Dewayne E. Green, 79, lifelong Guymon resident, passed away Friday morning, May 10, 2019 at Memorial Hospital of Texas County.
The son of Pearl (Behne) and Earl Green, Wayne was born October 17, 1939 in Guymon. Wayne graduated from Guymon High School with the Class of 1957. He dated, fell in love and married that cute little Trent gal, and Wayne and Lille Rae Trent were united in marriage on July 18, 1959 in Clayton, New Mexico. They both returned to their families’ homes after running off to get married in Clayton after a roping, as they were too poor and scared to tell their parents. That young love lasted for 59 years. Wayne and Lillie raised their family, worked hard and went to a lot more ropin’s over the years. Wayne first worked for Behne Construction after high school and began his 34 year career with Texas County Feedyard. He retired as the Cattle Foreman. Wayne then worked for ADM Elevator as the fertilizer specialist for another 13 years. He and Lillie enjoyed their retirement, grandkids, all their family, and a lot more ropin’s and rodeos. Wayne was an excellent header and always did his partner a good catch in team roping.
Wayne is survived by his wife of almost 60 years, Lillie Green; children, Terry Green and wife, Norma; and Tammy Hans and husband, John, all of Guymon; his sister, Debbie Ninemire and husband, Greg of Hardesty, OK; and sisters-in-law, Laurie Green, Betty Cruzan and husband, Melvin, Doris Cobb and husband, Gary. He was Papa to his grandsons, Tanner Green and wife, Tara, Trey Terry, Marty Hans and Austin Lozano; and two perfect great grandchildren, Tatum Rae and Tripp Wayne Green; and he was Uncle Wayne to many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his in-laws, Harold and Dorothy Trent, and his brother, Ronnie Green.
