So sad. Mr. Payne was my Drivers Ed teacher @ N E Guilford. As my own son learns to drive this year, I will be using the "pink elephant" technique! RIP

I'll never forget Mr. Payne teaching us to drive. One of the bravest men I've ever known to get in the car with us kids. Rest in peace, sir. Karen Jackson Cook, NEHS Class of'93

So sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Payne. What a wonderful memory from my younger years at Northeast Guilford. My deepest sympathy to the entire family.

I would see him in the drivers ed car on the road when I was returning after dark in the bus from driving the cross country team or the track team back to...

Mr Payne was our Driver's Ed instructor at NE Guilford. I remember him well and the pink elephant! I'm sure Kyron Hall and Ken Cofer have fond memories of him as well, as we had him for the driving portion of DE as well. My prayers are with Mr Payne's family. Holly R Class of 84

As a member of the NESH class of 1991, I am saddened to hear of Mr. Payne's passing. Sending the family my deepest condolences during this your hour of need. I know that there are probably thousands of us who are better drivers and even better people for having known him.

Such a funny and nice man. A great driver's ed teacher. His "Pink Elephant" was priceless. RIP Mr. Payne

Rest in peace cousin Roy. We had fun as kids at Grandma and Grandpa Paynes in Stokesdale. Then reconnected again briefly in the late 60's
