David Ronald Barnett, aged 78 years, passed away on February 23, 2020 after a short, intense battle with cancer.

Dave is survived by Judy, his wife of 53 years; his brother, Donald (Sharon); two daughters, Jodi Polk (Jay) and Jaime Zevallos (Miguel); sons, Tim, Michael and Dan (Chinenye); grandson, Lucas; and another on the way.

Dave will be remembered for his playful sense of humor and his dedication to family, as evidenced by the gathering from afar of all his children and grandchildren at a moment’s notice. He was best at being an ideal father and husband, but is known for being a dedicated friend and a good neighbor as well. Always ready to help and able to fix just about anything, from cars to pipes to broken hearts, he touched many lives. Those who survive him will feel his loss always.

Per Dave’s wishes, no service is planned at this time. A celebration of his life will be arranged at a later date.

Any donations can be made to the Madrone Hospice House in Yreka.
