TAPS: DSCM Robert Barnes (Barney) (ret)

Postby arwinnett on Tue Mar 19, 2013 6:32 pm

It's with a heavy heart I post that Barney passed away this afternoon after succumbing to pancreatitis. Barney was well known for his good nature and friendly laugh. He and I taught “A” School together during the early 80’s. After retiring, he worked for years at NOB as a Port Engineer for many CVNs. He will be missed.

Insofar as I know, I never met the Master Chief. But, it's always a sad day when one of our number passes away.
