Obituary for Frank Payne

Frank Uel Payne, 80, of Sedalia, MO passed away Saturday, September 26, 2020 at Rest Haven Convalescent Home, Sedalia. He was born on May 7, 1940 in Sedalia the son of "Sandy" C. Uel and Blanche (Hieronymus) Payne, who preceded him in death.

Frank was a member of Hopewell Baptist Church. He was a trustee for the Hopewell Cemetery Association for 40 years. He worked diligently as a row crop, cattle, and turkey farmer all of his life.
