“Earlier, I attempted to speak with him through sign language; but, he is not a very talkative person. After I was successful, he pretended to have vision problems. I believe he deceived me once again as well “ Dorothy said.
His secret was revealed when Dorothy Dawson saw a YouTube video of Barry singing at a karaoke bar. Frustrated with his deceitfulness, she decided to go to court.
However, Dawson’s attorney, Robert Sanchez, claimed that his client did not wish to offend or cheat his wife and explained why their marriage had existed for 62 years.
“Mr. Dowson is pretty quiet and not particularly talkative, but his wife, Dorothy, is extremely chatty. If he had not pretended to be deaf, the couple would have divorced 60 years ago. In such a sense, he did it for her and his family,” he said.
