Roger "Punkin" Barnes Obituary

In loving memory of Roger “Punkin” Barnes, born on April 17, 1948, in Cleveland, Ohio, and peacefully passed away on January 6, 2024. Roger, the oldest child of LV and Vernie Barnes, was the beloved son and cherished brother of Christina McDonald, Francine Warren (deceased), Alfreda Barnes, Ned Barnes, and Jeanette Barnes (deceased). He proudly graduated from Thomas Edison High School.

Roger dedicated his skills to the art of welding, turning it into a lifelong trade that brought him fulfillment and pride. His craftsmanship left an indelible mark on those who witnessed his work.

Family was Roger’s anchor, and his love for them was immeasurable. He is survived by his four children: Allen Gardner, Francine Gordon (Chuck), Chenita Williams-Parr (Christopher) and Derick Bell. Roger’s legacy extends to his 8 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren whose laughter and love brought immense happiness to his life.

In addition to his professional and family accomplishments, Roger was known for his passion for food and his lively presence on the dance floor. His spirit will forever resonate in the memories of those who had the privilege of knowing and loving him.

The repast to continue to celebrate Roger’s life will be held at 3563 E. 80th St., off Union Ave. following the Memorial Service at Mt. Sinai Baptist Church.

May Roger rest in eternal peace, leaving behind a legacy of love, laughter, and warmth.
