Sympathy Extended to Family and Associates of Bill Payne

July 25, 2020


JONESBORO – The university community extends sympathy to the family and former associates of William Carter (Bill) Payne, emeritus associate professor of clinical lab sciences, who died Tuesday.

Payne, a faculty member for 31 years before his retirement in 2019, taught classes in microbiology, immunology, parasitology, and blood banking.  He participated in collaborative research and published widely in wound healing.  Payne co-authored a widely used textbook on clinical microbiology.

He served on various university, college and departmental committees, including Faculty Senate.  Payne was honored with a faculty teaching award.

A scholarship fund has been donated by lifelong friends Dr. Stephen & Marsha Guffey in his honor and memory.  The “Bill Payne Excellence in Lab Science” scholarship is administered through the Arkansas State University Foundation.

Visitation will be 1-2 p.m. Friday, July 24, at Emerson Funeral Home, followed by a memorial service.  The Dean B. Ellis Library tower at A-State will be lighted scarlet Friday night in his memory. His obituary is online.
