Jack Barnes, 84, of Marietta, GA, went home to the Lord on Saturday, May 30, 2020. Born in Colquitt County, Georgia, Jack was the oldest son of J.R Barnes and Jewel Tillman Barnes.

He and the love of his life, Hilda Mae Strickland, were united in holy matrimony for 65 years. This union was blessed with two loving daughters, Jacqueline Ann Barnes Yarbrough and Susan Rená Barnes Cozart. Jack and Hilda spent many years building their dream home, spending time with their children and grandchildren and traveling.

Jack was a self-made man—committed to a life of learning and hard work. He proudly served our country in the United States Air Force, which began his career as a computer engineer. He was a man who loved his family, loved his work, loved his friends and loved the Lord.

Jack was a wonderful and devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. His life and influence will forever remain in the lives of all who knew him.

Jack is preceded in death by his parents, J.R. Barnes and Jewel Tillman Barnes, his brother Raymond Barnes, and his sisters Nellie Barnes Roland and Carolyn Barnes House. He is survived by his devoted wife, Hilda; his two daughters, Rená, and Jacqueline, his grandchildren, Brian Charles Yarbrough, Thomas Garrett Yarbrough, Glyn Ellen Cozart Chaney and Jack Dial Cozart. He is also survived by four great grandchildren, Cameron Charles Yarbrough, Hayden Rose Yarbrough, Hadley Ann Yarbrough and Harper Grace Yarbrough. He is also survived by his sister, Betty Sue Barnes King and many nieces and nephews.

Jack, you were the best brother-in-law! We always had so much fun when we were together. Whether playing board games (usually scrabble, and you always won!), celebrating birthdays, Christmas family gatherings, ringing in the New Year!!, eating a meal together or just visiting. We were blessed that we got to attend church together, that was special for us. Enjoy your Heavenly Home, and we will see you when we get there!

Hilda, Jacqueline, Rena and families, we love all of you, and we are here for you if there is anything we can ever do for any of you.

I had the pleasure and honor of meeting Mr. Jack Barnes, while he and Hilda lived here at Atherton Place. He was a very nice man, always smiling and very polite. My condolences go out to Ms. Hilda and her entire family, may our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ start the healing process and watch over everyone during these difficult times.

God Bless,

Jack was a very kind and special man to all of us at Atherton Place. A day did not go by that he did not share a smile and a kind word with someone here. Our prayers go out to all of Jack's family and friends.
