Obituary

Mr. William George "Billy" Barnes, age 76, of Vevay, Indiana, entered this life on September 10, 1943 in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was the son of the late Charles H. Barnes and Mary Elizabeth (Batchelor) Hamby-Boldery. He was raised in Switzerland County where he attended school and was later united in marriage to Linda Levell. Billy was employed for Randall Textron in Vevay, Indiana for 25 years. He was a faithful member of the Grants Creek Baptist Church since 1969 which he always hitchhiked to the services. He resided all of his life in the Switzerland County community. Billy enjoyed helping others, potluck dinners, drinking coffee and orange pop, telling stories and joking around. Billy also loved collecting metal and tools and junking and trading the metal. When he drove it was always a pickup truck which you could always find appliances and other metals in the bed of his trucks. When his truck broke down, Billy enjoyed walking and hitchhiking and never met a stranger along the way. Billy passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, at his residence.

Billy is survived by his sister, Mary Ann (Hamby) Hopper of Vevay, IN; his nephew, Terry Wayne Hopper and his companion, Stephanie Greenwood of Vevay, IN; his great-nephew, Christopher Wayne Hopper of Madison, IN and his church family and friends he had met along the way.
