Alro Steel Vice Chairman Barry Glick died Monday, June 21, in Boca Raton, Fla., at age 70.

Barry’s uncle Al Glick and father Robert Glick founded Alro Steel in 1948 in Jackson, Mich. Barry began his career with Alro in 1977 and served as vice chairman for 27 years.

“It is with a heavy heart that I share that Barry, my nephew and vice chairman of Alro, passed away yesterday after battling a long-term illness,” said Al Glick, Alro CEO and chairman. “He means so much to our family and company, and he will be truly missed. Barry exemplified one of my favorite sayings: ‘It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you don’t care who gets the credit.’”

Barry is survived by his wife Debby, two children and two grandchildren.
