Calvin Leon "Flash" Baynard, 65, of Pocomoke City, died on Thursday, May 10, 2018, surrounded by his family following a long illness at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Born on February 5, 1953 in Easton, MD, he was a son of the late Clayton and Frieda Degan Baynard.
Following graduation from Mardela High School in 1971, he worked for Lewis West as a licensed plumber. He volunteered in the U.S. Army from 1976 - 1982, where he earned the rank of Sgt.
