The funeral is taking place today for young Barry Rainey who died suddenly on Sunday.

The 27-year-old died suddenly at a party in Lurgan’s Flush Place on Sunday morning.

Mr Rainey was regarded as a fun-loving young man with ‘a big heart’.

Requiem Mass for Mr Rainey is to be held in St Anthony’s Church, Craigavon at 12pm today.

A relative said the father-of-two was ‘very family orientated’.

With his partner Danielle Campbell, the couple had two little girls, Kyla, aged two and ten-month-old Kaycee.

His parents Sandra and John Rainey are orginally from the Kilwilkie and Princes St areas and Barry was brought up in Craigavon.

A former pupil at Lismore, Barry was described as ‘very funny’ and ‘very family orientated’.

“He thought the world of his mum and was very close to his late grandfather Patrick Fox,” said a close relative.

He is also survived by his sister and brother Shannon and Conor.

His passing is deeply regretted by his sorrowing father, mother, partner, daughters, brother, sister, grandmothers Ellie and Anne, aunts, uncles, cousins and entire family circle.
