Tony Barnett Obituary

Tony Barnett son of Leon Goodnight and the late Mattie Barnett, was born January 11, 1966 in Simpson County, Kentucky. Tony was raised by the Late Arthur and Sarah Beasley. He is preceded by his brothers Patrick Barnett, and Juan Barnett. He is survived by his wife Beate Barnett; his daughters Dominique Barnett, Temara Snay, Rebecca Barnett; his son Richard Byrum; his brother Michael Barnett; and his sisters Donna Long, and Richele Barnett Bell. With the dream of becoming a U.S. Marine, Tony took early efforts in school with extracurricular classes in conjunction with  and even played trombone in band. At age 18, Tony was diagnosed with cancer deterring his chances of becoming a U.S. Marine. Two years later, Tony went into remission and was cancer free despite the odds stacked against him. In 1994, he would meet his wife Beate and would eventually wed in 1995. He was told because of his cancer, he would be unable to have children. A miracle set of twins, Dominique and Temara, begged to differ. They would be born later in that year, 7 years before Rebecca would also be born. His career path led him to become an emergency services paramedic. He would commit to his career for 36 years, eventually becoming Assistant Director of Simpson County Ambulatory Services. During this time he helped countless people in the community. Whether it was an emergency run or a community outreach program for his church, Tony was an integral pillar of his community. He would lead men's ministry outreach, and regularly led the coffee corner to his congregation. In February of 2024, he was once again diagnosed with cancer. It was in late stage and inoperable. He passed away peacefully March 6, 2024. His departure leaves a gap in the lives of those he blessed. As he joins his loved ones in the afterlife, we seek to remember his accomplishments and celebrate the life of Tony Barnett.
