Posted: November 5, 2012 by Jared Field in High School

ABC 12 reporter ,and one of the area’s most ardent supporters of high school athletics, Ryan Slocumb, paid tribute to Dave Barns on Sunday night, not long after his passing. Barns, the son of Goodrich head coach Gary Barns, succumbed to cancer Sunday morning after a heroic and very public battle with the disease over the last year and a half.

Barns, a former division I athlete, coached the junior varsity team at Goodrich. He was only 30 years old.

Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers as they grieve such a tremendous loss.

Kudos to Sloc for such a heartfelt obit for someone he obviously cared about a great deal.

    Dave was an inspiration to all Goodrich athletes. He taught me everything he knew and got me into a good college to play ball at. May he rest in peace with the Lord and that we all send our thoughts and prayers to his family. Martian pride will live on in the memory of DB!
