Barry Eager 1961-2010

Barry Eager, a 32-year UMaine staff member who worked most recently as a Memorial Union custodian, died on Sunday at the age of 49.  A long-time Orono resident, Eager had suffered from esophageal cancer.  “Barry was a great friend to all of us in the UMaine community,” says Robert Dana, UMaine’s vice president for student affairs and dean of students. “Working in the Union, he came in contact with a great many students, who enjoyed his company and appreciated his efforts in making the student union a warm and welcoming place.  He will be missed, and we all extend our sympathies to Barry’s family and friends.” A Tuesday Bangor Daily News obituary has more information about his life and his family members.  It notes that “a memorial service will be held 11 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 30, at Brookings-Smith, 133 Center St., Bangor, with the Rev. Herman C. Frankland officiating. The family invites relatives and friends to share conversation and refreshments at the Family Reception Center at Brookings-Smith, 163 Center St., Bangor, after the service. Interment will be in the spring. Gifts in his memory may be made to Veterans Memorial Room Fund, care of University of Maine, Andrea Gifford, Deans Suite Memorial Union, Orono, ME 04469.
