I was very saddened to hear about Barry's passing. I played on the same team with him. For his stature he was a super ball player. I assume that he probably succumbed to Leukemia. I lost my oldest daughter, Kathy Lynn De Mello, at 10 years of age to Leukemia in 1980. I extend my sympathies and condolences to the McGee family. I also reside in Estero, FL where it was listed that his son, Timmy also resides.
