Some quotes from the family: “Barney is our beautiful handsome man who will be with me and his loved ones forever.”

“Someone who rose to the occasion when needed and volunteered when necessary all because he truly cared.”

“Barney was the entertainment at every party even though he was never paid for it.”

“Barney loved to see people happy because he loved people.”

“There are few stars that have shined as bright as Barnabas. He was one of the only people I have ever met who could fill an entire room with people who considered him their best friend.”

“He was the best dad, great husband and superman.”

“He always had a little extra energy left to smile and do a little dance for you, a big dance sometimes. Boy he could dance!”

“I don’t know one person my dad couldn’t make laugh.”

Brown Brothers Painting was his self made business – a trade passed down for three generations. Barney was the love of each of our lives. He touched the community with his huge heart and ability to entertain to tears.
