Born March 18, 1959, son of Rodney and Sally Payne, he graduated from Canfield High School in 1977. Rodney was most proud of his Navy service in the submarine corp. from 1980 -1986. After leaving the Navy, he worked for a variety of Defense Contractors in Ca, AZ, and Texas. His last job was with a telecommunications company as an electronics engineer.

Rodney loved VFW Post 4011, Greenville, TX where he lived for over 20 yrs. He returned to the Valley in 2019 to be closer to family.  Hobbies included photography, drawing, wood carving, and weekends at the range. “Junior” loved sharing his stories with any who would listen, off label music, and hearty banter.

Rodney will be missed by his son, Carl Payne of Grafton, WI, mother Sally Payne of Canfield, brother and sister-in-law Kevin (Jacqueline), neices Chynella and Shantell of Boardman , and brother and sister-in-law Jeffery (Mary) of Youngstown.
