The man we called Barnes, Dad, and Papa, was a retired Supervisory Agent in the DEA, lover of sports (Go Mariners!, Go Hawks!), travel, and the outdoors, passed away Tuesday, May 12, 2020, at the age of 77, due to health complications.

Larry Clayton Barnes was born on Tuesday, March 30, 1943, to Jesse Clayton and Maxine M. Barnes in Bellingham, WA. He graduated in 1961 from North Thurston High School in Olympia, WA. In 1965, he graduated from Washington State University, remaining a lifelong Cougar fan. Go Cougs!

Larry proudly worked for the Drug Enforcement Agency for almost 30 years, making many lifelong friends. He worked in Seattle, WA; Los Angeles, CA; Great Falls, MT; Bombay, India; and Spokane, WA. After retiring in 1995, he and Mom moved to Trout Creek, MT, where they partnered with friends and ran a hunting lodge for three years.
