Orville Ray Payne grew up on a country farm in Hartsburg, IL and retired in Lincoln, IL. He married Charlene Amelia Anderson on May 6, 1961. He worked at Eaton for many years and was a member of the United States Navy. He loved to show pictures to his family and friends. In his younger years, he enjoyed basketball and cards, especially pinochle. Ray had a heart full of love and would help anyone. If a camera was around, he would be smiling! He loved to make Charlene laugh with his wonderful sense of humor. He loved his Cadillac and kept it polished to perfection and enjoyed fixing things around the house for his family. Holidays and celebrations always made him happy when his family and extended family would gather with him. Each evening for many years, he would go for a walk around the neighborhood to unwind. He was loved by many and will be missed by all.
