Wesley Medlin

June 28, 1933 — January 29, 2024


Wesley Howard Medlin, a sweet and loyal man of God, passed away peacefully at the Baptist Nursing Center in Enid, Oklahoma on January 29, 2024. He was born on June 28, 1933, in Morton, Texas to proud parents Wesley Howard Medlin, Sr. and Grace Marie Stevens Medlin. Wesley's life was characterized by his unwavering dedication to his career, his commitment to service, and his strong faith.


Wesley made a career out of working for the phone company. He dedicated many years of his life to this profession, displaying a remarkable work ethic and a genuine passion for his job. Through his hard work and dedication, he became an admirable figure within the industry.


Wesley was a proud graduate of Odessa High School in the spring of 1952. His thirst for knowledge and love for learning laid the foundation for a lifetime of wisdom and intellectual growth.


In addition to his professional achievements, Wesley proudly served in the U.S. Navy. His years of military service further exemplified his selflessness and devotion to his country. Wesley's contributions to the Navy will be remembered with gratitude and respect.


A devoted husband and father, Wesley cherished the love and companionship he shared with his beloved wives and children. He was first married to Zora Louise Berry Medlin on November 3, 1956, in Odessa, Texas.  From this union came seven children: Wayne, Debra, Pamela, Warren, Steven, Joseph and Greg.   After her passing Wesley remarried Dottie Medlin on June 8, 1996 in Dennison, Texas. Together, they created a loving and nurturing environment for their children.  


Wesley's proudest accomplishments went beyond his professional success. He volunteered for the Rio Grande Bible Institute where they sold Bibles and provided assistance to those in need within their community. This commitment to helping others reflected Wesley's compassionate nature and desire to make a positive impact on those around him.


Wesley will forever be remembered by his surviving family members including son Wayne H. Medlin of Colorado, daughter Debra J. Medlin of Garber, daughter Pamela Gilbert of Texas, son Warren Medlin and his wife Charlie of Texas. He also leaves behind eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren who will carry on his legacy with pride. Wesley's memory will be cherished by his brother Charles Medlin and his wife Judy of California, sister Joyce Banks of Texas, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.


Wesley was preceded in death by his father Wesley Howard Medlin Sr., mother Grace Marie Stevens, wife Zora Medlin, wife Dottie Medlin, son Steven Medlin, son Joseph Medlin, son Greg Medlin, daughter-in-law Maria Medlin, brother O. Wayne Medlin. He also leaves behind a brother-in-law Danny Gilbert and brother-in-law Leo Banks. Although he is no longer with us, Wesley's spirit will continue to live on through the memories and lives he has touched.


Wesley Howard Medlin will be fondly remembered as a dedicated professional, a loving family man, and a faithful servant of God. His humble demeanor, kind-heartedness, and unwavering faith will forever serve as an inspiration to all who had the privilege of knowing him. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
