To the Family: I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Bob Barnes. My prayers go out in support of all his family. From 1987 to 2003, Bob was a good friend, business associate and golfing buddy. I moved away from the coast in 2003 and last saw him in the summer of 2005 in his office at Associated Food Equipment. I am so sorry for your loss.

To all the family and friends of Robert, my deepest heartfelt condolences, and sincere apologies for not being able to attend the funeral. Although I had not had regular contact with him since I moved to Los Angeles, some 30 years ago, my young adulthood is filled with fond memories of Robert 'Bobby' Barnes. From camping trips, crawfish boils, and ridiculously fast boat rides and fun-filled nights at the dog tracks, Mardi Gras parades, and trips to New Orleans - All had one thing in common, they were always made fun and funnier with the presence of Robert Barnes. Robert was the first friend I ever had that was a true self-starter and born businessman. When we were 18 and 20, I started noticing Robert never appeared in the same car, twice. I also noticed the cars were getting nicer and nicer which was odd because he didn't have a job-job at that moment in life. When he told me he was buying newer cars cheap, detailing them, personally, and flipping them quickly, and banking the cash, I thought he had figured out some used car Einsteinian conundrum loophole type situation that would eventually lead to him owning a priceless Rolls Royce, and retiring a genius! When he became my boss, Robert would spend three minutes in the morning telling me my assignments for the day, and then five minutes joking around. In the front, he was Robert Barnes, VP of Sales, in the warehouse he was Bobby the kid who loved to laugh. The Bobby I knew was a fun go-getter who was fearless. Our group of friends used to call him "swivel-hips" because unlike most of us who were either "too cool" or just plain afraid, Bobby would get out on the dance floor and dance. And not just a little, but a LOT! And although we all had fun ribbing him mercilessly about his hop-swiveling ways, the truth is we admired him. Although he was only a year or two older than us, truth is Bobby was far more responsible and mature than most us boys in public, yet managed to retain his childlike ability to laugh and get just plain goofy in private. So long, Bobby, we will catch up with you on the other side... Where you will surely arrive in a brand new used Rolls, and teach us all your patented "slippery boot" technique on the main dance floor in Heaven's Honky Tonk. God rest and keep you till then, brother. :)
