James C. Barnett – August 14, 2017

James C. Barnett   

January 16, 1943, to August 14, 2017

Jim Barnett died peacefully at his home in Milford, CA at the age of 74 from complications of rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.  He was born in 1943 in Torrance, California.

His childhood was spent in Herlong and Reno and Sacramento, where he married his first wife, and where his daughter Jeanette was born.  He moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1965 to work at United Airlines in various positions.  He was very active in the Machinists Union (IAMAW) and appreciated the benefits and working conditions.  He earned his BA & Master’s Degree in Psychology from San Jose University while working at UAL, and became adjunct faculty at DeAnza Community College, teaching Psychology in the evenings.  Jim retired from UAL in 1998 and returned to Lassen County in 2000, and immediately became adjunct faculty at Lassen Community College, again teaching Psychology.  He enjoyed teaching his students very much.  He also enjoyed playing Texas Hold-Em tournaments and slot machines and making furniture in his “shop” at his home in Milford.

Jim married his beloved spouse Judy and they had 32 wonderful years together in La Honda in the Santa Cruz Mountains and in Lassen County.  He is survived by his beloved spouse Judy Macho Barnett, daughter Jeanette Kjosa (David), grandchildren Dan & Nicole of Tampa, Florida, and is related to many families in Lassen County including the Wiles, Sineriuses, Joys, and Bayleses.  He joked about sitting in Walker’s Café and watching all the cousins drive by.

Jim requested no services.  A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
