Wayman Donald Love went to be with the Lord on January 30, 2020. He was born on June 3, 1933 in Spur, Texas to Houston and Minnie Love.

He graduated from Colorado High School in 1951 and later attended Sul Ross State University where he lettered on the football team. He later served in the US Army for two years in Panama and was honorably discharged in 1956. Shortly later, he met the love of his life, Jerry Lysteen Cranfill and they were wed on April 19, 1957 in Roscoe, Texas.

Wayman worked 30 years for Chevron and retired as a drilling supervisor in the Snyder, Texas office. He later worked an additional two years as a drilling consultant for Chevron.

Dad loved quail hunting, fishing trips, college/pro football, investing, talking about the oilfield and listening to the Colorado Wolves on the radio. He loved talking with people and was the ultimate extrovert.

The family would also like to extend special thanks to Bobby/Jan Lemons, Nathan/ Cheryl Hoyle, Betty Sayger, David/Leslie Jones, Al Mendoza, Joan Beach, Possum/Kim Mann, members of Oak Street Baptist Church and First Baptist Church.

I have known Wayman most of my life. He was my dad's best friend. Those two were a pair! They both enjoyed "limbernecking " and checking progress on all things between CCity and Westbrook. On any given day they could be found driving REAL slow just making sure nothing new had popped up without their knowledge.
I am truly going to miss him in my world.
Rest in peace, sweet guy!

My fondest memory of Wayman, is when less than just two years ago, he drove out to the cemetery and offered his help with planting a butterfly tree, at my Dad’s gravesite. He even drove back to his house to retrieve a sledgehammer and a piece of water hose to brace the branches.
He calmly instructed Linda and myself as we worked. The planting was a success and the tree is flourishing, thanks to Wayman!!!! I will miss hearing him call me, “Cookie.” He was a great uncle!
