Barry Eugene Blesing, age 82, of Three Rivers, passed away on Wednesday, June 3, 2020 at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born on February 21, 1938 in Kalamazoo, MI, the son of the late Eugene and Ida (Campbell) Blesing. Barry was raised in Gobles, MI on Brandywine Lake where he spent time fishing with his Mom and working on many projects with his Dad. He served his country in the U.S. Air Force and upon his discharge began working at National Water Lift alongside his father. He also spent many of his earlier years buying, fixing, and racing cars. He later became a Tool and Die maker at X-L Machine where he met the love of his life Pam. Barry and Pam spent the last 20 years of his life fishing and cruising the St. Joe River. Above all Barry loved his family and his friends. He was always willing to help anyone in need. He will be greatly missed by all.
