Dennis Barney or Elder Barney served in the British South Mission with me. I learned quickly to love the man because he was so kind and thoughtful. He made the mission fun even though we worked hard. I remember him with great fondness

Dear Barney Family,
Dennis was truly a kind and generous person. I only worked for Dennis a short time but have the utmost respect for him and what he has done for the Gilbert community. His vision of what Gilbert "could be" is now a reality for all of us to enjoy every day. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Sister Barney,

I did not know you but I knew Nedra she is in my stake Relief Society and her parents are in the same ward as mine in New Mexico. I feel your loss and sorrow. The day before Brother Barney passed away I lost my own mother to a heart attack. I have visited the singles wards several times and always felt the love he had for us. Though the times of loneliness and sorrow that our families will face I know that our Heavenly Father loves us. May the Lord bless you and your family during this trying time.

Oh Ann,
Darin Nielson emailed us about Dennis. The wonderful video you prepared was very comforting, and though our time with him was not long we join you in grieving and needed comforting.
I remember back in 1965 when I opened the front door of our big, cold, old Victorian house in England and saw Elder Barney and his companion on the porch; I thought, “Now why did they send a cowboy to England?” Which goes to show how little we understand the mind and will of the Lord. We came to know Elder Barney for pure gold, and the work he did as a missionary in England is still bearing fruit.
He and his companion lived with us for a time, and what a blessing that was – at least for us. We loved hearing about their investigators and having some of them over for dinner. I did not take offense at his pulling the bottle of Tabasco Sauce out of his breast pocket and spraying it on whatever I was serving for dinner. I knew he treated all his hostesses the same. Barneyisms are still part of our vocabulary, like “ever so ta.”
I was so impressed to know that he had earned the money for his mission himself. He credited his father, though, and I’ll never forget the story he told of going with his dad to buy a new tractor. He watched as his dad payed for it in cash. They were feeling jubilant on the way home, but when Dennis rolled down the car window and threw out his empty pop bottle, his dad slammed on the brakes, threw the car into reverse, and made Dennis get out and pick it up. “That bottle’s worth two cents!”
I taught the adult Sunday school class in Addlestone Branch. One Sunday, wanting the class members to think about how they would want to be remembered, I invited them to write their own obituary. I think I still have Elder Barney’s at home in my box of remembrance, but I don’t need the copy to remember what he said: after his mission he wanted to go home to Arizona, marry Ann and raise a great big family unto the Lord.
How we’ve loved getting your family picture every Christmas and watching his dreams coming true. And with so much zest and style! You were always at the center of his dreams, Ann, and I have no doubt that in his spare time up above he is preparing another and an everlasting and an eternal mansion for you and yours.
Meanwhile we pray the Lord may comfort you continually.
We send our love,
Elder Felipe y Hermana Barbarita Hale
El Templo Villahermosa, Mexico
