Donald was born on March 6th 1978 in Lawton, Oklahoma to Clark and Bobbie Barnes.  Donald married Kristi Carey on March 13, 1999 and to this union was born Daniel Thomas and Katrina Jolee (Katie.)  They were married 24 years and were best friends until his death.  Donald graduated in 1996 from Alex High School in Alex, Oklahoma.  He then attended OSU IT in Okmulgee, Oklahoma and graduated in 1998.  He then started his life long career as an electrician working for Wolverine Tube, Berry Plastics and AEP-PSO.  He excelled at his trade for over 20 years. He knew everything and would never let you forget it.  He was always willing to help anyone anytime, just out of the kindness of his heart.  He was the best father his kids could have ever asked for.  He was also a very faithful son and loved his parents and brother Aaron with all his heart.
