The family of Lloyd Dwayne Barney Sr. mourns the passing of Lloyd, but fondly remembers a life full of activities, friends, charitable service, and love for his family. Lloyd was born in Salt Lake City, the son of Joe Albert Barney and Ellen Madeline Lloyd Barney. When Lloyd was seven his family moved to Ogden, where he attended Lorin Farr Elementary, Central Junior High and Ogden High School. At Ogden High he met Jerine Jones, his future wife.
Lloyd excelled in sports. As a baseball pitcher he was named Outstanding Player in Utah’s 1954 High-School All-Star game. He was also a top-notch bowler and won many tournaments, including a special win when he teamed up with his father in the Ogden City team scratch championship.
His formal work life was spent with Weber County where he held several positions including Weber County Auditor. But more important to Lloyd was his volunteer work. Nordic Valley Ski Resort was where Lloyd began his 44-year career as a ski patroller. He worked his way up, and eventually was named the Director of the Intermountain Division of the National Ski Patrol in 1992.
In 1994 Jerine and Lloyd built a home in Plain City, where Lloyd joined the fire department. He loved the fire department and volunteered from 1995 through 2008.
Lloyd is survived by his son Dwayne Barney (Roxy) and daughter Gayle Dalpias (Mike). He is also survived by six grandchildren, Cody Barney (Rae), Traci Barney Jacobs, Ashley Thatcher (Richard), Crystal Rasmussen (Derek), Candace Keisel (Bryan), Casey Dalpias (Natalie) and eleven great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife (Jerine) and his older brother (Joe Jr.).
Lloyd was a kind and charitable person. As a young father, he volunteered to coach numerous little league teams. His teams didn’t always win, but the players always had a positive experience. At Christmas time Lloyd and Jerine would pin twenty-dollar bills to sweatshirts and drive around town distributing them to people who were down on their luck. Lloyd greatly loved Jerine, and when her health deteriorated Lloyd was as helpful as a spouse could possibly be.
Lloyd was a member of the Plain City 6th Ward. Although he was not always a regular meeting goer, he was a deeply religious man in a more significant respect. The Apostle Paul wrote: “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.”
Lloyd’s family will hold a small graveside service on Monday, January 22, 2024 at 11 AM at the Providence Cemetery, Providence, Utah.
