The East Londonderry MP said,
DUP Spokesman on International Development and Cabinet Office
Glenn Barr, or 'Glenny' as he was affectionately known, was moving on from his political involvement as I moved into mine in the late 1970s.
He worked hard at cross community work helping to build capacity in working class unionist areas. Glenn was a tireless campaigner and vigorous in defence of his own views.
Less than three weeks ago, we shared many reminiscences at a family wedding, he will be very sadly missed by us all.
My deepest sympathies go out to his wife, Isa and his children and grandchildren.
