Barry was an actor born in New York City on April 3, 1946, but mostly worked behind the camera as a writer.
He often kept a low profile despite being a part of Hollywood, but was well known for his works such as Ladies Game, Legal Tender and Hour Magazine.
Barry married Tanya in 1974 following a whirlwind romance after they met waiting in line to watch a movie.
It was she who went down on one knee to ask for Barry’s hand in marriage and proposed to him at a subway station.
How did Barry Roberts die?
Barry died on June 15, 2006, in Los Angeles aged just 60 years old.
Tanya famously left That ’70s Show in 2001 to care for him after he became terminally ill.
Barry endured a four and a half year battle with encephalitis, a condition that is categorised by inflammation of the brain, often due to an infection.
After Barry died Tanya started dating Lance O’Brien.
Did the couple have children?
Tanya and Barry were happily married for 32 years before he sadly passed away.

Is Tanya Roberts still alive?
Tanya Roberts passed away just 24 hours after her publicist had mistakenly announced that the actress had died at the age of 65 on January 4, 2021.
The actress “collapsed after walking her dogs on Christmas Eve” and the rep told TMZ that the legendary star was “put on a ventilator, but never got better”.
However, it emerged that Tanya was alive, but remained in a serious condition in a Los Angeles hospital.
Her partner Lance was filming an interview with Inside Edition, when it was confirmed the actress was still ALIVE.

Publicist Mike Pingel told the PA news agency: “It does not look good.”
