Default Sad news at Compass... RIP Carl Barry

Breaking news here,

Just heard Carl Barry,has passed away.He was found unconsciense at his gym last night,a worker found him laying on the floor, and checked his wallet and found his compass ID. Sad stuff,they are trying to contact his family but noone is picking up.

Carl,was going through some tough times, with his family, and he had a son, and a baby on the way. Being away from his wife was getting hard on her.Obviously he had alot going on...really sad news.

When it rains it pours, I know for me personally losing both Carl and my father in the same week, its just a real sharp reminder that we should be thankful for all we've got,and that life no matter how you lived it is a precious thing...To you. Captn' Barry

Prayers and condolences are with his family and friends. Never an easy thing to hear, let alone during the holidays.

Wow. This is a shock. You sure about this? Haven't seen anything on company email yet. Flew with Carl several times and talked to him most recently last week, he picked up a trip from me that he would've flown today .

Life is fragile and fleeting. Enjoy the moment for we do not know when it will all end for us. I lost my own father a few years ago. Only people who have lost their own loved ones can understand what you go through emotionally. A really ironic part is my father survived numerous combat missions only to lose his life through a car accident. It took over a year for me to actually start my grieving for him because I had to be strong for my mother.

Don't you think you should refrain from posting his name on here until next of kin is at least notified? Can you imagine finding out a loved one is dead from a fourm?



RIP...
