Wayne Barnes in his 74th year passed away peacefully at home. Wayne was a remarkable man, who loved to talk about old cars and the good old days. Wayne was the husband to the late Marie Barnes (Irwin). The father to the late Jeff Barnes and to his twin brother Jason Barnes. Wayne will always be remembered for his one liner jokes and his "Hollywood" charm. He will be survived by his daughter in-law Kim Barnes (wife of Jeff Barnes), his son Jason, his Grandchildren, Tate (Shanaki Bell), Jaycee (Jesse Grills) Seth and Chelsea. He will be dearly missed by his Great Grandchildren Aurora, Aries, Wyatt and Ava. Wayne was very proud to be the oldest of 12 children and often shared stories of his parents (the late Donald & Barbara Barnes) and his 11siblings. Wayne will forever be missed by all his brothers and sisters, his in-laws, and his numerous nephews and nieces. A celebration of life will be held on Wednesday May 18th, 2022 at Port Hope Union Cemetery 114 Toronto Road, Port Hope at 1 pm. Wayne has asked that no donations be made in his honor but instead just be "dandy." Wayne will be forever missed and honored by his very large and loving family.
Wayne was a good brother, fun to be with and fun to work with. He had a presence wherever he went, you knew Wayne was there. He was a practical joker in every sense of the word and a good sport when he too was pranked. Dad often said that 'if you haven't something nice to say, then don't say anything at all'. Wayne was the same, having many of the virtues extolled by our parents. Last I saw Wayne with sister Debbie, he was in good spirits, sharing stories, laughing and joking around whilst having a Timmie's coffee and a couple of sour cream doughnuts. Pretty normal if I do say so myself, couldn't have been any better. I'm grateful for that, a good memory now, one I'll have with me for the rest of my life.
You will always be remembered by your sister in law and brother in law john rest in peace
Wayne brought me so much happiness. Some of my favorite memories are riding around in his '56 Caddy and working with him in the 80's delivering phone books. Going into the bar for a lunch break, and what he had in his pocket, was one of the funniest experiences I had in my life.I have so many fun memories of Wayne and it is with a very heavy heart I say good bye and rest in peace my friend and brother. My deepest condolences to the rest of the family. Love Mike & Ivy
Cannot imagine a more interesting, unpredictable and colorful brother! Your quirky sense of humour and brashness were truly unique. Joking around and making people laugh were a big part of your bubbly personality and if a couple of shots were in the mix, we knew to expect the unexpected. Ask anyone who has played golf or sat in a bar with Wayne, and you are sure to hear some pretty amusing stories. Wayne loved pranking anyone he could, often using props such as cleverly hidden whoopee cushions, fart machines and fake vomit. No amount of effort was too much if it got the laugh he wanted. Wayne loved working on cars. His pride and joy was his 1956 Ford and his 66 Impala he called the "sleeper". I still recall the smell of burning rubber when he pulled "smokers" in front of the house. We enjoyed travelling with Wayne and Marie. Wayne certainly made our trips to the Bahamas more interesting with his joking around and crazy antics. We will miss the excitement and unpredictability you brought to us all. You were a great older brother! Love, John and Lynn
