Dayne Curtis Barnhardt, 67, of Frederick, MD, unexpectedly left us June 7, 2021. He was born December 22, 1953 in Honolulu, Hawaii, the son of Jacqueline Joy Barnhardt and Deane DeVere Barnhardt who both predeceased him. Dayne was a 1971 graduate of Governor Thomas Johnson High School.
Dayne started working young at the Holiday Inn, Watsons, Baskin-Robbins, and Crum Electric before Eastalco Aluminum Company/Alcoa where he retired at 53 in 2007 when the plant shut down. Dayne was very proud of numerous service awards for perfect attendance. He enjoyed NASCAR racing and collecting things like his impressive collection of Pez dispensers and watches. He had a kind heart, a soft spot for kids and animals, and he never knew a stranger. He was always the life of the party and kept everyone laughing. Dayne will be terribly missed by many devoted friends and family.
Surviving is big sister, Brenda Barnhardt, of Frederick, MD, Aunt Doris Bauer of Reading, PA and numerous cousins.
A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 at 1:00 PM at Mount Olivet Cemetery.
As Dayne often spoke of the beloved cats and dogs in his life, memorial contributions from those who choose are strongly suggested to The Animal Welfare League of Frederick County, 1202 East Patrick Street, Suite 13A, Frederick, MD 21701.
