On September 29, 2016 Katie Rutledge and Russell Barnes welcomed Adam Roy Barnes into this world along with his older brother, Ethan Blake Rutledge. Adam had a smile that lit up a room and his giggle warmed your heart. Adam loved the sound of his mama’s voice as she sang "Adam's Song" and he shared a special bond in the arms of his daddy listening to Creedence Clearwater Revival. His life was a brief gift to us that will live on, as his heart valves were donated and received by two babies in need.
On March 7th, 2017 Adam was welcomed to his homecoming celebration in heaven by Roy and Cheryl Barnes (Paternal grandparents), Wally and Doris Alden (Maternal great grandparents), William Whitehead (Maternal great grandfather) and an uncle, Brian Barnes.
Adam was loved and will be missed by his grandparents Todd and Lea Ellen Whitehead and Kay-Lynn Alden (Maternal) and Jack and Barbara Winningham (Paternal), Beverly Whitehead (Maternal Great Grandmother) Aunts Chelsea (David) O'Shea, Emma Whitehead, Jennifer (Carl) Renner and Amber (Andrew Smith) Barnes and his Uncles Dylan Whitehead and Aaron (Amyrose) Barnes, and numerous extended family and friends.
Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, March 11th, at Daniel Funeral Home followed by a committal service and balloon release at Lake Cemetery. The family will receive friends and family from 9:00 a.m. until service time.
A Memorial Fund has been set up at Lamar Bank & Trust in the name of "Adam Barnes Memorial Fund." Contributions can be made at the Bank or at Daniel Funeral Home (Please make checks out to the Fund).
