Dwayne William BarnesMay 21, 1959 ~ March 15, 2017 (age 57)
Dwayne was born in Galahad, Alberta on May 21, 1959. He was the first son of Rose and Bill Barnes and brother to older sisters Darlene and Christine. He later became a big brother to Dianne, Bruce and Lorraine. The family grew up east of Alliance at Battle Bend. In 1986, he married Yvonne Dykstra and moved north of Brownfield to Sunnyslope Farm. It was there they raised their children; Breanne, Chas and Bettina.
Dwayne was very active in 4-H all of his life. He enjoyed being a part of the community and served on the Brownfield Rec Board for many years. His passions were anything farm related, visits from friends, family, trail-rides, Hardisty Rodeo Weekend, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and curling. He spent many hours in the shop or at the kitchen table trying to fix things that he refused to replace. Dwayne and Yvonne enjoyed wonderful trips with family and friends, but his most treasured times away from the farm were his horseback trips to the mountains.
Dwayne passed away peacefully at the Coronation Hospital on March 15, in the arms of Yvonne and their children.
Dwayne will be lovingly missed and remembered by his wife Yvonne, and their kids, Breanne (Max) and their daughter Collins; Chas (Kally); Bettina; as well as many family and friends.
