John R. Paine, 63, of Taylorville, passed away at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at Memorial Medical Center in Springfield.

John was born January 4, 1958 in Taylorville, the son of Arthur T. “Cotton” and Loraine E. (Williams) Paine. John married Sandy Brun on September 9, 1978 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Taylorville, where they are still members today.

John graduated from Morrisonville High School in 1977. He worked for New Products, Seidel & Shaw Furniture, and operated Mr. C’s Game Room, before gaining employment with the City of Taylorville, as Lake Patrol where he was still currently employed for the past 24 years. John also owned and operated Fat Man, Inc. where he was a repossessor for the past 24 years. He would help anyone with anything.  John organized and ran the Taylorville Lake Car Cruise for many years. His love for cars carried over to his own garage, where he restored his pride and joy, a 1970 Chevy Camaro. John was an avid pool player, playing and organizing various leagues over the years. He loved music, and spent most of his free time in the garage listening to KSHE 95, or watching westerns and reruns of the Andy Griffith Show. Above all, John loved his family, and would do anything for them.     

He was preceded in death by his parents; son, Kevin Paine; sisters, Joyce Clements and Donna L. Paine; and nieces, Paula and Shirley Clements.

John is survived by his wife, Sandy Paine of Taylorville; children, Kyle (wife, Kayla) Paine, Kristin (husband, Chris) Jameson, and Katelyn Paine, all of Taylorville; grandchildren, Alexus, Dontrell, Alizabeth, Kianna, Kylie, Oliver, and Connor; brother, Art (wife, Renee) Paine, Jr. of Morrisonville; brother-in-law, Donald Clements, Sr. of Morrisonville; and several nieces and nephews.
