July 20, 1924 – August 25, 2015
David Barnes was called home in the early morning of August 25, 2015. He was the beloved husband of the late Jean Barnes and father of Angela Barnes (the late John Turcsanyi), Faith Barnes-Lane (Malcolm Lane) and Dr. Claire Barnes (Dr. Ifty Nizami), cherished grandfather of Alexa Barkley (Scott), Stephen Turcsanyi, Julie Turcsanyi and Christian Lane, and great-grandfather of Kaitlyn, Sophie and Cameron Barkley. His passing has left a big hole in our lives. A bombardier in the RCAF’s Bison Squadron during WWII, he was the last surviving child of the late Rev. A. A. Barnes and Adella Davidson, having been predeceased by his elder brother just 11 days ago. A celebration of David’s life will be held on Sunday, August 30th at Dundas Baptist Church, 201 Governor’s Rd. Dundas, at 2:00 pm, a church he attended faithfully for many years. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Dundas Baptist Church or to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton. Many thanks to the staff at Extendicare Hamilton for all their care and support.
