Wayne Truman Hammons, 81, passed away Feb. 14, 2017. He was born June 4, 1935.

Wayne retired from McCoy's Tree Service. He was an active member of Church of the First Born. He loved country music and old westerns, sitting on the porch feeding his birds, taking Thursday drives to random places with his brother John Francis and visiting with nephew Mike. Anyone that knew Wayne also knew he was the happiest of men the last 2 years since reuniting with Ann, his long lost love. His favorite song was “Together Again.”

He is preceded in death by his parents John and Laura, brothers Laverne, J.L., Mac, Ted and Gene, one infant sister and wife Juanita.

He is survived by wife of the home Ann, children Connie and Jeff, California, Terry, Texas, John and husband Bernie, Missouri, Cherry and husband Houston, Shawnee, Carl and wife Wendy, Oklahoma city, brother John Francis and wife Janet, Shawnee, and many grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. Saturday Feb. 18 at Church of the First Born in Shawnee.
