On May 6, 2020, Reed L. Barnes, 68, passed away peacefully at his home in Lebec, California, surrounded by his family. Reed was born on August 22, 1951 in Lancaster, California to William and Eldora Barnes. One of six incredible kids, he was raised on a farm and spent many years working on the farm. He was a member of the Neenach 4-H club and spent many of his younger years actively participating in 4-H and community activities.
