Paul “Paulie” Barnes, 54, of Old Lyme, passed away on Friday, June 25, 2021 at home. He was born on September 27, 1966 in Bristol, son of the late Alvin F. and Priscilla (Hogan) Barnes.
Paulie retired from Tollman Spring. He loved the beach, dancing and music. His heart was open to everyone he came in contact with and he enjoyed making everyone laugh. From his kind heart to his crazy shoes and unmatched socks, Paulie was one of a kind and as he would say “I DO DECLARE”. Paul will be missed immensely.
He is survived by his daughter Chelsea Barnes and her husband Bill Andrulis of Bristol; his siblings Mark Barnes (Jean) of Old Lyme, Jimmy Barnes (Pam) of Bristol, Susan Barnes of FL, Holly LeDuc (Kevin) of Plainville, Lisa Barnes of Bristol and several nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, Paulie is predeceased by his brother Peter Barnes.
Calling hours will be held on Friday, July 2, 2021 from 12PM until 2PM at O’Brien Funeral Home, 24 Lincoln Ave., Bristol, CT 06010.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Bristol Boys and Girls Club, www.bbgc.org/donate.
