Phillip Barnes, age 54, of Dothan, Alabama, passed from this life Saturday, March 12, 2022, taking the “Roy Bus” to the Disney of his dreams.
He was born December 8, 1957, at Ft. Rucker, Alabama. His mother was the late Anne H. Barnes and his father was the late Carlton J. Barnes.
Known in the Dothan area as “The Target Man,” Phillip worked for Target as a valued sales and customer service member. He loved the kids that were “good to their mothers/fathers” and always took joy in giving out special stickers.
Formerly a resident of Orlando, he worked there at Home Depot for many years. The job of his heart, however, was working at Disney World where he was a beloved member of the Zoo Club.
He is preceded in death by his mother and father; and his brother, Ricky Barnes of Enterprise, Alabama.
Phillip is survived by his sister, Carla Wheatley and brother-in-law, Ken Wheatley of Hartford, Alabama. There is also a sister-in-law and two nephews.
A celebration of Phillip’s life will be held at Walt Disney World at a later date. In his dream heaven, Phillip is dancing!
Arrangements are under the direction of Magnolia Funeral Home of Hartford, Alabama.
