Shane Barmby

February 12, 1954 — October 27, 2022

Shane Barmby, 68 of Sacramento, California, had his last performance on earth the morning of Thursday, October 27, 2022. Born to ranchers, Bobby and Lucy Barmby, Shane was given the first name James. Along with siblings Jeff and Judy, James completed the triple JJJ brand. Soon after graduating from Elk Grove High School, he was married, and in 1974, daughter Shaneen was born. Touring with Don Wilson and band Gun-shy as early as age 15, he was a natural on the stage. His true passion was continuing the legacy of his Rodeo Producer Grandfather, Bob Barmby. Along with his father and brother who were both calf ropers, Shane competed professionally for over 50 years until his health took a turn. Along with competing in Rodeos, Shane worked professionally in the movie business as a teamster, and a member of the Screen Actors Guild. He can be seen as early as the 1980's appearing in film and TV shows such as “Little House on the Prairie" and ''Dallas" and he played the lead in the “The Rick Nelson Story,” on NBC TV. In 1986, Shane moved to Nashville, TN where he toured with Randy Travis and received his first record deal “Riding and Roping” in 1989. This album included the music video that hit number one on Country Music Television. Recording contracts for albums “Jukebox Symphony” and “Let’s Talk about Us” would follow in the early 1990’s. Shane has written and recorded hundreds of songs based on his life and love of music. He loved to entertain and would often serenade family and friends with his gift of singing and playing the guitar. “Cowboy Shane” as he was known by many fans will truly be missed.

Shane is survived by his mother, Lucy; daughter, Shaneen; grandson, Tavi; niece, Jocelynn; nephew, Blandon and many cousins.
