In Memoriam

“Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower. We will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind.”

-William Wordsworth

Longtime resident of Dash Point, Jerry Barrett, passed away on October 5, 2021, with his daughters, Christine (Deming) and Lorelle (Leacy) by his side.

Tribute to Jerry Barrett

Jerry passed away recently with family after a very long and rewarding life spent in Dash Point.  As a child, Jerry’s parents rented cabins on the beach and decided to move here.  When Jerry married his beautiful wife Jackie, they decided to live in Dash Point as well.  His home overlooking the docks over the years gave them much pleasure.  Both were active in the community over the many years.  Jerry was on the Dash Point Improvement Club and spearheaded a drive to place the flag pole in the Community Park.  With his heart in this community, Jerry helped out with many events, including the Dash Point Fun Run. Give him a task and it would be done.  His tireless efforts also included seeing that a December Holiday Tree was put up each year at the end of the docks with beautiful lights.  This was always for Jackie, and the Community to enjoy.  His spirit lasts on and he is greatly missed by family and friends.
