No public services are planned for Jerry Barnes, 72, Lawrence, who ‘parked his big rig for the final time’ on Friday, Sept. 13, 2019, at his home.

He was born Mar. 3, 1947, in Lawrence, the son of Matthew L. and Mary L. Sourbee Barnes. He graduated from Lawrence High School.

Jerry worked with his folks at their Texaco station on 6th Street. He later worked for R.W. Harmon & Sons, Lawrence Freight Line, and later became an owner/operator truck driver. He was a big man with a kind heart who would help anyone in need.
