Barry R. Delibero, age 73 of Newfield, NY passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, April 24, 2022 at his home.

Born November 23, 1948 in Ithaca, NY, he was always one to push the limits. He was an artist and photographer.

He also enjoyed remote control car racing and fishing. He owned his own business “Grey Bear Photography” specializing in black and white developing and printing. He was employed as a campus photographer at Cornell, for over 25 years, and FoodNet of Tompkins County, where he enjoyed helping others and meeting new people.

Barry is survived by his loving wife, Sandee Brown Delibero; his son, Martin (Danielle) Fennimore of Groton, NY; his daughter, Katee (Eric) Murphy of Albany, NY; granddaughters, Alyssa, Maggie and Becca Fennimore and Raegan and Elora Murphy; brother in law, William (Bonnie – deceased) Brown of Newfield.
