WPJC.FM MOURNS THE LOSS OF WILLIS H. PAYNE JR
September 12, 1962-May 2, 2014
Willis Payne Jr had an aspiration for broadcast journalism, specifically radio, and a desire to help people pursue their dream of going live on the air.
He had a warm presence, deeply rooted in a sensitive, caring heart with a smile and a laugh that would light up the darkest of rooms. He was the personification of caring, sensitivity and love.
It was that sensitive and caring heart that changed my life. It was his caring heart that encouraged him to call me, at least every other day. He would say, “Hey my brother, just checking in. Is everything okay?"
As a psychologist and pastor, I can tell you that it is rare and seldom if ever, that people cross my life that genuinely cares about my needs. We talked several times a week for more than twenty years.
It was that caring heart that allowed our ministry to be heard all over the world and to have one of the most successful Christian counseling programs, gospel jazz concerts and an online gospel radio station. Willis Payne Jr. did that.
Will, was the voice of our radio station. He was the engineer, the practical thinker, the brains; he made it all work. Willis Payne Jr. did that.
To Sarah and Artesia; thank you for giving us someone who taught us to love, and how to care about others. Thank you for sharing someone, who used his life to serve and to serve us all.
Will, thank you my brother. I love you, and you will be missed!
