Obituary of Kevin M Payne

Kevin M. Payne, 32, of Utica, passed away on Wednesday, February 10, 2021, at his home. He was born on October 1, 1988, in Oneida, the son of Matthew Payne and Wendy Brooks. Kevin attended Canastota Schools. Kevin was previously employed by Human Technologies Corp in Utica. Kevin was a little boy that grew into a loving, caring man. He loved to read science-fiction and play video games. You would find him reading or playing his Xbox. He preferred dogs over cats, watching tv rather than listening to music. When he was a kid, he spent his days outside riding his bike. Then Kevin found drugs. He fought a long hard battle with them. The fight to get clean, only to find drugs again, and then get clean again. Kevin knew one more time would kill him. He told his family this. The next time came on Wednesday, February 10, 2021. Surviving are his parents, Andrew and Wendy Foster, of Blossvale, and Matthew (Tracey) Payne, of Oneida; his siblings, Brandi Brooks, of Hohenwald, TN, Andy McCormick, of Blossvale, Kyle Foster (fiancé, Kayla Wallon), of Fulton, Marlana Foster (fiancé, Dustin Stevens), of Blossvale, Hope Foster, of Utica, Brittany Foster, of Utica, and Isabelle Payne, of Oneida; his maternal grandmother, Sandra Youngs, of Oneida; his paternal grandmother, Denice Shelley, of Clockville; his paternal grandfather, Myron Hartzog, of Blossvale; five nieces, Eveangeline, Kendra, Brooke, Andie, and Iris; a nephew, Clarence; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Kevin was predeceased by his paternal grandmother, Bonney Hartzog; his maternal grandfather, Edward Brooks; his paternal grandfather, Robert Shelley; and an aunt, Bonnie Bodin. Private services will be held at the convenience of the family. There are no calling hours. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Ironside Funeral Home, Inc., 342 Main St., Oneida.
