Dustin Barnes

Oct 16th, 1986 - Jan 6th, 2021

Private family services will be held.  Friends who wish to say goodbye may come to Elmwood Cemetery in Flora after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 12, 2021.


   Dustin Logan Barnes, age 34, of Flora, Illinois, entered eternal life Wednesday afternoon, January 6, 2021, at Deaconess Midtown Hospital in Evansville, Indiana, surrounded by his family.

   He was born into his earthly life on October 16, 1986.

   Dustin loved life and was a kind soul with a huge heart who would give the shirt off his back.  He was loved by all who knew him and will be remembered for being fair, honest, and a straight shooter, sometimes to a fault.  Some of his favorite things were chili-cheese dogs, raspberry Mr. Misty’s, and jelly doughnuts.  Dustin was a talented guitar player and loved playing the drums and singing.  He enjoyed listening to the band The Misfits, spending time with his friends, and cherished time spent with his daughters.  

   He is survived by his parents: Lori (John) Upton of Flora and David (De) Barnes of North Carolina; 2 daughters: Jaselyn Barnes and Ryatt Hutchison; brothers: Trevor (Brittany) Barnes of North Carolina and Layton Barnes (Megan Levitt) of Mason; stepbrothers: Cole Hosselton (Nick Nidey) of Altamont and Logan Hawkins of Flora; nephews: Kylan and Lawson Barnes; grandmother: Mary McPeak of Louisville; and many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins also survive.

   He was preceded in death by his grandparents: Melba and Merle Barnes; grandfather: Charlie McPeak; cousin: Scotty DeVore, and an uncle: Rick Atkisson.

   Private family services will be held.  Friends who wish to say goodbye may come to Elmwood Cemetery in Flora after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 12, 2021.

Dustin, my memories of you when you were small, are forever etched in my heart. ❤️ As you’ve grown, we’ve lost touch over the years but in the recent past, it was good to see you here and there, once in awhile. You would always approach me with “Hi, Grandma”. I only wish we could have spent more time together. I remember the day you introduced me to your girlfriend. That made me feel even closer to you. I’ll always consider you my grandson. Your passing was such a great loss. Your grandpa is heartbroken 💔 as I am. We’ve both cried until there’s nothing left. We are praying for those you left behind. We loved you so much. Until we meet again, we will keep our memories of you close to heart. Love, Grandpa and Grandma (Marie) Thomas
