I have enjoyed the friendship I had with John for the past five years at the Veterans Center on Sylvan Road. He has a wonderful sense of humor and was so kind. Through these years we all enjoyed John and his team mate and wonderful wife Gayle. He like me believed in Jim Rounsavell 's dream that a community can come together to help these veterans coming home with PTSD. We've all worked hard and John was able to see our success before he passed. My family sends our love to Gayle and those sweet children and grands. (Thank you for being our friend John!)

John Barney was our historian at the Veterans Community Center in Citrus Heights. John started out helping once a week opening the center and closing 5 days a week every other 3rd week plus John took Four thousands picture from the beginning when the center opened. One Christmas John and our other Veteran Gloria had a ball dancing. That was a fun Christmas for all of us veterans. John was a gem to be around. Our Center will miss John and we will always remember him.
God Bless you John. We love you, and we know you will be waiting for all of us as we come home. Rest in peace our Marine and Semi Fi.
