Harley Wayne Lammers
Feb. 29, 1936 – Jan. 14, 2018
Harley Wayne Lammers was born in Ovid, Colorado, on Feb. 29, 1936, to Harley John and Martha (Lee) Lammers. He entered into rest Jan. 14, 2018, in Ontario, Oregon.
Wayne left Colorado with his family when he was very young. They lived briefly in Boise before settling in Little Valley, Oregon. He helped his parents carve a productive ranch out of sagebrush. Along the way, he acquired a lifelong love of farming, and he was a good farmer. Wayne was very proud to be able to pass the ranch on to the third and fourth generation of Lammers men.
Wayne went to school in Harper and never ventured far from home or stayed away for long.
He married Mary Louise Richey on May 26, 1955 in Vale. She preceded him in death on Sept. 12, 2017.
Together Wayne and Mary farmed several areas of Little Valley. They raised Red Angus cattle, beautiful roses, and three amazing kids.
Wayne had cattle for the income, he farmed because he loved it, but his passion was anything he could do in his truck. In his younger days he would start hauling sweet corn, then silage, spuds and hay. He looked like a haystack on wheels when he delivered hay to Juntura, Beaulah, Drewsey, and Crane. No matter the weather or the road conditions, if he got a call for hay delivery, he was on the way. He finished hay hauling just about the time to start spring farm work.
Wayne is survived by daughter Betty (Steve) Warden; son Don Lammers; daughter Lucia (Danny) Claborn; eight grandchildren, Shawna Warden, Kyle (Christina)Lammers, Jason (Jazzy)Lammers, Adam Lammers, Daniel (Megan) Claborn, McKenzie Claborn, Emily(Tyler) Mitchell, Katie Claborn; three great-grandchildren Kelli and Gage Lammers, Brantley Claborn, and Jackson Mitchell due in April 2018.
Please join us to celebrate Wayne’s life and share memories of his escapades Jan. 27 from 2-4 p.m .at Parrish Hall, 690 A St W, Vale.
