October 16, 1940 — March 9, 2017

John William “Bill” Bayne,76, passed away with his family near on Thursday March 9, 2017 at Pilgrim Manor in Plymouth.

Bill was born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada on October 16, 1940 to William and Effie (Ballsille) Bayne, where he graduated from high school. He was in the Canadian Service for three years after graduation.

On July 7, 1973 in Teegarden, Indiana, Bill married the former Phyllis Sue Johnston at her family home. The couple made the area their home for the last 45 years, coming from Nova Scotia, Canada. The highlight of Bill’s life was becoming a U.S. Citizen on February 27, 1997.

Bill was a long-time member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, where he was also involved with Boy Scouts in the church. Bill worked at U.S. Granules as a supervisor for over 20 years. He loved long walks, taking in all God had to offer. He enjoyed fishing, hockey and playing guitar, but what enjoyed most were family dinners and his bride’s good cooking.
