|Barnes, Francis Michael
Birth: 1958-10-10 in Leonardtown, Maryland
|On Saturday, January 28, 2012, Francis Michael Barnes, also known affectionately as "Spot," 53 of Hollywood, MD, peacefully answered the Lord's call to come home to Glory. Francis was born October 10, 1958 in Leonardtown, MD, the last of five children born to the late Emmett Hamilton Barnes and Agnes Hortense Hebb Barnes.|
Francis received his elementary and secondary education in the St. Mary's County Schools of Benjamin Banneker Elementary, Leonardtown Middle and Chopticon High School. Francis graduated in the Class of 1976 from Chopticon High. He also attended Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD. For many years, Francis was employed with the U.S. Government, where he worked with the U.S. Bureau of Public Debt as an account technician.
Francis enjoyed sports. In his early days, Francis played youth league baseball on several teams in St. Mary's County. Francis' two favorite positions were pitching and shortstop. As an adult, Francis switched to playing softball. He played softball with various teams in his hometown as well as in Washington, D.C. When Francis' job relocated to West Virginia, Francis began his career as an umpire and started officiating softball games in West Virginia. Francis had a hearing problem but some of you who had your games officiated by him probably thought he needed glasses too.
Francis also loved to fish, cook, and party. Francis was an avid Oakland Raiders fan, much to the dismay of his three brothers who rooted for the Washington Redskins. But one of Francis' favorite pastimes was gardening, which he inherited from his Dad. Each year, Francis planted and harvested a wide variety of vegetables and herbs that he shared with family and friends. Most summer days and late in the fall when he wasn't at a family function, a softball game or in the community, you could find Francis in his garden.
Francis is survived by his mother Agnes Hortense Hebb Barnes; his two children: Myia Washington and Davarea Barnes; his brothers: William (Rosetta) Newport News, VA; Emmett Roanoke Rapids, NC; and, James (Joyce) Lanham, MD.
Francis also leaves to cherish his memory: his Godfather and Uncle Francis X. Hebb; Godson and Nephew Jason Henry Matthews; Goddaughter Janiqua Robinson; Nieces: Shena Matthews and Monique Barnes; Nephews: Marvin Lawrence, Eric Barnes, Shawn Barnes, Ryan Barnes; Grandnephews Daquan Barnes and C.J. Lawrence. A void will be left in the hearts of many of Francis' friends and family members, especially a very special friend Angela Jordan; his very special cousins: Lisa Thomas, Mary Catherine Thomas, Karen Wilson, Maurice Robinson, Charles Barnes, Tom Hebb, Peter Hebb, Brian Hebb, and Larry Fenwick; his Aunts: Mary Gough, Linda Dyson (Preston), Ella Robinson, Joyce Barnes; and, his Uncle Joseph (Mary).
In addition to his father, Francis was preceded in death by his sister Lucy Barnes Matthews.
Family will receive friends on Friday, February 3, 2012 from 10:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. in St. Aloysius Church, Leonardtown, MD. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by Reverend John Dakes at 11:00 a.m. Interment will follow in Queen of Peace Cemetery, Helen, MD.

|Schadegg, Lawrence Martin
Birth: 1944-08-30 in Vallejo, California
|Lawrence M. Schadegg, age 67, died on January 27, 2012, at his residence in Solomons, Maryland, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Vallejo, California, he is the son of the late Alfred Henry Schadegg and Leona Rosetta Reed Schadegg.|
After graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1969, Larry completed graduate school achieving his master's degree in physics. He then completed flight training and was assigned to EA-6B Squadrons VAQ-131 and VAQ-134. He was deployed to Vietnam from 1972 to 1973, and upon his return was named the EW Project Officer at the Patuxent Naval Air Station from 1974 through 1976. From 1976 through 1978 Larry was the Tactical Action Officer for the Carrier Battle Group Staff, and in 1978 he resigned his commission as Lieutenant Commander and became one of the founders of PRB, Inc.
PRB began with an employee population of 5 people and very minimal sales in its founding year of 1977 and from 1978 through the present Larry has provided entrepreneurial leadership and focus that has resulted in the increased employee population (now nearing 400 people) and annual sales of over $60 million due to his stellar leadership and focus.
Larry's success can be attributed to his focus on providing the warfighter with capabilities needed to execute their missions. In addition, his entrepreneurial spirit enabled the growth of NG PRB Systems from nothing to a healthy, growing and viable business which NGC acquired in 2000. He is a true leader and visionary.
In addition to his career pursuits, Larry served in the local community on the Hospital Board and as President of the St. Mary's County Technology Council.
