David Andrew Bayne went home to be with his LORD and SAVIOR Jesus Christ on October 13th, 2019.  He will be missed by his family and countless friends. David was born on March 1st, 1958 in Glasgow, Montana to Oliver David Bayne and Grace Lillian Bayne. David was raised in Glasgow. He participated in football and wrestling. David graduated from Glasgow High School in 1977. He joined the U.S.  Navy and proudly served his country for seven years. He served aboard the USS Kennedy. He attended Montana State University in Bozeman for three years. He married Lindy Swier in 1994. Through his marriage to Lindy, he gained a wonderful daughter and son. Though they later divorced, they remain a valuable part of David's family and life.

David counted it as one of his greatest privileges and blessings to work for Tony Knick at Knick Machining. He worked for Knick Machining for 17 years and considered Tony, the Knick family and all the employees as his family. David was honored to be a member of the men's Thursday morning prayer breakfast at the E-Free church in Bozeman. He considered each man there as his brother. David would like to honor the Meidinger family in Glasgow. David grew up next door to the Meidinger family and considered all eleven of the Meidinger children as his brothers and sisters. Since David's dad died when David was only 5 years old, David considered Elmer and Marion Meidinger as his second parents. As a  teenager, he worked with Elmer moving houses all over Northeastern Montana. He cherished all the time he had with their family. He spent the majority of his days and evenings at their home. 

David was a beautiful soul and one of the kindest  men on earth. He was a beacon of hope and kindness to everyone he met. He endured several physical hardships for thirty years and never once complained about having to endure the physical trials. David was known for always caring for others and putting others ahead of himself. He had a great love for others and a passion for sharing the love of Jesus. 

Celebration of Life Services will be held at the E-Free church in Bozeman on Saturday, October 26th at 11:00 a.m. Graveside services will be held on June 20, 2020 at the Highland Cemetery in Glasgow. The time for that service will be announced at a later date. 

Survivors include his sister, Debbie (Bayne) Brown and his nephew, Jeremy Brown, his daughter Natalie Robinson, his son Brandy Tudor and two grandsons Taj and Tre Barney, his Aunt Betty Martin of Billings, MT and a special cousin in love, Jonnie Ruth Conatser of Choteau, MT. In addition, he is survived by several cousins, two son-in-love's Nick Barney and Kelly Robinson, and Kelly's three children. 

David was preceded in death by his parents, his maternal grandparents Fred and Emma Whitbread and his paternal grandparents Scotty and Beatrice Bayne.

The family extends its deepest appreciation to the wonderful medical staff at Bozeman Deaconess Hospital and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. Deepest thanks to Dr. Timothy Adams, Dr. David McGlothlin, Dr. Andrew Gentry, Tony Knick and family, the men's Thursday morning prayer breakfast, E-Free church, and Clark and Phyllis Mueller with Cowboy Church.

Thank you to all of David's friends for the part you played in his life. He was very thankful for your friendship and love. His greatest desire would be to see everyone join him in heaven where he is rejoicing with the LORD. 

In lieu of flowers, the family suggest memorials in David's memory to the Zoe Pregnancy Center, 2251 West Kagy, Suite 2, Bozeman, Montana 59718, or Mercy Medical Angels, 4620 Haygood Road, Suite #1 Virginia Beach, Virginia 23455, or online at mercymedical,org (monetary donations and or frequent flyer miles).
