William “Dino” Dean Payne Jr.

Nov. 23, 1959 – March 11, 2017

Tribal Elder William “Dino” Dean Payne Jr., 57, was born on Nov. 23, 1959, to Myrna and Bruce Brickell in Ukiah, Calif. The family later moved to the West Valley where he grew up as one of 10 children, having five brothers and four sisters.

He graduated from Willamina High School, where he played football, enjoyed his friends and occasionally got into a bit of light trouble.

After graduation, he worked for Fort Hill Lumber on the planer and later for Safeway as a meat cutter.

Dino met Lori Weaver in 1984 and they married in 1985 in Reno, Nev.

He loved golf, gaming, cigars, grilling and Reno, but most of all his family.

He will be remembered for his friendship, teasing and great zingers that would plant a smile on the faces of those nearby.

Dino was preceded in death by his parents, William Payne Sr. and Myrna Jean (Langley) Payne, and brothers, Dan Payne and Jim Brickell.

He is survived by his wife, Lori (Weaver) Payne; brothers, Jay Payne, Ed Brickell and Ken Brickell; and sisters, Mary Brickell, Peggy Ollgaard, Chris Murrell and Lisa Fredinburg.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, March 16, at Adamson’s Sheridan Funeral Home, 108 N.W. Lincoln St., Sheridan, with a meal service at the Grand Ronde Elders Activity Center, 48940 Blacktail Drive, afterward.
