Lee Andra Barnes was born on February 15, 1968, in Milwaukee, to Leroy and Patricia Marks Barnes. He was a graduate of Gurdon High School and an employee with the City of Gurdon. He was a member of Kingdom Authority Christian Ministries.
Andra was that cool, laid-back friend who was in tune with the latest trends and music. He enjoyed football and was a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan. He made friends easily and never met a stranger. On October 12, 2022, he passed from this life.
He was preceded in passing by his father, Leroy Barnes; and grandmother, Geneva Marks.
He leaves his mother, Patricia Barnes; his children, Armani Barnes and Armari Barnes, both of Gurdon; one sister, Nakia Kennel of Arkadelphia; brothers, David Marks of Fondulac, Wisc., Earvin Barnes and Elander Kennel, both of Gurdon, and Samson (MiMi) of Malvern; two nieces, Mya Hatley and Miracle Simmons; and a nephew, Jaylon Osborne.
