Larry Edward Barnett, 54, passed away Wednesday, January 19, 2022, at his home surrounded by family. Larry was born March 7, 1967, to Robert Wayne Barnett and Eloise Godwin Barnett. He was a dedicated husband, father, stepfather and grandfather. He always put his family first. Larry loved Auburn football and telling jokes. You would never see him without him telling a joke or two. Everyone either knew Larry or knew of him. He wore many names such as Larry, LB, Hot-dog, brother, uncle, husband, daddy and pawpaw.
Larry had to leave the furniture industry where he was always a hard worker, hard headed, yet, genuine. He was dedicated not only to his job but to those who worked under his supervision. When he wasn’t at work, you would find him camping, traveling, hiking or watching football. Auburn football. WAR EAGLE!
Visitation will be Friday, January 21, 2022, from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM at the Booneville Funeral Home. Funeral services for Larry, will follow visitation.
