Mr. Marcus Barrett, 54

Marcus Barrett, 54, of Hahira passed away on December 18, 2023. Marcus was born in Tifton on September 3, 1969. At the age of 18, Marcus started working in powerline utilities. He loved his work and was undoubtedly good at it. He knew his job backward and forward. He took much pride in his profession as a lineman and worked hard at Sumter Utilities until his passing. Although he will be greatly remembered for his amazing work ethic, Marcus will be most remembered for his kind and caring personality. He would truly give the shirt off his back for anyone. His big smile, infectious laugh, and good humor will be dearly missed.

Survivors include his wife, Sandy Barrett of Hahira; sons, Shane (Jade) Parramore of Hahira, Griffin Barrett of Hahira, and Chance Barrett of Hahira; grandchildren, Aubryn Parramore and Tristian Parramore; father-in-law, Charles Griffin of Lenox; father and mother-in-law, Gerald and Louise Jones of Lenox; brother and sister-in-law, Stacy (Kelly) Griffin of Adel. Marcus is preceded in death by his father, mother, and brother.

A graveside service was held Saturday, December 23, 2023, at Lenox City Cemetery with Preacher Buck Crumley officiating. Condolences may be expressed to the family online at www.purvisfh.com. Purvis Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
