Published 11-18-12

ENID — Patrick “Pat” Barnett of Enid, formerly of Woodward, died November 5, 2012, at age 78, after a long battle with cancer. A memorial service will be 10 a.m. Saturday, November 24, 2012, at Billings Funeral Home Chapel, with Lawrence Glennie officiating.

Patrick Floyd Shelby Barnett was born March 17, 1934, in Woodward, Oklahoma, to Floyd Edwin and Lucille (Henley) Barnett. He spent two years at Carter High School but came back to graduate from Woodward High School in 1953.

There he met an angel, Ethlyn Fisher, and they were married in Woodward February 5, 1954, at First Assembly of God Church.

They lived in Woodward for many years, then moved to Perryton, Texas, for one year. They came back to Woodward, finally moving to Enid nine years ago.

Pat worked many jobs, but finally found his calling as a salesman. He spent many years at Trego’s, Southwestern Stationary and Bank Supply and owned Barnett Office Supply before moving to Enid. He also managed SPC Office Products in Woodward for several years.

Pat’s hobbies included a lifelong love of music, singing and bird hunting. He was active in Scouts as a Cubmaster from 1969-1971 and was president of Jaycees and AMBUCS, a lifetime member of VFW and a member of Elks and Moose lodges. His military service included Army Reserves, attaining the rank of staff sergeant.

Pat’s most enjoyment in life was singing for others at church, weddings and funerals and taking his kids and grandkids to the lake on his pontoon boat, the USS Popie.

Patrick was preceded in death by his mother and father, grandparents Ed and Aileen Smith, sister Beatrice Bratcher, brother Jerry Barnett and son Kyle Barnett.

He is survived by his loving wife Ethlyn of the home in Enid; daughter Cherie Priebe and husband David; son Kelly Barnett and wife Denise of Moore; sister Naomi Baxter of Illinois; brothers-in-law, J. Dee and Sandy Fisher of Rogers, Arkansas, and Dr. Bill Fisher of Elk City; many nieces and nephews; grandchildren, Michelle (Priebe) and Jeff Harmon, Danielle (Priebe) Willson, Kavan Barnett, Meagan Barnett, Eric Baker, Bobby and Jamie Baker, Ronny Baker; great-grandchildren, Kobe Willson, Kaidrian Baker, Jordyn Baker, Kenzly Baker.

Pat was loved by all who knew him, and he will be greatly missed.
