Barnes of Visalia, CA, Sarah Adame of Oregon, eight grandchildren, and many great grandchildren.  He is also survived by one sister, Jeannie (Caudle) of Visalia CA, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, Glenn Barnes and Lula M Stout Barnes, spouse, Cheri St Germaine, and brother, Pat Barnes.  

Rick has been cremated and services will be held at a later date.  Memorials may be directed to Heartland Humane Society.  Online condolences may be left for Ricks family at  Arrangements entrusted with Sinnott Funeral Home in Ottumwa.
