Obituary

Born November 21, 1936, in Marshall, NC, he was the son of the late Clay Payne and the late Myrtle Fisher Payne. He was a longtime, active member of Crosswell Baptist Church and retired from Farmers Telephone Cooperative after 32 years of service. He served in the U.S. Air Force for 10 years where he learned his trade and love for electronics. He was a Vietnam War veteran. He was an avid fisherman of all of the local lakes, especially the Santee Cooper lakes where he had a name for practically every stump he fished. He also enjoyed repairing televisions for his family and friends. He had a determined spirit and will to live surviving many tragic illnesses including several bouts with cancer and numerous vascular incidents. His will and determination to live was driven by his great love of his family.

He was preceded in death by a son, Johnny Barrett.

Funeral services will be held at 2 P.M. Wednesday at Crosswell Baptist Church with the Rev. Charles Owens officiating. Burial will be in the Evergreen Memorial Park Cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Tim Russell, Bobby Russell, Timmy McMickell, Gene Kelly, Gene Ducom, and Robert Kelly.

From my family to Jimmys' our deepest sympathies and prayers...Jimmy had been on my mind and I wondered how he was. Now I know he's in Heaven with his Heavenly Father God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. If I can do anything for the family please let my son and myself know. God Bless to all.
