We sadly mourn the passing of Barry Pattison, 77 years of age, of Boca Raton, FL and Bloomfield, CT. He passed away Monday, December 22, 2014. Born in Hartford, CT, he was the son of the late Joseph and Bessie (Goldberg) Pattison. Barry worked for the State of CT as a social worker and was a member of the Emanuel Synagogue of West Hartford, CT. He volunteered regularly in hospitals and the court system.
Barry was a true friend, both caring and understanding, and always concerned with the wellbeing of others. A generous, kind hearted man with a gentle demeanor. He listened attentively and offered advice without preconceptions or judgement.
He was extremely close with his co-workers, friends, and neighbors. He was loved like family to many. He relished in his home and gardens in CT, but his wonderful friends in FL truly lit up his life! Barry enjoyed many years of travel around the world and was a regular at the Water’s Edge beach in Westbrook CT. He was never one to turn down a meal at Lenny and Joe’s or a Mojito in FL. He “felt like a young kid” enjoying live music, having parties, dining out, and having a good laugh.
Barry was always about the simple, but good things in life! He will be missed.
Funeral services will be held at 9:30 AM on Friday, December 26, 2014 at the Hartford Mutual Society Cemetery, Wolcott Rd., East Granby, CT. Memorial donations may be made to any charitable cause in lieu of flowers. Arrangements are entrusted to Weinstein Mortuary, Hartford, CT.
