In Loving Memory of David Barnes

It's with a heavy heart I announce David Barnes passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 30, 2017 after a long, tough battle with cancer. He was the strongest, toughest, most humble, selfless, hilarious, joyful, amazing man I've ever met in my life. He fought so long and hard and persevered through trial after trial, not for himself, but his wife and daughters. If you had the pleasure of meeting Dave, he would have forever impacted your life. He was so incredibly loved by his wife, daughters, brothers, sisters, family, friends, Untouchable's customers, his doctors, nurses, and even by people who were praying for him who had never met him.

For anyone who knows the Barnes' family, they would never ask of or expect anything of anyone. They always put others needs above their own, and are truly the most selfless, loving family I've ever met. We would love if anyone could contribute to help fulfill their cost of funeral expenses and help ease the financial burden of their medical expenses accrued over the past two years. Any amount of donation, prayers, support, and kind words are appreciated more than you can imagine. Joanne, Samantha, Nicole, and their entire family are forever grateful for all of your prayers, time, and love poured into this tough journey.

During the past two years, the Barnes' family laid down their life for Dave (Mr. Barnes). For two years, they put their life on hold to spend countless hours and moments with their loving father and husband. They never left his side for a moment, taking Dave to doctors appointments, chemo, radiation, hydration, surgeries, and the hospital. Day in and night out, they laid by his side day and never gave up. Their family grew stronger and stronger as they prayed, laughed, cried, stood in the valley of fear with strength, and never once gave up. Day in and day out, their faith became stronger as they loved unconditionally. I truly believe their lives and love resembles this bible verse: John 15: 12-13" 12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I loved you. 13Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. "

David Barnes, we love you more than you will ever know. We will see you in Heaven again one day. Rev 21:4 "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There shall be no more death nor sorrow nor crying...No pain. For the former things have passed away." 

With a grateful heart, thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
