King Barnett, 68, passed away on August 2, 2017. He was born on December 11, 1948 in Topeka, Kansas to Oscar and Mary Barnett. He was one of six siblings. At 18 years old, King enlisted into the Air Force and fought in the Vietnam War. After his service, he went back to school, graduated, and became a proud alumnus from Texas Christian University. King later married his true love Debbye Evans on June 5, 1993 and had three children. Throughout his career, he retired from Fort Worth police department, DA investigator, private investigator, and his own business in bails bonds. King held many titles but his favorite was being a loving husband, father, and grand-father. He enjoyed playing golf, hunting, and fishing. King was liked by everyone because he was always in a good mood and helped anyone he met. He lived life by his own quote, "If you're not having a good day it's your own damn fault." So, he always made sure to keep a smile on his face and have a good day. King will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
He is survived by his wife Debbye Barnett; two sons Gary (wife Keylia) and Michael (wife Muriel); one daughter Tory Armstrong (husband Daniel); three grandchildren Lexi, Eli, Jake; and brother Charles Barnett (wife Debbie). He is preceded in death by his parents Oscar and Mary Barnett and siblings Margaret Barnett, Mary Welsh, Barbara Eckhardt, and William Barnett.
