Mechanical  Wonders Of Gary Barnes

Site Dedication

This site is dedicated to the two men who taught and mentored

me at a very young age. The first is my father Howard Barnes

and the second is Mr. Jim Ashlock my 7 th. grade wood shop teacher at Kit Carson Junior High School in Sacramento California. What I learned from my father was refined by

Mr. Ashlock. Mr Ashlock, Jim is what he is called today has been a very close friend to this day. What I learned from these two men set the foundation for my life. Now at 72 years old, I look back at my life and I have no regrets.

 I served my country when I was asked to. I went to war and came home to be a proud veteran.
