Russell P. Barnett, 59, a trainman on the Lehigh Valley Railroad, was found dead this morning in the bedroom of his home at 1032 Northampton Street. The Easton police described the death as suicide.

The body was found at 8:45 a.m. by Barnett's wife, the former Helen Burnner. She had gone to work at the Easton Potato Chip plant in the rear of the building at 8 o'clock and returned home to visit her husband briefly.

Mr. Barnett had been released on Fridy from Easton Hospital. He had been in ill health for some time.

The Easton police were notified by Dr. Joseph Grandi, who was called by Mrs. Barnett. Northampton County Coroner David F. Bachman also was notified. The body was removed to the Bechtel funeral home.

Mr. Barnett was employed by the Leigh Valley Railroad for 37 years. He was born in Easton, a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Barnett.

He was a member of Phillipsburg Aerie 1372, Fraternal Order of Eagles; Easton Lodge 45, Loyal Order of Moose; Liberty Hose Co., Easton; Easton Elks Lodge, and St. Paul's Lutehran Church, South Side. He served in the Army during World War I.

Survivors, in addition to his wife, are two sisters, Mrs. Frank Fisher, of Easton, and Mrs. Arthur Lockard, of Wilmington, Del.
