Shayne Clinton Baringer was born on July 11, 1964, in Las Vegas, Nev., to Charles Clinton and Carolyn Baringer. He passed from this life in Anchorage, Alaska, on Oct. 13, 2015. Shayne graduated from Mountain Home High School in Idaho in 1982. After graduation, Shayne moved to Kodiak, Alaska, where he worked for a roofing company and also fished commercially. Shayne next moved to Homer, Alaska, where he got his start in commercial construction with Brown Construction. In 1990, Shayne gained employment with Enserch, where he worked as a Tunnel Supervisor on Bradley Lake Hydro Project. After its completion, Shayne began working for Herndon and Thompson, Inc. and then later worked for Osage Construction. In 1995, Shayne married his wife, Nikki. Soon thereafter, they took a leap of faith and started Twin Peaks Construction, Inc. and eventually moved to Anchor Point, Alaska. This would prove to be a great decision, because in 1998, Nikki gave birth to their son, Tristan. Owning Twin Peaks Construction did, in fact, allow Shayne to work close to home and be with Nikki and Tristan. They started out small with minimal equipment, but Nikki and Shayne worked side by side, and grew Twin Peaks Construction into a multimillion dollar business, completing more than 93 construction projects. Some of the jobs Shayne was proudest of were: Kennecott Mine, King Cove Roads, Stariski Creek Bridge and numerous jobs in Denali National Park spanning a 9 year period. Shayne's proudest accomplishment was the completion of his latest project - the Stetson Creek Cooper Lake Dam Diversion Project for Chugach Electric. Shayne thrived on taking difficult jobs and making them successful, and loved being around all of his equipment which he called "his yellow candy." Shayne had many hobbies including hunting, fishing, traveling and loved to ride his Harley. But Shayne's favorite past time was bidding, planning and completing construction projects. Shayne was a member of AGC of Alaska, Ducks Unlimited, the National Rifle Association and the Elks Lodge. He held many construction related certifications from CESCL, MSHA and ISMA, to name a few, and also held a federal explosives license issued by the ATF division of the U.S. Department of Justice. Shayne was determined to have a successful commercial construction business and worked tirelessly to achieve that goal. Shayne was preceded in death by one brother, Michael Baringer. He is survived by his wife, Nikki Danette Baringer; son, Tristan Ethan Baringer as well as his beloved German shepherd, Chief; daughter, Dionella "Bow" Baringer and Mike "Spanky" Doble, and Bow's daughter, Piper Nicole Baringer, who Shayne lovingly referred to as his little princess; daughter, Malina Miller with her husband Aaron and grandchildren Jeremy and Aaris; father, Charles Clinton Baringer and Marlis Osburn of Las Vegas; mother, Carolyn St. Jean and husband Ralph of Mountain Home, Idaho; brother, Charles Baringer Jr. "Chuck" and wife Brenda of Las Vegas; sister, Kim Orozco and husband Rudy of Las Vegas; sister, Kelly Hobbs and husband John of Boise, Idaho; brother, Kermit Roy Baringer of Las Vegas; sister, Kristin Gravedoni and husband Guido of Mountain Home; father-in-law, Marvin Beeson and wife Barbara of Bend, Ore.; mother-in-law, Doni Beeson of Sun City, Ariz.; and sister-in-law, Kim Beeson of Bend; as well as fourteen nieces and nephews. Shayne had many friends, acquaintances and loyal employees. He will be missed by many. A memorial service will take place at Glacier View Baptist Church in Homer on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015, at 4 p.m. Pastor Rick Wise will officiate. After the memorial, there will be a pot-luck dinner at the Homer Elks Lodge, for a continued celebration of Shayne's life.
