Mr. Barnett and I worked together at YKK. He was my supervisor but also was a good friend. Even after I left YKK, Mr. Barnett continued to stay in touch, sending each other Christmas cards for over 10 years. I was sorry to hear of his passing. He will be missed by many.

First of all, I want to say how shocked I was to hear of his passing. This is such sad news. I had the privilege to work with Barnett in the Monofilament plant at YKK. He had a great deal of influence on myself, and without a doubt, I gained a lot of managerial skills from him. Did we always see eye to eye, not always, but I had the upmost respect for Barnett. I use to love all his fishing and other stories he would talk about in the office, not to mention, what a laugh he had. I know how much he loved his family and grandchildren because he talked about them always, especially about taking his grandson fishing. Barnett was a kind and thoughtful man, who will be missed by many. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

Barnett and I worked together at Paragon and YKK. He was highly respected for the way he conducted himself. He and I talked many times about what mattered to him most. He loved his family more than anything. He love to fish with his Grandchildren. He told me many stories about their fishing trips. I count it a privilege to have know him and called him a friend. Remember the kind of man he was and that he loved each one of his family.
