Obituary for Craig Scott Barnes

Craig Scott Barnes, age 59 of Stanton, beloved husband, inspiring and devoted dad, and fun loving papa, passed away Saturday, February 23, 2019 at his home.  He was born October 5, 1959 in Portland, MI.  He graduated from Greenville High School in 1978.  In 1977, he met the love of his life, Marge Barnwell.  They were married in 1980 and together enjoyed 38 years of love, happiness and laughter.  Craig had many jobs over the years, but the most notable were maintenance/animal control for Montcalm County and maintenance director for Stafford Communications.  Craig served on the Stanton City Council and Stanton Planning Commission, and ran the Stanton Old Fashioned Days for several years. He also coached several years of Little League baseball, and enjoyed restoring and painting old cars in his garage at home. His greatest joy was his family, especially his children and grandchildren. There was nothing more in the world he enjoyed than teaching and showing his grandchildren something new or interesting that he found that day.  Craig had a love for rock and roll and was known to crank it up with a cold one in hand.  He enjoyed his garden and bonfires with his family.  Craig is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Marge of Stanton; children, Jason (Amber) Barnes of Stanton, Melissa Burke (Joseph Di Noto) of Texas, and Jeffrey (Hollie) Barnes of Carson City; grandchildren, Alexa and Brooke Burke of Texas and Hunter Tulppo of Belding. His mother, Kay Barnes of Greenville, also survives him.  He is also survived by several extended family members and close friends.  He was preceded in death by his daughter, Jessica Kathleen Barnes; father, Richard F. Barnes; brother, Ricky Barnes; and father-in-law and mother-in-law Tom and Kay Barnwell.  Visitation will be held at Hurst Funeral Home Wednesday, February 27 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm with private family services following.  A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
