Mr. Barnes, a beloved father of 6 children, was born August 4, 1925 in the little mountain town of Blairsville, GA to Ardella and Hillard Barnes. His deep love of his country was so strong he enlisted into the Navy during WWII as a teen. He left Blairsville after the service in search for a better life in Atlanta. He became a mechanic at Atlanta Paper/Mead Company and worked there over 25 years where he became a member of Local Union 527.
