Robert "Bobby" Barnes had a laugh that could fill a room, a heart generous enough to give away his winter coat, a love for his family, and a stubborn streak. On Saturday, about 50 mourners gathered at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Manayunk to honor the 51-year-old homeless man who died Nov. 25 - more than seven months after he was savagely beaten by three women and at least three juveniles at a gas station in Olney.
