Levi Barnett, of Oxford, passed away Sunday, September 5, 2021, at just shy of 2 years old. Levi was a big prankster and was always messing with people. He had a great sense of humor and was always smiling. Levi was very handsome and looked good in every outfit he wore. He had a free spirit, loved everyone, and gave the best and biggest hugs along with a pat on the back. Levi was very active; he loved to play outside and enjoyed nature walks. He loved animals and his favorite snack was oreos; no matter where you hid them, he would always find them. He loved his mama and had to do anything she was doing. Levi was greatly adored by his family.
