Jerry Barnett Obituary
Barnett, Jerry Frederick

Jerry Frederick Barnett took his last earthly breath on July 24th, 2016 after years of fighting lung and heart disease. He was born on May 12, 1943 in St. Louis, Missouri to Helen and William Barnett. Jerry grew up in Jefferson City, MO. His mother was a kindergarten teacher and his father was a traveling salesman. After graduating from Northwestern University, he worked as an engineer for Westinghouse and as a certified purchasing agent for Claudius Peters America, Inc.

After moving to New Mexico, Jerry pursued his passion as a glass artist. He spent many years displaying his artwork in shows across the country, as well as local shows and galleries. He was generous with sharing his techniques with other glass artists.

Jerry was kind and gentle and had a self-deprecating sense of humor. He was a loving husband and father and will be sadly missed.

Jerry leaves behind his loving wife, Jo Barnett, her daughter, Debra and her family. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Lara, his brother, Dick, and his parents.

Services were held Saturday, July 30th at West Mesa Christian Church where condolences may be sent.
