MITCHELL – Doel Dwayne Baughman, 82, passed away Sunday, November 27, 2022 at his residence.

Born March 2, 1940, in Charlestown, he was the son of Spencer and Ruby (Standiford) Baughman.  He married Nancy Russell July 28, 1973 and she preceded him in death January 15, 1995.  He then married Claudia Jean “Jeannie” Helton May 7, 2004 and she preceded him in death March 27, 2010.

    Dwayne was a fun and funny uncle. Called my sisters and I, rat finks – lovingly, of course! He and I both attended the Herron School of Art. He was a talented illustrator. Once when I was very young, I asked him to draw me. He did, but drew me from the back as if he were looking through me! It was amazing, but I was not happy. He had a good laugh on me! He laughed with his eyes – they sparkled.

    I’ve known Dwayne from our school days in the 1950’s. In recent years years, he was a regular attendee at our weekly Wednesday luncheons of like-minded individuals in the Indianapolis area. He made many good friends at these events and was probably best known for his t-shirts. He will be missed by all. Rest in peace old friend.

    I had the pleasure of working with Dwayne, and having dinner with him and Nancy at your house a very long time ago. What a great man! I’m sorry for all your loss. I loved his nickname for me and won’t publish it here. He always found the bright spot in a situation. I will miss him!
