John and Maureen Marvin - April 15, 2021

It is with a very heavy heart that we write a goodbye to one of our dearest friends we have had for the last 40 years. We were one of 13 campsites when you started Jubilee. The dances, children's games, building the pavilion, repairing the swimming pool and putting up with the awful bathrooms before you renovated them are distant memories. We could go on and on but one thing is for sure...we absolutely loved you and the environment you established for us and our children. Miss you our friend.....

Morgan Witherall - April 15, 2021

We are deeply saddened by the news of Barry’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Lee and your family. I had known Barry for most of my life. He watched me grow up in Jubalee when my Mom and Dad moved in the park almost 37 years ago. Since then, my wife Rita and I bought a trailer and he watched my 3 boys become young men there. The Jubalee family will live on forever because of Barry! We were privileged to have known him and will miss him much. RIP Barry
