Paul Eric Payne, 68, of Chester, NJ passed away on Thursday, June 15, 2017.  Paul was born on December 18, 1948 in Hastings, Nebraska.  He has lived in Chester for the past 29 years and was previously lived in Piscataway, NJ.  Paul was a retired Technology Consultant for General Electric.

Paul loved being outdoors, and enjoyed fishing, skiing, tennis, and chess.  He was very involved with his children’s sports when they were growing up, and coached youth soccer and baseball.  Even though Paul moved away from Nebraska, he was always an avid University of Nebraska Cornhuskers football fan.  He also enjoyed teaching and was a CCD instructor and an inner city school tutor.  Paul’s hobby was investment strategies.  Most of all, Paul enjoyed time with his family, both traveling and attending their games and events.
