Sam Barnett was born on May 19, 1943 in El Dorado, AR. He left this earth on April 17, 2012 in Houston, Texas after a long battle with cancer.

Sam was an entrepreneur and craftsman owning a sheet metal/HVAC business for over 20 years. He also worked as a rural mail carrier for more than 20 years until his retirement in 2005. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved hunting and fishing. He always said that when the dogwoods are blooming, the catfish are biting; when the crimson clover blooms, the brim are biting. He enjoyed being outside and working on anything you would put in front of him, which happened a lot because his family considered him a Master of all trades.

Sam did so much as a son, brother, husband, and dad. He was a loving companion and mentor and always a source of strength and motivation to his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Willie F. Barnett.

He is survived by his mother: Edna Juanita Barnett of Ruston, La; wife of 21 years: Mary Coody Barnett of Monroe; sister: Billie Ann Mays of Arcadia, LA; brothers: William Barnett and wife Margie of Minden, LA, Dr. John W. Barnett and wife, Gail of West Monroe, LA; son: Samuel James Barnett of Colorado Springs, CO; daughters: Jon' Hashimoto and husband, James of Ruston, LA, Andrea Ruhl and husband, Patrick of Monroe, Reagan Sims of Washington, D.C. and six grandchildren: Alex Ruhl, Jacob Hashimoto, Lucas Hashimoto, Lauren Ruhl, Rylie Ruhl, and Mia Hashimoto.
