Barry Constantine, 51, of Evanston, passed away June 26, in his home in Greeley, Colorado, from a stroke.
He was born in Huron, South Dakota, on May 8, 1963, to Donald Bradley and Sharon Lea Constantine. He was a graduate of Miller High School in Miller, South Dakota.
After high school he spent 17 years working for the City of Evanston. In 1998, Barry moved to Wilbur, Washington, where his father and brother were living.
While in Wilbur, he took over a family business and also worked for Grant County Road and Bridge Dept. in Washington. In 2001 he returned to Evanston to work for the city again.
In 2005, he went to work for Pure Energy/FMC, which took him to many locations within the energy industry. His employment with FMC relocated him to Greeley in 2014.
Barry was full of life, laughter and compassion. He was a loving dad, brother and son. Friends and co-workers will remember his willingness to help out in any situation at any time.
Within the communities he lived, Barry was an active volunteer, helping the fire departments, paramedics, search and rescue and local area events such as the Winter Olympics in Park City, Utah. He was well known by many as a bang-up joke teller, and could always bring comic relief to any situation. Barry was truly one of a kind.
Barry was preceded in death by his mother Sharon Constantine and grandfather Lawrence Bonnes.
Barry is survived by his sons Preston Constantine of Salt Lake City, and Carson Constantine of Evanston; father Donald Constantine and stepmother Sherry Constantine, both of Electric City, Washington; brother Bradley Constantine and sister-in-law Lisa Galioto-Constantine both of Cody; grandmother Norma Bonnes, Sioux Falls, South Dakota; many uncles, aunts and cousins.
His life will be remembered forever by many friends and family. A memorial service and celebration of life is planned for Aug. 1, at 3 p.m. in Evanston at the Union Presbyterian Church on Center Street, followed by a celebration of life at Suds Brothers Brewery.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund for his sons has been established at the Trona Valley Federal Credit Evanston Branch at 236 Harrison Dr., Evanston, WY 82930.
