Obituary for John D. Payne

John D. Payne, 53, Mandan, passed away Jan. 12, 2018, surrounded by loved ones at CHI St. Alexius, Bismarck. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Cremation has taken place.
John was born Aug. 11, 2018, in Spokane, Wash., the oldest son of Eudonna Schlickenmayer. John graduated high school at Marmot High, Mandan. It was during his high school years he met his wife to be, and soul mate, Diane Heck. They were married June 1, 1984, in Mandan. John and Diane had one daughter, Kayla. They later had custody of their grandson, Julian, who was always by Grandpa's side, "going somewhere." Julian was the light of John's eye and his best friend. John started his "chef" career at several local hotels. He recently was working at the KFC in Bismarck, where he had been for the last 10 years, side by side with Diane.
John was a very caring man, born with the gift to gab to anyone. He made tons of friends wherever he went.
John leaves behind his wife of 33 years, Diane; one daughter, Kayla Payne, Bismarck; grandson, Julian Payne, Mandan; three brothers, Brian Payne, Texas, Bruce Payne, Bismarck, and Gary Schlickenmayer, Minnesota.
John was preceded in death by his mother, Eudonna Schlickenmayer; and his grandparents, Norma and John Davis.

Further arrangements are pending at DaWise-Perry Funeral Services, Mandan, North Dakota.
