Barry L. Gauthier, age 68 of Oshkosh, passed away Friday, January 19, 2018, with his wife by his side. He was born December 7, 1949, in Louisville, KY, son to the late Marcel and Dolores Gauthier.
Barry started his 40-year career with UW Oshkosh in 1975. Upon retirement he led Postal Services, Document Services and Central Stores/Receiving, a position he proudly performed with insight, vision and expertise. He was a member of the Association of College and University Printers (ACUPS), the University Mail Managers Association (UMMA) where he served in various Board positions, including President and served 22 years as a member of the National Association of College and University Mail Managers (NACUMS) where he served most recently as Vice President. In 2013, NACUMS presented him with the prestigious Lou Eichler award, the highest honor in the college and university mail industry. Even after retirement in 2015, Barry continued to assist UMMA and NACUMS. His contributions to both organizations were immeasurable.
In his free time Barry enjoyed softball, bowling, hunting, fishing, boating, relaxing at Silver Lake in Laona, WI and spending time with family, friends and his dogs. His family and friends meant the world to him, he loved them all dearly. His grandchildren, in particular, held a special place in his heart and always brought a smile to his face.
In addition to his wife Billie, Barry is survived by his daughter Cherie Gauthier (John Shambles), Oshkosh; Step-son Scott (Rebecca) Rennert, Oshkosh; and grandchildren Marcella and Bailey Rennert and Hayden, Camdyn and Evann Shambles. He is also survived by two sisters, Barbara (Bob) Morawetz and Dolores Ann Gauthier, three brothers, Bill (Janet) Gauthier, Robert Gauthier and Thomas (Melanie) Gauthier and several brothers- and sisters-in-law as well as nieces and nephews.
