In Loving Memory Barry Jay Blattner April 26, 1973~May 10, 2008 Barry was born April 26, 1973 at St. John’s Hospital in Vanderhoof. He was lovingly raised on the Sob
Lake Ranch. He attended most of his elementary school years at Mapes Elementary. He graduated from NVSS and went on to college briefly, before deciding that a girl by the name of Sindee Sunderland was much more important.
Barry and Sindee were married on July 20, 1996 and
went on to become the proud parents of two wonderful boys, Liam and Owen. Barry was a loving and devoted husband and an exceptional father who took his boys on many outings and dutifully raised them to be outstanding

days on earth were spent in the most remote backcountry of BC on one of his many modified fourwheelers – riding, hunting, and exploring. Barry is painfully missed by his
family. He is survived by his Wife, Sindee (Sunderland) Blattner, his two Sons, Liam Mason and Owen Jaxx, his Father, David Thomas Blattner (Beverly), his Brother, Paul Blattner (Melissa), his Grandfather, Raymond Poulsen, and his Aunt, Karen Poulsen and numerous close relatives.
Barry has reunited with his Mother, Bobbi (Roberta Blattner), his Grandfather, Jiggs (Garould Blattner), Grandmother, (Billie Blattner) and Grandmother, Kay (Kathleen Poulsen). Barry will be remembered by many in the community and greatly missed by all that knew him for his gentle loving ways, his devotion to family and his warm
