John Henry Baine, 66, of Frankford, departed this earthly place and entered into eternal rest Wednesday Jan. 29, 2020, at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford, after suffering a prolonged illness. John was born Sunday, Jan. 24, 1954. He was preceded in death by his wife Clementine Baine; his father Alonzo Baine; and mother, Marie Baine-Tingle.
John was known as Buster, Daddy Cool, Froggie, and Bro Baine. John received his education in Worcester High and graduated from Snow Hill High School. John was employed by Townsend Poultry for many years in Millsboro, where he also drove the bus; then he left there and went to Kent-Sussex Industries, where he drove the van until he retired. John also worked at Frankford Post Office. He was a loving husband and a hardworking father. He loved his family dearly and was a dedicated father, a loving person; nobody was a stranger to him.
He was a member of Trinity Holiness Church where Apostle Larry Morris and his lovely Prophetess Beth Morris preside. John really loved his church; he was a people person. You couldn’t help but love him, he loved Jesus and loved to praise God; he was always praising God and giving him the glory. When he was sick, and you asked him how he was doing, he would say, “I’m kicking; I’m still kicking by the help of the Lord.” He was a jolly person who loved to cut up with different ones. He was also a deacon at the church. John also served in the United States Army and was given an honorable discharge.
He leaves to cherish his memory: his daughter, Jonnika Waters (Clifton) of Salisbury, Md.; five sons, John Baine Jr. (Charade) of Denton, Md., Mark Baine of Pennsylvania, Kennell Baine of Frankford, Jai Baine of Atlanta, Ga., and Terrell Hinton of Frankford; his first wife, Rose Baine; two sisters, Margie Brown and Anna Cannon of Seaford; one brother, Alonzo (Lorraine) Baine of Virginia; and a host of stepchildren, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and friends. Celebration of life service will be held at noon, Saturday, Feb. 15, at Trinity Holiness Church, 34676 Delaware Ave., Frankford. Family and friends may visit two hours prior to service.
