Pastor David C. Payton

March 10, 1957 — February 12, 2022

Pastor David C. Payton, 64, Zephyrhills, Florida, entered into Heaven’s Gates February 12, 2022. David was born March 10, 1957, in Martinsville, to the late Vernon Clyde and Gladys Irene (Wilson) Payton. David married Patti (Carter) Payton on July 29, 1974, and she survives.

David graduated from Monrovia High School in 1976 and continued his Biblical and seminary training. He was an active evangelist and ordained in 1980. He was pastor of Harvest Temple Church of God in Sullivan, Warriors Triumphant in Logansport, South Lake Church of God in Hobart, and retired from Refuge Worship Center, Logansport in February of 2021. David’s ministry and love for the Lord helped many become followers of Jesus Christ. He was a people person who never met a stranger. He was also very athletic and active – he enjoyed golf, softball, pickleball, basketball and trash-talking all the while. He loved playing and watching all kinds of sports. He simply loved to be on the sideline of his grandchildren’s sporting events. The memories of David Payton will be forever cherished by a loving family and many friends.
