On the morning of November 12, 2022, Klinelle “Nelle” Barton, of Milwaukee, found rest at age 39.
Nelle grew up in Milwaukee surrounded by siblings, aunts, uncles, and many cousins. He attended Believers in Christ Academy for elementary school, and Hartford University School for Urban Exploration for middle school; Nelle attended Metropolitan High School where he met other students that remain some of his best friends to this day. Nelle loved Batman, martial arts, and movies – he was happiest watching martial arts or horror films.
Nelle touched many lives throughout his life and will leave behind many loved ones that will always remember his laugh, and how he was one of the funniest people they have ever met. Most importantly, we remember how he was a protector and could be friends with anyone.
Nelle is survived by his son, Eli, mother, Kimber, dad, Eric (Kelly), stepdad, John, dad, Kerney, and younger siblings, Kévon (Warren), Naomi, Lela, and bonus sister, Lacey. He is further survived by a niece, nephew, grandparents, many cousins, aunts, uncles, other relatives, and several dear friends.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 19, 2022 at Believers in Christ Christian Academy – 4065 N 25th St, Milwaukee, WI, 53209 - at 11a and a repast will follow. Please consider donating to the family’s GoFundMe, where the proceeds will go towards memorial costs, and to the care of his son, Eli. https://gofund.me/a9c329ac
