Glen W. Payne, 86, passed away on August 29, 2022. He was born January 26, 1936, in Leavenworth, KS, to Everett and Mamie Payne. Glen was raised in Leavenworth, KS, and graduated from Leavenworth High in 1954. Following high school, he served in the United States Army, stationed in Korea. He spent many years in the banking industry, attended Kansas City Kansas Community College, obtained certificates from numerous banking and Dale Carnegie professional development and training courses, and graduated from the School of Banking in Madison, WI.

His hobbies included hunting, fishing, furniture restoration, woodworking, finding treasures at antique malls and estate sales, and playing games and poker.

He is survived by daughters, Joni (Bill) Shadonix of Overland Park, KS, and Janise (Mike) Thurston of Wichita, KS, seven grandchildren (Jason, Matthew, and Stephen Shadonix, Leigh Ann McCoy, Debra Schlender, and Sarah and Adam Thurston), four great-grandchildren (Kyla Schlender, Jay Shadonix, and Andrew and Rebecca Shadonix).

    Having known Glen for the many years at church that we shared and served together and knowing his family and the occasions we had (church gatherings, dinner theatre, telephone conversations, etc.), I can honestly say he was one of the most “calm, cool, and collected people” I have known. He was a good friend. He even volunteered his furniture finishing skill to repair an antique chair I own, that was damaged.
    I will miss his presence.

    Always enjoyed Glen’s company! We played poker together at the legion and he was a great pal to have around. He will truly be missed.

    Glen and I were good friends. We saw each other at our class reunion in 2019 and talked about
    the good old times we had in high school. I was sad to hear of his passing.
