Barry Dores, 74


CRANSTON, R.I. – Barry N. Dores passed away on April 7, 2022, at Shorepoint Health in Venice, Florida. He was the beloved husband of Maureen (Dressler) Dores for 52 years. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, a son of the late Hyman and Bella (Weiss) Dores, he was a graduate of Wentworth Institute. He was a manager at Colfax for 30 years, retiring in 1999, and the president of Times Remembered.

Barry loved his homes in Venice, Pembroke, Massachusetts, and, for more than 50 years, in Cranston. He enjoyed playing cards, billiards and boating with friends and family. He had a passion for music, and was a guitarist, vocalist and keyboard player for the Levi’s rock band. He composed songs inspired by and created for family and friends. He took pleasure in photography, capturing happy events and natural habitats.

More than anything, Barry adored his children and grandchildren. He was the devoted father of Dr. James Dores of Sturbridge, Massachusetts, and Marissa Katz (Dr. Daniel) of Cooperstown, New York; the loving grandfather of Hannah, Matthieu, Zachary, Benjamin, Aaron and Sam and brother of Dr. Robert Dores (Carol) of Brookfield, Connecticut and Sedona, Arizona, and the late James Dores.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to Jewish Alliance of Greater RI, 401 Elmgrove Ave., Providence, RI 02906, or to the charity of your choice.
