Timothy Payne


Timothy J. Payne, 57, of Calhoun, passed away on Wednesday, June 13, 2018. 

Tim was born on June 12, 1961, and grew up in Farner.  He was the fifth of six children born to Mary Jo Payne and the late Lloyd Payne.  

He was also preceded in death by his sister, Patricia (Jay) Lewis; and brother,  Pedro (Renee) Payne.

Tim married Amy in 1982, and was the love of her life.  He was an avid outdoorsman, and enjoyed spending time hunting and fishing with close family and friends.  He was the best husband, father, papaw, and friend anyone could ever imagine. Tim did not know a stranger, often running into someone he knew everywhere he went. Tim was also a big Tennessee Volunteer fan, and is no doubt singing “Rocky Top” as loud as he can while watering the grass at 10 p.m.

He was an employee of Olin Chemical in Charleston. 

Survivors include his wife of 36 years, Amy Payne of Calhoun; son and daughter-in-law, Aric and Kara Payne of Calhoun; son, Evan Payne of Calhoun; grandchildren, Aubri and Jackson Payne; his mother, Mary Jo Payne;  brother and sister-in-law, L.D. and Teresa Payne of Chickamauga, Ga.; brother and sister-in-law, Dale and Peggy Payne of Cleveland; brother and sister-in-law, Gary and Sheila Payne of Riceville; and several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and many other friends and family.

The Remembrance of Life  service will be conducted on Saturday, June 16, 2018, at 4 p.m. at the Jim Rush Funeral and Cremation Services North Ocoee Chapel with Pastor Justin Payne officiating. 

The family will receive friends from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the funeral home.
