Barry Who?

Some of you may remember Barry Collins, VP of Escape Customer Care. He retired at the end of 2011 and is doing GREAT! Susan Dickinson, Software Developer, Robin Fiske, Software Tester, and I had the privilege of having lunch with Barry over the holidays.

It was so awesome to catch up on his travels and new adventures. His latest and greatest adventure is a new marriage. Barry tied the knot a little over a year ago and we are very happy for him! He glows when he talks about his wife. It’s so refreshing to be with someone who’s still on their honeymoon. 

We also got to hear about a few trips he’s enjoyed, like a nice visit to Sequoia National Park where he touched the oldest living thing (a tree) in the world. Another trip he enjoyed telling us about was his honeymoon to Hawaii. He’s also gone to Mexico on a vacation, fulfilling his love to travel. He also loves family. He’s a proud grandpa of three and loves every minute with them. 

Robin’s favorite quote of Barry’s was, “When I feel any stress, I just take a nap!” As always, Barry is still handing out sage advice. There is no retirement from that!

Life is going GREAT for Mr. Collins and all of us at Escape continue to wish him the very best!
