We are saddened to hear about the loss of life fro Harlin G Barnett. He was a huge impact on our lives growing up and really appreciate everything he did for us. He treated my 2 brothers and myself as good as anyone could. I’m happy to remember all the fun things we did, especially the times where he wanted to race on foot. Even when he didn’t win he knew he truly did because of the wonderful memories he created from it. He was a hard worker and instilled that in all of us..he really went out of his way to make the times we had together fun and exciting..I will be forever grateful to him for all he did for us.
Prayers for comfort From the Holy Spirit for you all at the Home going of your dear Dad! We have very fond memories of working for Harlan so many years ago with love- the Capra’s

I’m so sorry for your loss your family is in my prayers
Harlin was an amazing person. He’s been a part of my life for nearly 40 years. I’ll always be grateful for all the things he taught me. Reflecting over the past few days, I realized just how much influence he had in my life. He taught me how to work with my hands, using tools and materials I hadn’t before. He taught me how to be self sufficient and be my own boss. We had many laughs together and many days together driving around in that old Nissan truck, going to and from work. I will miss him. But, I know he’s always there, because I think of him in almost every decision I make. Thank you Harlin. ❤️
