The New York State Gaming Commission joins the family of William G. Barry in mourning his death at the age of 91.

Noted as a friend and confidant of leaders in business, government and sports, Barry was appointed chairman of the state racing and wagering board in 1976 by Gov. Hugh Carey.

Barry ably served in that capacity until 1978 and will be long remembered for his many contributions to horse racing. Bill’s career reflected his dedication to public service and respect for the law.

Bill’s love for racing was instilled in his son Brian, who currently is serves as the gaming commission’s director of racing. The commission would like to send its condolences to Mary Lou, his wife of 68 years, his seven children and his extended family.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the family and friends of William Barry.
