Christopher James Barnett(January 27, 1973 - June 21, 2013)



Christopher James Barnett, known for his easy smile and charm, passed away at the age of 40 in Port Angeles.

He was born in Mobile, Alabama, to Teresa Colene and Thomas Henderson Barnett. His family moved to Port Angeles, and he graduated from Port Angeles High School in 1991.

Chris worked in waste management and for FedEx in Port Angeles.

He married Tiffany Barnett on March 27, 2004. Although the couple separated in 2010, the relationship left Chris with his beloved daughter, Caydence Jade Barnett.

Chris is survived by his parents, Robert and Teresa Beausoleil; brothers Brandon (Cathy) Barnett and Hody Barnett; sister Colene (Scott) Ellis; and his beautiful daughter, Caydence.

He is preceded in death by his father, Thomas Barnett; and grandfather Robert Apage.

Chris was always willing to share his lightning-quick smile with us all. He made people feel instantly at ease. Now Chris is smiling with the Lord. And though he has left us, his memory will live on forever.

Chris had to endure and struggled but had turned the corner and righted his ship.

His beautiful girl, Caydence, will be our look into Chris's eyes, for he loved his daughter more than anything, and she loved her daddy. Our pain will subside, and we know Chris never has to hurt again. We love our son, brother, father and friend to many.

A celebration of Chris's life — of his unparalleled kindness and warmth — will take place at 821 North Gale Street, Port Angeles, at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 29.

Sail on, Chris, and we will see you again in heaven.
