Francis (Frank) E. Barry, my father, was a long distance truck driver. He had redish hair and fleckles. Neighbors and friends called him "Red". Married to my mother Dorothy M. Fleming Barry, Fleming-3419 August 28, 1941, they lived in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut. They had two children, Frank E Barry Jr Barry-1266 and myself Dorothy M Barry Barry-1264 .
Frank worked as a coal delivery driver during the 1940's. His business was on Connecticut Avenue, in Norwalk, Connecticut. He also drove for the "Bennett" fuel Company, out of Norwalk, in the 50's. Then he went to work for Sterling Drug Inc. in the late 50's, as a long distance driver. He retired from Sterling Drug in 1964,
After I joined the military, my parents moved to Woonsocket, Rhode Island in 1968. Frank died a year later, in August 1969 and was buried at St. Johns Cemetery in North Smithfield, Rhode Island.
Notes by profile manager, Dorothy M Barry Barry-1264, daughter of Frank E Barry Sr.
I have recently located a 1910 United States Federal Census report that confirms information I have collected since establishing a family tree here on Wiki Tree. I found that Frank E. Barry was living in the James Cavanagh (his uncle)'s household as his father Peter Barry Barry-1267 passed away when Frank was 7 years old. His mother Mary (Cavanaugh) Cavanaugh-257 now a widower, moved into her brother's home also noted by the United States Federal Census, 1910 family search. 
Another 1930 United States Federal Census report I found confirms the lst marriage of Frank Barry Sr to a Jeannette Barry and that the couple had a child named Elsie Barry (my sister that I did not know I had until December 2015).
During the flood of 1955 Frank Barry Sr worked for "Bennett" fuel Co (out of Norwalk in the 50's) and was asked to haul fuel oil to Hartford, Ct in one of their large tankers because they ran out of fuel. Parts of Route 1 (now along side Interstate 95) was gone (under water) and my brother says Frank had a police escort to help get him through the roads going up the "Merritt Parkway". 
Back in November 2014, I received a family bible from a cousin with a record of marriage indicated in 1941 in the state of Virginia between Dorothy M Fleming (my mother) and Frank E Barry Sr (my father). 
Note also that Dorothy M. Fleming Barry was not buried with her husband Mr. Francis Edward Barry Sr at ST Johns Cemetary in N Smithfield RI but rather was cremated.
Francis E. Barry, 71 of Victory Highway, North Smithfield died yesterday in Zambarano Memorial Hospital, Wallum Lake. He was the husband of Mrs. Dorothy (Fleming) Barry. He was born in Norwalk, Connecticut a son of the late Peter and Mary (Cavanaugh) Barry. Until five years ago he was employed as a long distance truck driver for the Sterling Drug, Inc of New York City.
