March 9, 1933April 25, 2021

A.D. Wooten, was called home on April 25, 2021 by natural causes. He was born in Lubbock, Texas on Thursday, March 9, 1933 at 7:20AM to Charles Albert and Mertie May Thomas Wooten. He was preceded in death by his parents, his soul mate Dorothy Ruth McCouley Wooten, 3 sisters and 4 brothers. He is survived by brothers, Jimmy and Roy Wayne, children, Jerry Don and Tina, Eddie Dewayne, Margaret Ruth and Dennis, Robert Brian and Shawn, 9 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.

He began his working career at very early age in his father’s blacksmith shop in Lubbock, Texas. He worked hard all his life providing for his family. He was a welder, mechanic, oil mill compress worker, and worked with his father’s Stucco business. He also worked many years in the water well business, which he owned and operated. His passion was tinkering with tools and using his hands to build large things with his welder and the smallest of things as well. He was very creative. If he could see it in his mind, he could build it.

We want to acknowledge Mildred and Shirley at Garrison Geriatric Center and Hospice of The South Plains for their endearing love and care. His family was his life and his children will forever miss the man they called daddy.

Visitation will be Friday, April 30, 2021 at First Baptist Church of Crosbyton from 9:00AM until the time of service at 10:00AM. Burial will follow at Resthaven Memorial Park, Lubbock, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you take a moment to hug your child, grandchild, friend. Stop and take a breath. Appreciate life around you.
