  • The memorial service for Scott Matthew Barnes was held Tuesday, August 13, 2013 at St Theodore Catholic Church. Pastor Timothy Reker and Deacon Mike Ellis officiated.
    Scott Barnes passed away unexpectedly in his sleep Thursday August 8, 2013. He was 32 years old.
    Scott was born December 26, 1980 in St. Louis Park and was the son of Jerry and Marilyn (Rutten) Barnes. He lived in several states growing up, including Minnesota, South Dakota and Arizona. He spent time in Redwood Falls and settled in Albert Lea in 1995, and was very proud when he obtained his GED. Scott was united in marriage to Sara Dahmes April 5, 2008 at the First Presbyterian Church in Albert Lea.
    Scott was recently employed with Nelsons Marketplace where he was working with his father. He was a baseball coach for his sons in Albert Lea and was a fan of Minnesota sports. Scott loved grilling, spending time with his children and nieces and nephews, his family, movies  and fishing.
    He was rough on the outside, but on the inside he was a kind hearted, hardworking, devoted father who played practical jokes.
    He is survived by his parents, Jerry and Marilyn Barnes of Albert Lea; former wife, Sara Barnes of Albert Lea; children, Isaiah Wall, Hailey Barnes and Kaidin Barnes of Albert Lea; sister, Kelly (Conrad) Josko of Oskaloosa, Iowa; brother Ehric Barnes of Redwood Falls; nieces and nephews, Hannah, Emme, Max and Juliet Josko and Ryley Barnes; many aunts, uncles and cousins and other loving friends.
    Scott is preceded in death by his grandfathers; Gillette Barnes and John Rutten and grandmother, Marcella Rutten.
    Even after death Scott is still giving. His choice to be a donor was one that will help many people, and will make a difference in their lives.
