Clarence Barnes Sr., a longtime resident of Springs who established the Barnes Country Store on Springs-Fireplace Road there, died on March 4 at the Hamptons Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing in Southampton. He was 80 years old.
Mr. Barnes was born in Indiana to Charles Barnes and the former Helen French. He grew up there, coming to the South Fork in his early 20s while stationed in Montauk with the Air Force.
Thomas Hamilton of Amagansett, a retired aerospace worker who first came to the South Fork in the 1930s to camp with his wife at Hither Hills State Park in Montauk, died on March 3 at Southampton Hospital. He was 99 and had suffered a number of strokes over the past decade.
He was “a real gentleman,” his son Kenneth Hamilton said. “It’s something you don’t see as much anymore. How you’re brought up, what’s right and what’s wrong. That was always very important to him.”
A memorial service in the Quaker tradition for Kathryn Abbe will take place on March 29 at the Friends Meeting House in Jericho at 10:30 a.m.
Ms. Abbe, a photographer who had a summer house in Montauk for some 70 years, died at the age of 94 in January. The meetinghouse is at 6 Old Jericho Turnpike.
