Anthony Dwayne Wadley (Tony) was born on December 31, 1967 at St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Stan and Sharon Wadley and passed from this life on Monday, May 29, 2017. He made the front page of the Daily Oklahoman for being the last baby born in 1967 and everyone always enjoyed celebrating his birthday on New Years Eve. Tony was a graduate of Durant High School and Southeastern Oklahoma State University and attended graduate school at TCU. Tony loved working with young people as a youth minister for several churches in the North Texas area while he was attending college. He went on to try several occupations before going to work for Crete Carrier Corp. He loved his job there as Fleet Manager because he said he got to be a counselor for all of the truck drivers. He loved visiting with them about their work and families and helping them any way he could. He then went on to work for Hills Pet Nutrition as a Team Leader where he got to continue his work with drivers while also working for a company that focused on pets, which was his other great love. Tony was preceded in death by his grandparents Mutt and Betty Wood, Emma Jean Wadley and Gene Wadley. Tony is survived by his parents Stan and Sharon brother Jon and wife Kathryn, niece and nephew Hope and Sean, his uncles Dell Wood and wife Sandy, Val Wood and wife Susan, his aunt Susan Griswold and one great aunt, Pat Herrell.
