Ethan Jordan Barnes, 19, Nevada, passed away on Monday, May 15, at his home in Nevada. Ethan was born Oct. 22, 1997, in Nevada, to Thomas Cody Barnes and Stacey Marie Bonine Wolf.

Ethan grew up in Nevada and graduated from Nevada High School in 2016. From the age of 10, Ethan battled epilepsy. He never saw himself as a victim or let his epilepsy define who he was. Ethan could always be recognized by his headphones and the big smile on his face. He was a jokester who loved to make people laugh. Ethan enjoyed music, collecting knives, walking on the beach and playing video games.

Survivors include his mother, Stacey Marie Wolf, of the home; his father, Thomas Barnes, Liberty, Mo.; one sister, Hailey Welch, Liberty, Mo.; maternal grandmother, Susan Larimore (Dan) Nevada; grandmother, Donna Bonine, Dennison, Texas; paternal grandfather, Thomas A. Barnes, Jr. (Debbie) of Walker; maternal great-grandfather, Rodney Edwards, Nevada; aunts, Sara Servos, Nevada, and Carly Toliver, Nevada; uncles, James Barnes, Nevada, and Brandon Plunkett, Tacoma, Wash.; and numerous extended family and special friends. Ethan was preceded in death by maternal grandfather, Martin Bonine; and maternal great-grandmother, Barbara Edwards.
