Mr. Gene Barry will be sadly missed...
Born in 1919, as Eugene Klass of New York, Mr. Gene Barry spent his life in a fruitful world that most will never know.
He was attending New Utrecht High School in Brooklyn when he won a singing contest and a scholarship to the Chatham Square School of Music. While studying there, he began singing on the New York radio station WHN.
Mr. Barry leaves behind for the world an incredible array of projects he was involved in, in one shape or form, that will continue to touch the hearts of generations to come.
Barry, a versatile performer who delivered a Tony-nominated performance in the hit 1980s Broadway musical "La Cage aux Folles," died Wednesday of congestive heart failure at Sunrise Assisted Living in Woodland Hills, said his son Michael.
The actor, who had had Alzheimer's disease for about five years, entered Sunrise in early summer. The increased socialization had helped improve his father's mental capacity, his son said.
Mr. Barry is survived by a mass of family consisting of three children, three grand children and two great grand children.
