Obituary for Sgt. Barry Weissman

On January 23, 2021, Sgt. Barry Weissman, a dedicated member of the Town of Wallkill Police Dept., stepped off his beat for the last time after a courageous battle with COVID-19. He was 70 years old.

The son of the late Sam and Katie Leiter Weissman, Barry was born on May 20, 1950 in the Bronx. He was a 1968 graduate of James Monroe High School in New York City . On March 2, 1974, he married the love of his life, Maria Morales in the Bronx. His marriage to Maria introduced him to Latin culture. He spoke Spanish, and enjoyed dancing the maranga and other Latin styles.

His love of the law and attention to detail made him well suited to his career in law enforcement. He was faithful to his duty as a police officer. Barry was the go-to guy for the TOW PD for any large gatherings and local events.

He was one of a kind; known to his loved ones as “ The Man, The Myth, The Legend”. His family describes him as humorous, witty, loving, supportive and compassionate. Barry had a tough and strong exterior but friends, family and co-workers knew him to be humble, sociable, brave, meticulous and always reliable. He always took the opportunity for care of others, sometimes remaining anonymous in his generosity.

In addition to his loving wife Maria at home, he is survived by his son, Jason Weissman and his wife Rosalie; his daughter Michele Weissman, one grandson Isaiah Weissman; his cousins Douglas and Audrey; Maria’s siblings, nieces, nephews and numerous friends.
