February 6, 1933 - May 3, 2022
William Lonell Payne, age 89, of Alpharetta, GA went to be with his Lord on Tuesday, May 3, 2022. He was born in Cumming, GA to Eulies Payne and Lillian Irene Payne (Day). Lonell was the oldest of 8. Lonell was no stranger to hard work; he grew up working the fields on his Mama and Daddy’s farm and started working a public job in the 10th grade. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and if a car needed repair, you could call on Lonell. As he got older, he enjoyed spending time with his family on Lake Lanier and you could always catch him at the dirt track at Dixie Speedway every Saturday. Lonell was a wonderful storyteller and could tell you all you need to know about raising livestock, vegetable gardens, cars, and old Alpharetta. Lonell was preceded in death by his parents, Eulies and Lillian Irene Payne; daughter, Tonya Payne; brothers, Talmadge Payne, Calvin Payne; sister, Lillian Payne Stewart; brothers-in-law, Roy Stewart and Bill Jordan. He is survived by his wife, Inell Payne; daughter and son-in-law, Sheila Payne and Alan Rucker; sons and daughters-in-law, Danny and Diane Payne, Audie and Roni Payne; grandchildren, Jeff and Heather Rucker, Josh Payne, Jennifer Payne and Justin Peppers and Brittany Borgula; great-grandchildren, Ellison Rucker, Colton Payne and Malia Peppers; brothers and sisters-in-law, Wallace and Margie Payne, Larry and Frances Payne; sister, Joyce Martin and Louise Jordan along with several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and great-great-nieces and nephews.
