Donald “Don” E. Barnes, 88, of Troy, passed away at 1:14 p.m. Saturday, September 5, 2020 at Storypoint of Troy. He was born March 5, 1932 in Dayton to the late Earl Raymond and Charlotte (Cassell) Barnes. He married Carol Barnes on September 2, 1956 and she preceded him in death, and then married Anna G. Brooks-Barnes on August 3, 1991 and she also precedes him in death.

Survivors include a daughter, Kim Anderson of Vandalia; son, Kevin (Monica) Barnes of Austin, Texas; two step-daughters, Karen (Steve) Magoteaux of Piqua and Lisa (Jeff) Weeks of Pleasant Hill; nine grandchildren, Alicia (Nicholas) Mink, Alex Anderson, Colin and Matthew Barnes, Ken (Amy) Magoteaux, Bryan (Katie) Magoteaux, Kyle (Sarah Jane) Magoteaux, Whitney (Kyle) Selover, and Willie Monbeck; 11 great-grandchildren, also many other relatives and friends. He was also preceded in death by his son-in-law, Gregory Anderson, and his half brother.

Mr. Barnes graduated from West Milton High School in 1950. He was a longtime member of Salem Church of the Brethren in Phillipsburg, and was in the Brethren Volunteer Service from 1950 to 1951. Don served with the United States Army from 1954 to 1956 and was proud to take the Honor Flight from Dayton to Washington D.C. He graduated from the University of Dayton in 1960. He was a department manager for Sears from 1960 to 1963 and went to work for the Dayton Power and Light Company in 1963 as a Commercial Electric Representative and retired from there. He notably worked on the lighting for the Carillon Tower. He was considered a “Holiday Rambler” and had caravanned across the continental United States, he loved to drive a truck for work, or rental cars for a time or his RV across the country. Don enjoyed working for Disney World in his retirement down in Florida. He enjoyed camping in his travels, being in a euchre club with friends for many years, and was an avid University of Dayton basketball fan. Don will surely be missed by his family and friends.
