Duane “Barney” Stephen Barnes of Granville, April 28, 1932 – June 27, 2018

Duane Stephen Barnes, known to many as “Barney,” fell asleep in death on June 27, 2018 at the age of 86 following a lengthy illness.  He grew up in Cincinnati but made his life in Millersport, Ohio with his wife, Phyllis (Parker) Barnes, and their three children.

Duane retired after many years from the J.C. Penney Distribution Center in East Columbus.  In his later years he enjoyed playing golf and spending time with his family, but he most enjoyed reflecting upon the future blessings of the coming Kingdom that Jesus spoke of in his model prayer.  From the time he learned of this Kingdom decades ago until the very end of his life he comforted others with this hope at every opportunity.

He was generous with all whom he loved but none more so than his children, who adore him: Lori Stumpner, Rebecca (Shawn) Trainer, and Andrew (Angelina) Barnes. In addition, he is survived by grandchildren Phillip (Chelsea) Wood and Lauren Trainer, as well as three great-granddaughters; brothers Alexis, David, and Gary; sisters Liela Hucker and Myrna Glendenin. He is also survived by those thought to be friends but known to be family, including Martha Carroll and Donna Walters. Duane loved his entire family of faith in the Millersport/Buckeye Lake Park congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Preceding him in death were his beloved wife of 46 years, Phyllis; parents Alexis and Helen (Laugel) Barnes; sisters Alta Montgomery, Shirley Bailey, Helen May Conley, Rosalie Brown and infant sister, Margaret; as well as dear sisters and brothers-in-law.

Sincerest thanks to all at Middleton Senior Living in Granville, Ohio for their compassionate care of our father in his later years, as well as Capital City Hospice.

Calling hours are Sunday, July 1, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Brucker & Kishler Funeral Home, 985 N. 21st Street, Newark, Ohio.  Graveside service will take place Monday, July 2, at 10:00 a.m. at Fairmount Cemetery, located at Route 40 and Fairmount Roads, Licking County; Brother Herbert Uhrig officiating.

His children look forward to reuniting with him and their mother soon in God’s promised new world spoken of at 2 Peter 3:13, “But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell.”
