Barry Haynes has been a part of the funeral business for many years. A former student of the Ellerslie Secondary School, Barry studied Electrical Installation for five years before establishing his career in the hospitality industry as a Chef, working the restaurant circuit for over thirty years.
Never a slacker, punctuality is one of his strong suits. Barry can be relied on to perform the delicate task of removing human remains from private residences or the hospital. His is a face that on most funeral days may be spotted in the cemetery ensuring that the grave is in the correct state for interment. He also takes care of setting up the tent for the grieving family or at Church and other functions where the Downes & Wilson tent is erected.
Barry is an easygoing individual whose dry wit and stories will leave the listener laughing out loud.
