Michael "Hollywood" Payne

Michael Antonio Payne departed this life on Saturday, February 20, 2022. He was born in Nashville, TN on December 6, 1979, to Shari Payne Rouse and Johnny Conaway. He was preceded in death by grandmothers, Norma Conaway and Mary Frances Voorhies.

Michael attended the Nashville Public Schools of Davidson County. He was employed by Bond Transit Trucking Company. He enjoyed driving and he had a true passion for his cars.

Michael accepted Christ at an early age and united with the Gethsemane Baptist Church. He loved his family, but most of all he adored his daughters (Dasia, Aviaonna, Alaonna Payne and Hailey Black).

Michael was somewhat of a jokester, he enjoyed making people happy. You could say that he loved making people laugh. It wasn’t strange for him to play a joke on his family at a drop of a hat. He loved his family and his family loved him.

Michael leaves to cherish his loving mother Shari and step-father Stephen Rouse Jr.; father Johnny (Shuntika) Conaway; daughters: Dasia, Aviaonna and Alaonna Payne; Step daughter: Hailey Jeneice Black; Grandfather: Charles Conaway Sr.; Brothers: Nick (Sothia) Owens, Stephen (Ronnay) Rouse III, Johnny (Fa’Drianne) Conaway and Charles Conaway; Sisters: Talithia (Jason) Richardson, Johnetta (Derrick) Whitaker, Latarsha (Donnell) Springer and Natasha Rouse; Great Aunts: Beulah Mai Dotson, Betty Dotson, Ida Mai Dotson and Mary Dotson. Aunts: Nora, Leora, Angela Payne, Jamie Coleman, Deneen Coleman-Ruff, Robyn Sims, Charsie (Tony) Johnson, Angela (Bobby) Hines, Donna and Raquel Conaway; Uncles: James (Dorothy) Scott, William Scott, Albert Sims, Michael Rouse and Christopher (Norma) Conaway; Devoted friends: Noone, James, and Mike Swann; a host of cousins, other family and friends too numerous to mention.

Visitation Saturday, April 16, 2022 11-12 with Memorial Service to follow at the funeral home.
