After a divorce in 2004, Barney met his sweetheart online at an LDS single’s website and in June 2005 Barney and Pamela were married and were sealed for time and all eternity in the St George, Utah LDS Temple. They lived in New Harmony, UT and St George, UT before retiring in Sun City, AZ to be near Pamela’s sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren. They were married for 14 years before Barney’s “graduation”.
Barney was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served in several callings such as Stake Missionary, Sunday School President and High Priest Group Assistant .

Barney was a good friend of mine since 1993 when I started working at Reddaway Truck Line. I’m not sure where the photos I uploaded ended up but one photo is of Barney holding my newborn daughter Lyndee (who is now 22 years old). The other photos were taken at the Reddaway terminal and at the hotel in Medford, OR that we spent many days at sleeping before our return trips to Seattle. Barney and I spent many nights chatting on the CB radio and later on cell phones as we made our trips. He was a good man with a heart of gold. After he retired we would catch up with each other by phone about once a year. I am glad I got to speak with him in June and we had a lot of good laughs talking about our old times on the road. He will be missed. I am proud to call him my friend and look forward to seeing him again someday in a better place.
