SCHOLARSHIP FUND STARTED TO HONOR BARRY

In honor of Wilfred A. Barry, who died early Sunday morning, a scholarship fund is being established to assist local high school graduates seeking to pursue studies leading to careers in law enforcement.
Barry's family is requesting that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to the Wilfred Barry Law Enforcement Scholarship Fund.
Barry, acting chief deputy of the U.S. Marshal Service in the Virgin Islands, was known for his work with young people to dissuade them from getting involved in lives of crime.
His widow, Charlotte Amalie High School principal Jeanette Smith Barry, said a special offering would be collected at the funeral services for Barry. Contributions also may be mailed to PO Box 512, St. Thomas VI 00804.
The funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday at the Memorial Moravian Church.
