Wayne Barney

Wayne Barney, 82, passed away quietly at home June 29, 2023.

Born on Jan. 29, 1941, he was the son of Alfred and Maisey (Patterson) Barney.

Wayne loved to collect everything, if he had two, he added 20 more! His biggest love was the game of golf; he played in any weather with anyone he met on the course. A lot of hard work went into his goal of getting back on the course, but it was not meant to be. Wayne was a union finish carpenter by trade, he worked for many years building beautiful homes for Ken Hare Construction in Lake Placid.

Wayne was the last member of the huge Barney family; he was predeceased by his parents Alfred and Maisey; his first wife, Babette (Lacy); two sons, Andrew and Aaron Barney; his brothers and sisters, Al, Cal, Hoover, Louise, Gene and Bobbi (Bessie). He was also predeceased by several nephews he loved very much.

Wayne is survived by his wife of 35 years, Victoria (Baillargeon); his daughters, Angie and Melissa; and daughter-in-law Merry. He was also survived by several grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Lacy, Boe, Sierra and Christopher; Shawn, Kristi, Cody and Gabriell; and Arron and Emily.
