fastball with the Teulon Reds (1978-91) and co-ed slow pitch with the Teulon Inmates, starting in 1992. Other hobbies included raising exotic birds, fishing, and camping.

Barry was a partner with the group that bought the Inwood golf course in 1989 from John Olsen. His partners included his brother Wayne, Frank Thorkelson and Ed Waluk.

During the 2nd season of 1990, Barry was diagnosed as bipolar, a disorder he would battle with the rest of his life. He then stepped away from the golf course to focus on his carpentry career.

As Barry battled his disorder, he was lucky to be surrounded by many friends and family members who were there to help him along his journey. Barry kept working up to the time of his death on May 22, 2023.

Barry lived life the way he wanted to, adventure after adventure. If he wasn’t herding bison across the slough on a snowmobile to help a friend, he was expanding his many properties. He was man of simple pleasures. He loved country music and bonfires with friends and family.

Any one who knew Barry enjoyed his company. His natural charm and conversation were always welcome.

Barry’s legacy will live on with every beautiful house, shop or cabin he built through the Interlake as well as in the memories of everyone who loved him.

A graveside service will be held at Norris Lake Cemetery on Thursday, June 15, 2023 at 1:30 pm, with lunch to follow at Inwood Community Hall.

Be at peace brother.

Barry you will be missed deeply. Your love for family, friends and nature. When you got home from work your favorite thing was the outdoors. Watching the beavers build their dams. Watching a family of squirrels or rabbits running around your yard. Making birdfeeders to put all over the place so you could see the beautiful birds. Watching the deer go through the pastures and the fields. Or just sitting in a lawn chair breathing the fresh air and listening to world. Love you Barry.

To the Enberg Family, We send our condolences and prayers that God will comfort you during this difficult time. Loss of a loved one is never easy. Take comfort that others will support you throughout your grieving. We have great respect and feel very honored to have had Barry in our lives. As a carpenter, he helped Bill Reynolds build our home in 1985. He played baseball along with Leonard back in those youthful days with the McMahon boys and Allan Hamaberg at the Inwood Sports day. I always enjoyed trying to get Barry to talk and joke between games . Quiet, shy, very smart, always very polite - wonderful fellow. You will be missed, Barry not only by old and new friends but by each person you had contact through out the years. Rest in Peace.

Leonard and Josie Lindley

Alan and Gail Schick

It was with saddened shock that we learnt of Barry’s passing. The first thing that came to mind was his smile. Kind of a shy smile. Always took the time to chat. Back in school you never saw Barry without Larry close behind or vies versa. Guess heaven has its own shenanigans now! Rest in Peace Barry
