Mick passed away peacefully on March 7, 2013 in Bakersfield, CA at the age of 85. Mick was born
on January 22, 1928 in Taft, CA. He was preceded in death by his parents Hap and Kat Barnes,
two daughters Candy and Sue. He is survived by his wife Alice, son Mel Garges, a brother Don, 5
grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.
Mick’s family and friends gathered in his honor for a wonderful “Celebration of Life” made possible by
Dreamcatchers. Mick was able to recite some of his best poetry! Which we will keep in our hearts and
memories for ever.
There will be no service and internment will be at the Bakersfield Veterans National Cemtery.
In lieu for flowers the family asked that a donation to the SPCA be made instead.
