Leonard Darrell Barnes, age 72, was born on September 17, 1946 to the late Jesse L. Barnes and Marie M. Barnes and joined them in Glory on December 30, 2018. He was a lifelong resident of LaGrange, Georgia. Darrell was a Charter Member of Friendship Baptist Church, North Barnard Ave, LaGrange, Georgia. In recent years, he faithfully attended Mt. Hope Baptist Church, Warm Springs, Georgia. His hobbies were important to him and brought many hours of pleasure and contentment, especially after the passing of his parents. His recent travels reminded him of vacations and bus tours he enjoyed in past years.
Survivors include numerous uncles, aunts, and cousins, especially Jimmy and Brenda Morris and Emory and Bobbie Jean Clay. Darrell was loved by everyone who knew him. We all will love and miss him until we meet again in Heaven on that glad reunion day.
Graveside services were held on Wednesday, January 2, 2018 at 1:00 PM at Shadowlawn Cemetery. Visitation was from 12:00 until 12:50 PM at Higgins LaGrange Chapel. The ministers were Rev.

In lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Georgia Sheriffs Youth Foundation, a favorite charity or ministry organization of your choice in memory of Leonard Darrell Barnes.
