Visitation for Kohnell Marcus Barnes, 90, of Ferriday, LA will be held at New Harvest Assembly of God in Monterey, LA on Thursday, January 7, 2021 from 6pm-8pm. The family asks that all attendees please wear a mask.

Kohnell was born Saturday, May 3, 1930 in Baker, FL and passed away on Monday, January 4, 2021 in Ferriday, LA. He proudly served his country in the United States Army Air Force Corps. Kohnell was a member of New Harvest Assembly of God and loved the Lord. He attended church regularly up until March 2020 when the pandemic forced him to stay home for his safety. Kohnell loved animals, especially his two beloved dogs Rambo and Buddy and all those that went on before him. He had the most gentle soul and never minded lending a helping hand. Every second of his life, he lived to the fullest. Kohnell not only enjoyed his life, but he made sure everyone around him did as well. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, friend, and so much more. Kohnell was loved and will dearly be missed.

He is reunited with his parents, Lunnie Barnes and Lillie Richards Barnes; son, Gary Kohnell Barnes; daughter, Thersea Marteal Barnes; and his siblings, Chrystelle Brannon, Ernestine Jones, Pomelia "Barney" Barnes, Rhett Barnes, and Durell Barnes.

Kohnell leaves behind his wife of 25 years, Kathy McGowan Barnes of Ferriday, LA; daughter, Katrina Currie & her husband Ray of Opp, AL; three step-daughters, Cyndee Larsen & her husband Richard of Brazoria, TX, Tammy Moore of Crestview, FL, and Crystal Rodriguez & her husband Rudy of Vidalia, LA; six grandchildren, Jonathan Currie and his wife Christy, Dustin Larsen, Darren Larsen & his wife Brooke, Derek Larsen & his wife Rebecca, Austin Moore, and Christopher Schiele; ten great-grandchildren; and his special neighbors of Robbins Island. He also leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
