Barry H. Ansin, 67 – late of Orlando, Fla., formerly of Lynn. Died on December 15, 2018.
He was the beloved brother of Faith Lerner of Peabody. Loving uncle of Samantha and Cody Ross. Cousin of Eileen Grossman and Jennifer Grossman of Pooler, Ga., Jessica Grossman of Savannah, Ga., and Susan and Seymour Gabbin of N.Y., N.Y. He was the dear son of the late Harold and Ethel (Bukofsky) Ansin and the brother-in-law of the late Mark Lerner.
Barry received an elementary education through Beverly School for the Deaf and went on to graduate from the Austine School for the Deaf in Brattleboro, Vt. From the age of 18 until 52, Barry proudly worked at the United States Postal Service.
His favorite pastime was watching old movies, especially the classic black and white films of the 1930’s. His love of Disney World was evident and living in Orlando only fueled his enjoyment through close proximity to this happy environment. Barry was always dressed well, having an affinity to Polo clothing, and dessert was a treat that he rarely could pass by. His family will lovingly miss him each day.
A funeral service for Barry was held on December 23 at Stanetsky Hymanson Memorial Chapel, Salem. Interment followed in the Temple Israel Section of Shirat Hayam Cemetery, Peabody.
