“East End Legend”

WATERBURY –George Omer Barrieau, age 71, of Waterbury, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, June 26, 2020 at home.

George was born July 5th, 1948 in Waterbury, CT, the son of the late Camille and Anita (Comeau) Barrieau. He was educated in local schools and was part of the first graduating class of Kennedy High School. George spent close to 20 years working as a baker at Reymond’s Bakery before pursuing his knack for building. He was a skilled craftsman and an owner/operator of G&R Siding until he retired in 2013.

George worked hard, and he played hard. A talented athlete and fan of a little friendly competition, he enjoyed playing softball, was a member of the Perrillo’s bowling league, and was known as a bit of a pool shark for his incredible billiards skills. He was outgoing, always fun to be around, and had the ability to make instant friends with anyone he met. His presence will be missed at many of the establishments throughout the East End of Waterbury, including the Franco-American Social Club where he was a long-time member.

George was also an incredible father, and it is his sons who will miss him most of all. Left to cherish his memories and honor George’s love and legacy, are his sons; Robert Barrieau and his wife, Carah of Waterbury, and Joseph Barrieau and his wife, Darcy of Middletown, RI. He also leaves his brother, Charles Barrieau of Watertown and his sister, Diane Barile of Southington. George was blessed with two adoring grandchildren, Mia and Maxwell. He was predeceased by his brother William Barrieau, Sr.

Graveside Services for Mr. Barrieau will be held on Tuesday, July 7th 2020 at 11:15 A Calvary Cemetery East Main St Waterbury. Those planning to attend are asked to meet directly at the cemetery. There are no calling hours. Casey’s Eastside Memorial Funeral Home 1987 East Main St @ Southmayd Rd Waterbury, CT 06705 has been honored to assist the Barrieau family during this difficult time.

So many memories of the early years & our families. The one that comes to mind is a Christmas Eve when Jack was in the hospital. You came over to help me put the toys together even though you had your own to do at home. That is just how you were. I’ll aways remember you laugh. You can be so proud of your boys. There love for you runs deep.RIP
Your sister-in-law, Mary Ann

I first met George thru Perrilllo’d Industrial Bowling League, then we went to Franco’s for beer & pool, He was a great pool player! The description of him was accurate. George was a gifted athlete in virtually everything he participated in. Great bowler, pool shooter, and softball player; had a sarcastic edge but in a joking smiling manner. Sorry to learn of this loss, he always wore a green workman’s foreman cap. George commanded respect, he was not shy to comment on wacky current events, and we always had a good time in sports and beers. He was a jovial guy, worked hard, and played very well. I shall always remember the good times with George!!! Very sorry for his family’s loss.

To the Barrieau my deepest sympathies. George and I grew up in the East End of Waterbury, he on Joseph Street and I on Woodtick Road. As running buddies we were, more so him than me, mischievous guys. It's very hard to look back on the good times and know you've lost a good friend. However I live by the adage that when you are born you are given an appointment with your maker. An appointment you cannot postpone or reschedule. His time to return has come and he will be greatly missed by all who ever came in contact with him. Be at peace my friend.
