Barnes, Robert Greeley
DOB 11/18/1930 ~DOD 6/26/2007 CT
Robert Greeley Barnes, "Bob" or "BB", born on November 18, 1930, unexpectedly passed away on Tuesday, June 26, 2007. Bob grew up in Ohio and Michigan. He graduated from The United States Naval Academy in 1953 and fulfilled his first dream of flying fighter jets. He then went on to pursue his second dream and lifelong journey to find a solution for resolving conflict in the world through peaceful means. Bob pursued this quest through the U.S. State Department's foreign aid program in Central America, Boeing Corporation, and ultimately academia, after receiving a Ph.D. in World Politics and International Business. Bob's last post was the American University in Cairo, Egypt, focusing on teaching American management techniques to Egyptian businessmen. Bob is known by those who love him, as a man with a huge heart, always reaching out to help those in need. Bob also loved music and dancing. His favorite song writer was Burt Bacharach and his favorite song "What the World needs now is love sweet love" and an old Dean Martin tune, "I've got my love to keep me warm' was a close second. Bob was a spiritual man who believed in living his life according to the Golden Rule. Bob is survived by his wife Patricia and two children Melinda and Chris. A celebration of Bob's life will be held on Friday June 29, 2007 at 4pm at the First United Methodist Church, 5510 North Central Avenue, 602-263-5013. Charitable donations can be made to Arizona Interfaith Movement, 602-277-2484.
