We are sad to announce the passing of Craig Allan Barnes of Marshall Arkansas. He was born in Wyandotte, Michigan in 1940 to Arnold and Dorothy (Cannon) Barnes. He passed peacefully at his favorite place in the world - his beloved home on Bear Creek in Marshall, Arkansas.
He is survived by his son & daughter in law Doyle & Amanda Barnes of Leslie, Arkansas, his daughter & son in law Tara & Keith Farlow of Fayetteville, Arkansas, and his favorite people - his grandchildren Keara, Knox & Kinsley Farlow, and Daisy Purcell.
He is also survived by his longtime companion Mary Ryan & her daughter & son in law Laura & Dino Purcell, and his sister & brother in law Gloria & Tom Schonfeld of Southgate, Michigan & their extended family.
He was passionate about woodworking & playing music. He loved good food, good drink & a good time. He lived a long, happy, free life in the home he built with his own hands & lots of help from his many friends. His family plans to say their goodbyes in a private ceremony.
