Harold Wayne Baldwin, 80 years of age, of New Albany, Indiana, passed away from COVID-19 complications on September 10, 2020. He was born on June 18, 1940 in Washington, Indiana, to the late Oral Eugene and Mary Maxine (Clemans) Baldwin. Wayne graduated from New Albany High School in 1958. In 1969, he received a Bachelor’s degree from Indiana State University in Industrial Arts (Secondary Education) with a major in Auto Mechanics and Metals.
