Bayne was the most generous, honest and hard working man. He was always ready to lead a hand and would not take no for an answer.
My kids, Taylor and Trey, will miss their “Grandface”. He has been there from the day they were born. I remember him holding Taylor for the first time like a little football.
I will miss our long talks and your great laugh. Bayne I know you are on a farm taking care of all the deer, foxes and birds in heaven my friend. ❤️

Bayne & I grew up 100 yards apart. As children, we spent Summer afternoons playing softball in my backyard with neighborhood kids. During the school year, we played high school sports & walked home together after practice. I am so grateful that we kept in touch throughout the years and had some time together at our 60th reunion. Little did I know that would be the last time we would have a chance to reminisce about our childhood.
Sincere condolences to Bayne's family and friends. Dale Hance

So sorry to hear of Bayne's passing. He was a close friend of mine during and after high school. He also shared a room with me while he attended classes at Strayer College. Good memories of Bayne to me will last a life time.
