      TURNER: Brian "Barney" R. Ames, Sr., 58, of Turner lost his battle to lung cancer at his home Monday evening, May 12, with his wife and daughters at his bedside. He was born in Attleboro, MA on May 7, 1956 a son of the late Alfred and Lorraine (Pittsley) Ames. He grew up on Cape Cod, graduating from Barnstable High School in 1975 and moved to Maine in the early 80's when he fell in love with the "Maine way of life". He met his wife Linda and they married on September 15, 1984 in Turner. Together they created a life full of family, friends and love. For over 32 years, Brian worked as a truck driver for the Coca Cola Co. and enjoyed his time with them. Barney was known by many and loved by all. He was most known for his grand stature and even larger personality, always with a story or joke to share. He was a lover of outdoor activities. He enjoyed hunting and fishing. Barney always liked spending time at his camp in Eustis where he would go four-wheeling and snowmobiling. He is survived by his wife Linda Ames of Turner, his children; Brian Jr. and his wife Kylee of Arlington, VA, Jessica Ames and her boyfriend Brian of Sidney, and Bethany Ames and her fiancée Nathan of Turner. Barney also leaves behind two grandsons, Connor and Colby as well as his siblings Jacqueline Capute and her husband, Deborah French and her husband and Kevin Ames and his wife and his father-in-law Arlen Jordan; sister-in-law Alison Durgin, and her husband; brother-in-law Ken Jordan and his wife along with many nieces and nephews.
