Mr. Kenneth Lynn Barrett, age 62, of Abingdon, Virginia, passed away Sunday (August 23, 2020) in a Bristol, Tennessee hospital. He is now in the presence of the Lord and no longer suffering or in pain. Born May 12, 1958 in Russell County, Virginia, he was a son of Donald Lee Barrett of Honaker and the late Betty Lou Helton Barrett. He was of the Baptist faith and very musically talented. A 1976 graduate of Honaker High School, he had lived most of his life in the southwest Virginia area. He was a certified diesel mechanic, had formerly owned and operated a golf cart repair shop, but had spent most of his life as a truck driver, traveling most of the United States. He had a very loving and caring heart, always putting others needs ahead of his own. He believed in showing oneself friendly, never meeting a stranger.
In addition to his mother, he was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Benjamin Franklin and Pearl Sauls Barrett, maternal grandparents, Archibald Riley and Ideal Hannah Helton, and his father-in-law, Bill Kegley.
In addition to his father, survivors include his loving wife of forty-two years, Nancy K. Barrett of the home; two daughters, Lori Brewster and husband, John of Honaker and Kristy Domby and husband, David of Lebanon; three grandchildren, Madison Ramsey, Ayden Domby, and Emma Asbury; two siblings, Donald Barrett, II, and Lynda Davis and husband, Steven; mother-in-law, Betty Lee Kegley; sister-in-law, Kathy Crabtree; brother-in-law, Bill Kegley, Jr.; canine companion, Dixie; several nieces, nephews, cousins, and special friends also survive.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to his caregivers at Bristol Regional Medical Center, especially his nurse, Angela, and respiratory therapist, Lee.
Funeral services will be conducted at 11:00 AM Wednesday in the Honaker Funeral Home Chapel, Honaker, Virginia with Bro. Todd Asbury officiating. Interment will follow in Ketron Memorial Gardens at Lebanon, Virginia.
Pallbearers will be John Brewster, David Domby, Bobby Joe Clark, Anthony Barrett, Benjamin Barrett, and JR Crabtree.
The family will receive friends at the Honaker Funeral Home after 6:00 PM Tuesday.
