Barry Schiess Obituary

Three years following his first cancer diagnosis, Kamakani (also known as Barry Schiess) left this world on May 10, 2022 to enter into the flow of Life that is beyond all earthly concerns. He leaves behind his sister, his brother, two nieces, as well as a host of other relatives, chosen family members, and friends. He leaves behind his loving husband of nearly 30 years as well. Although we will never again hear his unique laughter, we will sense him in the ringing of every bell, we will feel him with every conscious breath, and we will see him more clearly than we have ever seen him before.


Kamakani will be cremated; his ashes will be cast into his garden in Port Townsend during an intimate memorial gathering. Rather than sending flowers or cards, please consider posting a tribute to a virtual guestbook and contributing to memorial funds set up for the Human Rights Campaign and/or Lifelong. Links are below.


Rest well, Kamakani. You deserve it. Please give my love to Doobie, Gorby-kit, and Adair. Aloha.


You know I’m glad that we met man
It really was nice talking and I really wish that there was a little more time to speak
