Barry was a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, having served his country during the Vietnam War. He enjoyed duck hunting, fishing, and watching westerns, so much that he should have been born a cowboy. He was also a very active member of the NRA (National Rifle Association). His passion in life though was his family, especially his grandchildren, including the nieces, nephews and their friends that considered him “Paw-Paw”.
Survivors include his wife of 45 years, Myrtle “Myrt” Mondor Chauvin; two children, Melissa Chauvin Suire and her husband, Jarrod; and Marcus A. Chauvin and his wife, Ronda; four grandchildren, Kayla Suire, Jessica Suire, Justin Suire and Tyler Chauvin; four siblings, Bonnie Rogers, Brenda (his twin) Vallet and her husband, Steve; Randy Chauvin and his wife, Fran; and Monica Bertrand and her husband, Verlon; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and other family members.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Elwood Chauvin and Pearl Lorio Chauvin; one brother, Chris Chauvin; and two nephews, Shane and Jason Vallet.
