Michael Barnett was a loving father, son, husband, and brother, who impacted the lives of everyone who was fortunate enough to know him. He could be arogant and hard-headed at times, but he was also a gentle man who stood behind the ideals he believed in and the people he loved. Michael loved the outdoors, fishing, and his two dogs, Blue and Bain. He loved spending time with his family, especially his wife, Danielle, and his daughter, Bella, who meant the world to him. Things in life never came easy for Michael, but he still did everything he could to be there for those who needed him, and brought laughter with him wherever he went. On August 2nd, 2016, Michael Barnett took his own life at the young age of 21 by self inflicted gunshot. Even though Michael had many family and friends who deeply loved him, he never tried to reach out to any of us for help. We may never know why he decided to take himself from us that day, but we can honor his memory and do what we can to support his family and his two daughters.
