And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying.  Neither shall there be any more pain.  For the former things are passed away.    Revelation: 21:4

It’s hard to understand why people are taken from us so young, but find comfort in knowing you were a special part of a well-lived life.  Some things in life, we’ll never know.  One day in that bye and bye, we’ll face the Master, and then we’ll understand why.  Know also that when the Lord calls our loved ones home, He leaves a gift of memories in exchange.  Corneilous La’Landa Travis Barnwell, known to all that knew and love him as “Scooby” AKA “Scrapp” The third child born to Mary Ann Bowman and La’Vorn Barnwell on March 22, 1979 in Hampton County, South Carolina. Our Heavenly Father reclaimed His child on August 27, 2018 in Gifford, South Carolina.

Scooby received his education in the Hampton County School District 2 school system.  He was a very well-known and respectful young man with a boisterous attitude and a smile to match.   There weren’t many that didn’t know the cooking and gardening skills he possessed. Most of all, he was best at being “funny”, naturally funny, and had a special love for dogs and horses too.  It was normal to see him riding with the dog(s) sitting in the back seat.  What many may not know; his passion for writing…Scooby loved writing “expressively”, he was a poetic at heart!  Scooby had a kindred spirit and a witty sense of humor.  His witty memories will forever live within our hearts. He loved his family and cherished every moment he had with each one of them and even if you weren’t family, in his eyes everybody was family to him. There was something special about his relationship with his mother.  They would sit and talk for hours about planting flowers. His big sister Mouchie (Daphne) could do nothing wrong in his eyes and little brother Pigg was his wing-man. Big brother Marvin was his secret protector. Jarell was his nephew and he was the uncle. His niece Krishe’na Connell was like his oldest daughter. The love he had for his children is undeniable.  Scooby aka “Scrapp “will be truly missed. Scooby had an old soul even in music. His love for music by the Temptations which consisted of “Papa was a Rolling Stone” and “My Girl” just to name a few of his favorite hits.  Scooby could recite biblical verses like he was an ordained minister. His favorite gospel song was “At the Gate I Know “  by Tommy Ellision which moved him joyfully.  He simply had a love for all genres of music.

He leaves to cherish precious and joyful memories:  his mother, Mary A. Bowman, Orangeburg, SC;  his father, La’ Vorn Barnwell, Walterboro, SC;  children, (twin boys) Nautis Kahleed  and Nauseen Traas, (twin girls) Cornelia Avonnia and Corniyhia Yavonnia;  additional children raised as his own, My’Eisha, Ty’Lasia and Sable; eight grandchildren all of Savannah, Ga; maternal grandmother, Elizabeth Bowman, Furman, SC;  loving sister whom he “adored”, Daphne Bowman, Orangeburg, SC;  sisters, Yolanda Bing and Cynthia Legalee both of Atlanta, Ga;  brothers, Marvin M.
