Craig Stephen Barnes unexpectedly entered his heavenly home on Friday, January 6, 2023 at the age of 69. Born on April 1st, 1953 in Covington, KY, Craig was the oldest child of a large and beautiful family in Northern Kentucky. Craig was always known for his humor and, although he had many accomplishments to his name, he always joked about being "C-average" in school. The irony is that Craig was brilliant, taking an innovative, creative, and passionate approach to his career (and everything in his life). A graduate of Holmes High School and Northern Kentucky University, Craig spent early parts of his career as a producer of syndicated television including the Bob Braun Show, before entering into business for himself, owning and operating an advertising and marketing agency for almost 30 years. In his "second act," Craig took his decades of knowledge to mentor other small business owners as part of Agency Management Institute (AMI). The light of Craig's life was his family and friends. He married Kelly Anne Yelton, whom he lovingly called his "beautiful bride" for 38 years, on September 8, 1984. Kelly and Craig had two children. He was an incredible father figure-not only to his children but to their partners, friends, nieces, nephews, and many more he pulled into his extended family. Craig was the best "Pop" to his 3 grandchildren, schooling them early in the importance of laughter, cooking, family, and unconditional love. To know Craig was to love Craig. He was generous in every way: generous with his time, his love, his possessions, his talents. A one-time purveyor of bolo ties and ponytails and a perpetual rocker of a mustache, Craig taught those in his life the true meaning of family. He had lifelong friends. He filled his home with music, beautiful décor, great food, and plentiful libations. Nothing made him happier than his dining room table filled with loved ones eating food he cooked in his kitchen. Craig was a cancer survivor, an "amateur" chef, an avid fan of St. Louis baseball and hockey, and purveyor of fine wine and bourbon whiskey. Like Frank Sinatra, Craig should be remembered "as a man who had a wonderful time living life, a man who had good friends, and fine family". Craig was preceded in death by his parents: Barbara and Bill Barnes, a sister: Kimberly Evans Murphy, and a nephew: Ryan Bick. Craig is survived by his wife: Kelly Yelton Barnes; his beloved children: Taylor (Ashley) Barnes-Gilbert and Connor (Corinne) Barnes, a brother: Kevin (Martha) Barnes, two sisters: Betsy (Michael) Duncan and Barbie Barnes, and his three beautiful grandchildren who were the light of his life: Lucy, Kieran, and Harper. He is also survived by his sisters-in-law: Pam (Joe) Bick and Stacy Yelton, as well as seven nieces and nephews who adored him, and five amazing great-nieces and nephews. Public Visitation will take place on Tuesday, January 10, 2022 from 10:00 AM until the Memorial Service at 11:00 AM at Connley Brothers Funeral Home, 11 East Southern Avenue, Covington (Latonia), Kentucky 41015. Entombment: Mother of God Cemetery, Fort Wright, Kentucky. The family requests no flowers be sent. Memorials in Craig's honor may be made to: Siteman Cancer Center online at siteman.wustl.edu/tribute or via mail at 7425 Forsyth Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63105. Please indicate memorial designation for "Head and Neck Cancer." Online condolences may be expressed on Facebook or at www.connleybrothersfuneralhome.com

I was so shocked and saddened to hear the news. My most heartfelt condolences to the Barnes family and AMI community. Craig was a true mentor to me. I valued his insight, support, kindness and gift of time. He was always willing to listen, talk and provide much needed advice and friendship. I am going to miss him greatly.
Sandra Martini - Jan 14, 2023
While I hadn't yet met Craig in person, I was a member of his AMI Group and got to know him through it and emailing back and forth over the past year. His love for his family and mentoring business owner came through in everything he said and did. His passing leaves a huge hole in the world and for all who knew him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Elizabeth Merwin - Jan 13, 2023
I met Craig for the first time a few months ago in Denver at an AMI workshop. I really enjoyed how he worked with the team and shared his knowledge. We sat next to each other at dinner and I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation about non-business life. He was a warm, witty and caring man. I am so sorry for your loss of Craig and my thoughts are with your family.
Megan Reeg - Jan 12, 2023
I am forever blessed to have had Craig as my first boss out of college. He taught me so much; not just about the marketing and advertising industry, but how to live a good life. He always took the scenic route through Forest Park on his morning commute. He loved sharing stories over a drink and cooking meals for his loved ones. He was quick to forgive - and laugh good-naturedly - when I made mistakes. He was smart and kind and generous and wickedly funny and the best mentor and father figure I could ever have. My deepest condolences to Kelly, Taylor, Connor, their spouses and children. He was truly the best.
Kace - Jan 10, 2023
We got to know Craig through his work with AMI and found him to be a great mentor, advisor, and friend. He will be dearly missed.
Karley Cunningham - Jan 10, 2023
I had the pleasure of meeting Craig at the 2022 AMI Build A Better Agency Conference. While our meeting and brief words we shared were only fleeting, I was witness to the AMI Community's adoration and appreciation of him. Many times I saw him across the room, engaged in deep conversation, making folks smile and laugh. It so clear, even from a distance, how genuine and deeply caring he was. Many times since I have heard his name and learned about the difference he made for folks in the community. Barnes family and friends, I share this message so you can see just how far the ripple effect of Craig's actions and dedication stretch in the world. I'm certain that his brilliance will continue to shine on through all of the energy, care and commitment he dedicated to the AMI Community. I'm deeply sorry for your loss.
Matthew Strunk - Jan 10, 2023
I’ve known Craig for nearly 6 years and met him through AMI. I had started an agency and knew very little so I signed Craig on as my coach. To say he’s made an impact in my life would be an understatement, his guidance and tough love helped us grow our company into something very special. His kindness was apparent and he seemed to generally care about us. My family’s life is drastically different and I feel confident that Craig was a big contributing factor. Please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss and please know that he was loved by many!
Patrick McCullough - Jan 10, 2023
We are devastated to hear of Craig's untimely passing. My dad and I knew Craig from AMI, where he provided us consult, guidance, and genuine interest and concern for eight years. Craig could always be counted on for his insight, conviction, and support in facing any challenge at hand––he was always eager to help improve our business. Along with that, he steadfastly expressed his pride in and love for his family and each of their accomplishments in life. Craig was a great guy who we all will miss dearly, and we are all better for having been influenced by his zest for life.
Sandy and Bill Kerlin - Jan 10, 2023
Craig was our neighbor many years ago on Wallace Avenue. We enjoyed many great conversations over food and drinks. Later when I came to know Kim I always enjoyed hearing about what Craig was up too. He was the dearest man and such a good neighbor. May his love of family and his embracing love comfort you in your grief. I have put the Barnes family on the prayer list at church. 🙏🙏
Randy Micheletti - Jan 10, 2023
This really breaks my heart. I only knew Craig for a couple years through our AMI group but he was the best. I loved talking Cardinal baseball with him and he always had a smile on his face when talking about his family. My deepest condolences to the entire Barnes family. Craig, you will be missed.
Christine Rival - Jan 10, 2023
I'm heartbroken to hear of Craig's passing. I knew him through AMI and considered him a mentor and a friend. He was always warm, welcoming and ready to listen, giving great advice along the way. I pray that his soul rests in the eternal peace. My sincere condolences to his family.
Melonie Sturm - Jan 9, 2023
I only knew Craig for a short time through AMI but I am so thankful for that time. So smart and caring, so generous with his knowledge and encouragement. Condolences to family and friends.
Katy Boos - Jan 9, 2023
Craig was my mentor, my confidante, my cheerleader and my friend. In 2020 when everything shut down, Craig guided me through the hardest work year of my life. He even sent a magnet to me that says "We can do hard things." A perfect reminder that I could - thanks to Craig's support. To his family, you already know (and the number of heartfelt condolences here clearly show it) that Craig left a lasting impact on those of us in AMI. But most of all, Craig loved his family beyond measure and talked about you often. I'm so very sorry for your loss.
Martha Marchesi - Jan 9, 2023
Craig was a funny, kind, insightful leader--I learned so much from him in the short time I knew him. My deepest condolences to the Barnes family, he will be greatly missed by everyone in the AMI family.
Nicole Mahoney - Jan 9, 2023
Sending the Barnes family hugs and strength. I am so sorry to hear of Craig’s passing. He was a wonderful mentor to my team as part of the AMI family. His weekly music posts on the AMI Facebook page always lifted our spirits and brought on a smile. May his family, friends and colleagues find peace and blessings for having known such a kind, smart and giving man.
Ryan Mannion - Jan 9, 2023
I am so, so sad to hear this. Craig was our agency coach a couple years ago. He was a wealth of knowledge, and just a tremendous human being. Sending love to the Barnes family and to the AMI family. He will be deeply missed.
Elaine Ralls - Jan 9, 2023
I am so addened to hear this news. Craig was one of a kind. I met him in AMI over 20 years ago, and even though I'm not active he and I stayed in touch. I celebrated with awe when he went to chef school and respected how he never stopped moving forward, learning new things, even when he faced challenges that would take others down. Quick to celebrate others, Craig impacted everyone he met...focusing on making sure others were in the place of most potential. God blessed us with Craig's lasting legacy. Prayers to all for peace and understanding. He'll always be with us.
Mike Morse - Jan 9, 2023
I met Craig last year as my AMI coach and although it's been a short time, he had such an impact. I was really looking forward to getting to know him on a personal level this year. I miss him already and am praying for peace for his family and friends.
Katherine Baessler - Jan 9, 2023
Craig was an amazing mentor and leader..to not only me but to others he worked with..he always was a family man and loved talking about his family and spoiled us with pictures every time we met up for our AMI groups. Craig will truly be missed. Sending healing prayers during this time and I'm so sorry for your loss.
Adam Moreau - Jan 9, 2023
I only met Craig for the first time just a few months ago. One of my very first days at my new job at an ad agency, I travelled to learn from him at an AMI session in Denver. I was immediately touched by his honesty, depth of knowledge, and warm personality. I was so excited to see him again in April to let him know how my journey in the agency world has been since we last spoke. Even though I only knew him for a couple of days, I couldn't wait to talk to him again. I extend my deepest condolences to his family and friends. Craig will be missed.
Julianne McCollum - Jan 9, 2023
Craig was such a generous, kind soul and all of us in his virtual peer group from AMI will miss him terribly. We were so gutted to hear the news and wanted to make sure the family knew how many lives he has touched - not just personally through coaching but also he made us better leaders and helped us grow our businesses so he indirectly touched all of those lives too! Much love to the family for healing.
Kimberly Hulett - Jan 9, 2023
I am at a loss for words and am deeply saddened by your loss and the loss to all those Craig touched. I only got to know Craig this past year through his mentoring with AMI. I am better as an individual and my business is better due to Craig's mentoring even for this short amount of time. Craig not only taught me things about business, but he also met we where my life was personally and provided perspective, encouragement and ways to ensure both were fulfilled. Thank you for sharing him with all of us. I think a piece of him will live on in those he touched. He will be missed! Sending strength and comfort!
Guy Westermeyer - Jan 9, 2023
I'm so sorry to hear this news. Craig was such a caring person. I only had the pleasure of knowing Craig through AMI for a year, but during that short time he made a big impact. He was always willing to listen and share his wisdom. My deepest condolences to you and your family.
Michael Bellavia - Jan 9, 2023
I\'m very sorry to hear this news. Craig was a great mentor to me personally and to our agency. He had really great room tone - always made people feel comfortable to share warts and all, free from judgment, and was always generous with support and guidance. He definitely helped make me a better manager and helped put HelpGood on a great path forward. My condolences to his family and friends and to the rest of the AMI agency leads who I\'m confident will continue to be influenced by Craig long into the future.
Anji Willenborg - Jan 9, 2023
My deepest sympathies to Barnes family. Craig was an incredible mentor and teacher and all-around wonderful man. I’ll cherish the things he’s taught me. He was kind, thoughtful, funny, patient, and wise. He could get to the heart of any problem and would help you figure it out. He always started our calls by sharing beautiful stories of his family and cared to ask about mine too. He did so much to help our agency, and I will miss his phone calls and words of advice. My thoughts and prayers are with all his family and friends. I will miss you, Craig. May your memories live on in the lives you’ve touched.
Chris Pierson - Jan 9, 2023
I am so sorry for your loss. It was wonderful getting to know and learning from Craig through AMI over the past year. We will miss him and his unwavering support for all of us in the AMI family.
David Ralls - Jan 9, 2023
Craig was one of the most authentic, generous and kind people I have ever met. I had the honor to know him for over 20 years and there is no question, his impact on me and those who knew him was significant. Craig's love for his wife and family was apparent in everything he did. Thankfully for me, his family extended to his friends at AMI who loved him like a brother. My thoughts and prayers are with you Kelly, Conor, Taylor and your entire family.
Doug Kauffman - Jan 9, 2023
Craig was an all around incredible man. It was nothing short of a pleasure to work with him over the past several years and while Craig clearly enjoyed the work he did it was the conversations about his family where I remember he would really light up. It was clear his family was his first priority and meant the world to him. Craig will be dearly missed and I pray peace that surpasses understanding for the family in this time of sorrow.
Lisa Maier - Jan 9, 2023
The world is a smaller and colder place with Craig's passing.

Jacob Hoehne - Jan 9, 2023
Craig had a wealth of experience to draw from as an agency owner mentor. He was always a steady voice even in turbulent times as we met monthly. So sad to see him go far too soon.
Leslie Osborne - Jan 9, 2023
When I saw Craig, I always found a way to get close enough to him to learn something new. His personality, willingness to share and all around cheerleader will not be forgotten. Prayers to his family in this difficult time.
Nic and Gloria Wildeman - Jan 9, 2023
We are saddened to hear the news. We are honored to share part of this crazy life's journey with Craig...the world was a better place because of his presence.
Bob Abbate - Jan 9, 2023
I'm so very sorry to hear of Craig's passing. I was fortunate to be a participant in a roundtable discussion that Craig led at a recent AMI event. I quickly learned that to know him was to love him. Craig's concern for everyone he came in contact with was genuine. My prayers and sympathies go out to Kelly and his family, as well as to his AMI family. May the memories of his smile and sense of humor sustain us all during these sad days.
Amanda Combs - Jan 9, 2023
I'm so saddened by the news of Craig's passing and my heart hurts for his family. While we only met in person once at my first AMI meeting last fall and virtually through several calls, I felt an immediate warmth from him. We bonded over bourbon at dinner and he asked all about my family and children. A genuine good soul with great advice - for marketing AND for living life to the fullest. He will be greatly missed by the AMI community and everyone he knew.
Camille - Jan 9, 2023
I can't believe the last time I saw Craig forever was this past October. I was just getting to know him through his mentorship with AMI and I loved every minute and every piece of wisdom he shared. Whether it was about running a business or selecting the best wine or connecting with people we love - Craig enthusiastically and generously shared his wisdom. The world lost a very amazing person in Craig Barnes. He will be very missed in our agency community.
Bruce McMeekin - Jan 9, 2023
Craig was an thoughtful person who brought wisdom to every conversation. I met him through his work at Agency Management Institute and will miss seeing him at future meetings and events.

Deanna Shimota - Jan 9, 2023
My deepest sympathies to Barnes family. Creaig was kind, generous with his time and an all-around good human being. I was privileged to have had him as a coach, mentor and friend through the AMI for the past five years and am so grateful to have had him in my corner. He will be missed.
Danny Mager - Jan 9, 2023
My condolences to the Barnes family. When I joined AMI, Craig was the first guy to extend me a welcoming, helping hand. We loved talking about music and I really appreciated his periodic check in calls with me to see how things were going. May his memory be for a blessing!
Annette Kmitch - Jan 9, 2023
My deepest sympathy on your loss. I knew Craig professionally through AMI and he was a passionate and kind mentor with an obvious love for life and family.
Brad Gillum - Jan 9, 2023
I was heartbroken to learn of Craig's passing. He's been such a great advocate, mentor and friend to so many over the years through AMI, me included. Craig was always there to greet me with a smile and an ecouraging word even though we didn't work directly together. I know his family meant the world to him and he beamed when he talked about his grandkids. Sending peace and love to the entire family during this difficult time. May you rest in peace my friend.
Melinda Byerley - Jan 9, 2023
To Kelly and Craig's family and closest friends: Craig was my business coach and was incredible at it. I got to meet him at the BABA summit last spring and we were at Drew's table together. But when I was diagnosed with breast cancer last summer, I was profoundly lucky to see the big heart inside. He immediately sent me a magnet that is still on my fridge, like the one his wife kelly had given him when he was diagnosed: "We can do hard things." And when I feared for the worst for myself and my business, Craig showed me with his own experience that I would survive. We were texting pretty regularly after his surgery this fall, up until Christmas. This comes as such a shock and a loss, and I can't imagine the sadness from those who knew him best. He was a gentleman, and a good man. I will miss him profoundly. May his memory, in time, be a comfort to you all.
Tim Lindner - Jan 9, 2023
Craig was a wonderful business mentor and friend. I was lucky enough to meet him several times in addition to seeing him virtually every month. He will be greatly missed but will leave behind good memories and wisdom.
Megan Braverman - Jan 9, 2023
Craig, I’m so deeply saddened. You were such a wonderful soul. I can’t begin to describe in words how much you’ve helped me professionally and how much you’ve supported me personally. I will be forever changed because of you. Thank you for being so amazing and always taking time out for me. I’m thinking of your wonderful family that you spoke about every chance you got. I’ll miss sharing baby stories with you.
Laura Pierson - Jan 9, 2023
My heart just hurts with learning of Craig's passing. He was a great mentor to me as I was stepping into a larger role, not to mention the help he provided with some of our clients. He was always there to talk through a problem and give us an unbiased perspective. To his family and all who loved him, my deepest condolences.
Alex Wells - Jan 9, 2023
I did not ever get to meet Craig personally, but I did communicate with him through AMI a few times and was always charmed by his kind personality. I know he was a special part of the AMI team. My prayers and condolences go out to his family and colleagues.
Lori Cronin - Jan 9, 2023
I've gotten to know the wonderful Barnes family over the last decade through my dearest friend Taylor. I absolutely loved hearing Taylor tell stories about her dad. His love of cooking, the trip he took to Italy, and his ability to quote National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, among many, many other memories. I have had the pleasure of spending time, though limited, with Taylor's parents over the years and I quickly began looking to them as a guide for a love that can last a lifetime. Their relationship gave me hope that lifelong love is still possible. Craig always seemed like the coolest dad around, and he will be sorely missed by anyone who ever met him. My deepest sympathies to my sweet Tay, Ash, and Lucy. To Tay's beloved brother Connor and his family. And to Kelly, thank you for sharing your soulmate with the world and inspiring others to love. To Liz and Kathleen, I know how important Craig was to you after the loss of your mother, I'm so, so sorry. I hope he is reunited with Kim. Tay always said they were best friends. I love you all so much. My heart aches for you. Anything you ever need, please reach out to the Cronin family. All our love. Josh, Lori, Jack, and Caleb

Taja Dockendorf - Jan 9, 2023
I had the pleasure of getting to know and work with Craig over the past year. We lovingly called him our "Office Dad" as we he held us accountable but with a level of care, insight and compassion that we looked forward to on a monthly basis, and we in turn never wanted to let him down. He will be greatly missed by my team, more than I can express as Craig was 1 in a million.
Art & Lori Boulay, and all of us at STM - Jan 9, 2023
To know him was truly to love him---we will always remember Craig for his humor, wisdom and generosity....generosity in every definition of the word. Blessings to the Barnes family and all that love him.
John P. Walsh - Jan 9, 2023
To the family of Craig, I had the pure pleasure of meeting Craig many years ago while being involved in a local non for profit. Craig was very active within the charity and welcomed me in which made way to a very long friendship. I introduced him to several acquaintances who owned there own business and were looking to take them to the next level. It was an honor to refer Craig to my friends as the feedback was so overwhelming from all of them. Thank you for your friendship my friend. Until we meet again in that larger than life conference room. RIP John P. Walsh St. Louis, Mo
Lori Turner-Wilson - Jan 9, 2023
I didn't get a chance to meet, Craig, but I do know what a reputation he had to lead with his heart and help those all around him. I'm sad that I didn't get the opportunity to know him as so many of my peers did, and I'm sending my love to his family whom I know he adored.

Debi (Rich) Verges - Jan 7, 2023
I met Craig during my sophomore year of school. And I can rightfully say he was my first high school crush. After graduation we went our separate ways only to find out later through FB we had been living within an hour of each in Missouri for years. We managed to meet up one day and it is a reunion I will cherish. You were a dear friend Craig and you will be missed. To his family who he loved deeply... “May your happy memories give you peace and comfort during this challenging time.”
Pamela Carpenter Hauck - Jan 7, 2023
