Longtime former Comporium Communications president Frank Barnes junior died Sunday at Piedmont Medical Center, one day after celebrating his 91st birthday.
Just last month Frank, his brothers Ed and John and cousin Lad were given Lifetime Business Achievement Awards by the York County Regional Chamber.
Comporium executive vice president and Chief Operating Officer Glenn McFadden says it’s hard to put into words what the four men meant to the company.
McFadden says the Barnes were always at their best when things were at their worst.
McFadden says every Comporium meeting began with a prayer.
He says Frank Barnes junior, his brothers and cousin never sought recognition or praise and were humbled when they were honored with anything.
Visitation will be held at the Barnes family home at 1124 Evergreen Circle on Tuesday from 4:00-7:00pm. A Celebration of Life service will be held to honor Mr. Barnes at Westminster Presbyterian Church on Wednesday at 2:00pm with internment following at Laurelwood Cemetery in Rock Hill.
Special guests pay tribute to Mr. Barnes during Palmetto Mornings:
