Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy On The Passing Of Barrie Dunsmore

Marcelle and I are just two of the countless Vermonters whose lives were brightened by having known Barrie.

As Vermonters we have been enriched and enlightened, and sometimes challenged, by his perceptive commentaries, in which he shared his experience and his sharp insights, drawn from a remarkable career that spanned the globe.  He had a great sense of history, which too often is missing today.  I looked forward to each of his essays, which I frequently shared with my staff and others.

At this sad time, Marcelle and I share our fond remembrances of Barrie with all who knew him, and especially his friends and neighbors in Charlotte.  We send our condolences and best wishes to Whitney, Timothy, Leeanne and Campbell, and to their entire family.
