Robert Douglas "Doug" Barnes, 79, of Muncie, Indiana, passed away on September 14, 2023. Born on April 25, 1944, in Muncie, he was the beloved husband of Diana L. Parks Barnes for 52 years.

Doug was a kind, generous, and friendly individual who had a knack for making friends wherever he went. He had a wonderful sense of humor and brought joy to those around him.

For 28 years, Doug dedicated his career to Brodericks, where he made a lasting impact. In his free time, he enjoyed watching Reds baseball, fishing,  spending time with his family, and simply sitting on the porch, appreciating life's simple pleasures.

The cremation is being handled by Parson's Mortuary Home in Muncie, Indiana. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later time.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the American Cancer Society or Muncie Animal Care and Services in Doug's honor.
