Darryl Timothy Barnett, affectionally known as DT, was born on January 16, 1963 in Baltimore, Maryland to Charlie and Joyce Barnett. On Sunday, March 28, 2021, God called him into eternal rest from Earth to Glory.
As a child, Darryl loved to draw and was extremely gifted in arts and crafts. He received his education in the Baltimore City Public School System and was a proud graduate of the Polytechnic Institute High School. Always the outstanding student, Darryl was inspired to pursue his secondary education as an Architectural Engineer at Eastern Michigan University, Hampton University, and North Carolina State where he earned his bachelor’s degree.
DT designed and built his first house in 1990 for his sister Margaret Lecato in Randallstown, Maryland. Throughout his career, Darryl continued to excel at his craft and was employed by Home Kitchen & Bath Design, Home Depot, Aerotek, and Daniel Ball & Associates as a designer. His last place of employment was the United States Coast Guard where he worked for 12 years as an architect designer and inspector.
At the age of 16, Darryl began his walk with the Lord while attending the Maryland Church of God in Christ. Sometime later, he became a member of the Greater Remnant Church of God in Christ under the leadership of the late Bishop David Washington Spann, Sr., where he was also ordained as a deacon. In 2007, the Lord directed him to take his family and join Rehoboth Ministries Church of God in Christ under the leadership of Bishop William E. McMillan, Jr., where he served a deacon, the Men’s Ministry Chairman and a member of the trustee board. In 2016, he once again obeyed the voice of God and joined the Kingdom Kulture Ministries under the leadership of his dear brother, Pastor Reginald Patterson, where he served as the Chief of Staff. Deacon Barnett had a heart of a worshipper and could often be heard singing praises unto the Lord.
He was an awesome provider for his family, making sure that no matter the cost, his wife and children wanted for nothing. He DID NOT believe in being cheap; but, rather believed in getting what you want and valuing the high quality of things. His children were God sent blessings, who he loved with an everlasting love.
Darryl Barnett is preceded in death by: his father Charlie Barnett, his brothers Charles and John Barnett, and his sister Kimberly Barnett. He leaves to cherish his legacy: his wife, Denise Barnett; son, Pastor Tobias A. Barnett McCain (Tamara); daughter, Alicia Barnett-Sanders; granddaughter, Londyn Marie; grand-dog, Toby Barnett; his mother, Joyce Barnett; Siblings: Mable Lecato, Tauheedah Shah (Isa), Margaret Lecato, and Debra Gamble; Best friends and brothers: Marcus Wright, Larry Summerville (Vivian), and Pastor Reginald Patterson (Sharrie); five Godchildren: Denise Harris, Jada Harris, Marcus Gamble, Morgan Cunningham and Joshua Smith; a host of uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, and friends.
