Mr. Shawn Jay Barnes, age 46, of Douglasville, Ga, passed away on Sunday, June 21, 2020. He was born in Rapid City, SD on August 11, 1973. Shawn, or Blue Eyes as some of his friends called him, was a natural born leader who always put everyone else before himself. He was very creative and funny. He always had a smile on his face. Shawn was family oriented and enjoyed going out with a group of his friends to go off-roading in side-by-sides. Needless to say, he loved being outdoors and camping. Outside of fun time, Shawn took his work very seriously. He had been an employee of Home Depot since he was 18 years old and achieved the Store Manager position within the company. He will be so very missed by all who knew him and loved him.
Preceding him in death were his brother, Ryan Barnes and his maternal grandparents, Louie and Elaine Oyler.
Surviving are his mother, Connie Barnes; his son, Austin Barnes; his sister, Jaime Barnes; nieces and nephews, Kelsey Barnes, Brittany Rogers, Breanna Rogers, and Ryan Barnes; his great-nieces, McKenna Baxter, Hayzel Barnes, and Karsyn Pitts; and numerous other loved ones, family, and friends.
In accordance with his wishes, Shawn will be cremated and the family has no services planned.
