Barry Alan Lesizza Experience
Barry’s experience gained serving in the Navy as an HVAC mechanical engineer, led him to a career in HVAC estimating. When not working, he found his true enjoyment in music, restoring vintage LP albums, fishing, and researching anything involving model trains with his grandson, the apple of his eye. His wife, Yvonne (Doiron) Lesizza, his daughter Lesly (Lesizza) Connolly, and his grandson, Sean Alan Connolly are here enjoying the memories of his infectious laugh, incredible sense of humor, and are comforted knowing how he touched the lives of his closest friends and those he met through the years. We would like to thank the Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital’s 6 Mountain ICU staff for their loving care of Barry and our family during our brief time there.
