Mr. Chandler, 27, passed away January 3, 2022, at St. Dominic Medical Center. He was born in Greenwood, MS, March 31, 1994, to Dr. Gary W. Barkman and Dwana Chandler Barkman. Hayden had an adventurous personality and a passionate work ethic. He had an amazing outlook on life. His greatest joy in life was crane and rigging, which was what he loved to do most. His love for this industry pales in comparison to his greatest loves, his children, Gentry and Leighton. Hayden was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
