Harold passed from this life on Feb. 12, 2013. He was born on Dec. 4, 1933, to Annis Peek Carnes and Venus Oram Carnes in Red River County, Texas. He was a faithful Christian, worshiping with the Indiana Avenue church of Christ in Lubbock, Texas, after having served as an elder with the Caprock church of Christ for 28 years until its closing in 2008. He served in the United States Navy from Nov. 1955-Aug. 1957. He attended Texas Tech University and graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration with a major in accounting in 1962. He was a practicing certified public accountant in Lubbock from 1962 until his retirement in 2006. Harold is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Joan Duncan Carnes; daughter, Patti Carnes Roberson and husband Richard of Dallas; sisters, Nina Carnes Mayfield and husband Bobby of Lubbock, Jo Carnes Adams and husband Bill of Kerrville, Texas, and Nannette Carnes Oswalt and husband Jim of Lubbock; brother, Bobby Dan Carnes and wife Dottie of Mabank, Texas; granddaughters, Erin Roberson Holland and husband Clayton of Saint Marys, Ga., and Kasey Lane Roberson of Denton, Texas; and the sparkle of his life, great-granddaughters, Leah Belle and Emma Jean Holland. He also leaves behind many, many brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews, and cousins who all loved him dearly. He was preceded in death by his parents, V.O. and Annis Carnes. Harold was an avid gardener and loved the outdoors. If you happened to be driving down Flint, you would most likely find him in the front yard with a rake in hand, his big straw cowboy hat on his head and ALWAYS whistling a tune. But most importantly, the most profound love of his life was his love for the Lord, Jesus Christ. The legacy he leaves behind will forever be that he was first and foremost, a Christian.
