Henry “Hank” Barnes
Hank (Uncle Hank) to most everyone in Black Diamond died Dec 16th in Enumclaw at the age of 86. He married Bernice Cartwright in 1955 and worked for Kenworth Truck Company retiring in 1990 with 45 years of loyal service.
He was preceded in death by his wife Bernice, mother, father, and brother. Hank is survived by his children Gail Barnes of Amboy, WA, Russell Barnes of Fort Worth TX, Charlotte Berg of Auburn, WA and Mary Lewis of Buckley, WA; two sisters Marie Evens and Hazella Peterson both of Black Diamond, WA; and many grand and great grandchildren.
Hank loved living in Black Diamond and often would say how much he loved his old house which he bought in 1955 and raised his family. Many in town will remember Hank sitting on his front porch and waving to all who honked at him. Hank will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
A celebration of Hank’s life will be held at a later date. Please visit the Weeks’ Funeral Home website at
