The Lord blessed this earth with Tysis Shamar Barnes on September 13, 2000. He was one of two loved children born to Taquesee Barnes. Tysis accepted God at a young age and actively worshiped with the First Missionary Baptist Church in Tensaw, AL. He impacted many lives and everyone he came in contact with, was met with a joyful conversation. His smile, unique personality and charismatic energy, made him someone that others enjoyed being around. Tysis could easily brighten anyone’s day with just a smile.
Trusting the Lord, he was excited about the word of God, and in his own way, delivered inspiring sermons to whomever would listen. He had Faith in God and with that Faith, he fought through all of life’s stumbling blocks. Tysis never allowed his health challenges to dampen his spirit or dim his light. He was brighter than ever with each morning the sun shined. Each day, he would rise, early, to simply be one with the Lord and the day that he was blessed with.
He received his early education at Delta Elementary School and graduated to Baldwin County High School, where he was a well-known and much loved student. Tysis proudly represented in the Special Olympics as a “thrower.”
In the afternoon hours of Monday December 27, 2021, Tysis had delivered his final testimony, sent up his last prayer and shared his brightest smile here on earth. He transitioned from earth to reward and received that sweet peace that can only be found in his Savior’s arms. He was met at the gates of Heaven by his grandparents: Amos Barnes, Sr., Serena Carter and John Carter, Sr., and great uncles: Freddie Carter, Herman Carter, and Willie Billy Carter. Oh what a glorious day! They rejoiced and held him. He is resting with those loved ones, who have gone on ahead of him.
He leaves many to cherish his memory: his loving and devoted mother: Taquesee Barnes of Bay Minette, AL; his brother: Questrus Barnes of Bay Minette, AL; a caring great-grandmother: Ida Lee Barnes; grandparents: Willie (Bertha) Barnes; one aunt: Lateedra Barnes; uncle: Derrick (Rachael) Barnes; his niece: Tanyla Barnes; and two god-mothers: Ruby Smith and Monique Hayden all of Bay Minette, AL; a host of cousins, great aunts, great uncles, other loved relatives, a dedicated church family, community, many friends and schoolmates.
