According to MSDN:
This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. Use ALTER ROLE instead.
So, I recommend you use ALTER ROLE. To execute the script for each database use the following cursor:
DECLARE @DB_Name varchar(100)
DECLARE @Command nvarchar(200)

DECLARE database_cursor CURSOR FOR
FROM MASTER.sys.sysdatabases

OPEN database_cursor

FETCH NEXT FROM database_cursor INTO @DB_Name

     SELECT @Command = 'use '+ @DB_Name +' ALTER ROLE Sales DROP MEMBER Barry'
     EXEC sp_executesql @Command

     FETCH NEXT FROM database_cursor INTO @DB_Name

CLOSE database_cursor
DEALLOCATE database_cursor
