James Leroy "Jim" Barnes
January 28, 1940 - July 21, 2017
James Leroy "Jim" Barnes was born on January 28, 1940 in Nyssa to Roy and Arline Barnes and died surrounded by his loving family at home in Nyssa on July 21, 2017.
Jim spent most of his long and fulfilled life in Nyssa, where he made many lifelong friends. In 1959 Jim married DiAnne Wilson who gave him a daughter, Theresa. He and DiAnne parted ways, and in 1966 Jim married Judy French of Parma. Their daughter Leslie was born in 1970 and three years later their son Roger was born.
In 1972, Jim became a sales agent with Prudential Insurance where he eventually retired after 25 years and several promotions. In 1988, Jim and Judy purchased a 100 year old house in historic Silver City Idaho. He loved working on the house and spending time with other homeowners in Silver City.
Jim faced the end with the same dignity and fortitude that had carried him through some very difficult times he faced in his life.
Jim was preceded in death by his father Roy, brother Roger, and mother Arline. He is survived by wife Judy, daughters Theresa Browne and Leslie Dickerson, son Roger, grandson Kayle Hobbs, granddaughter Elsie Dickerson, and grandson Walker Barnes.
