Wiley August Stowers, 92, of Lamont, OK has entered the kingdom of heaven. He was born on November 1, 1929 in Elmdale, KS to Everett L. Stowers and Ida Marie Koch Stowers. Raised on a farm he attended a rural school in Garfield County. After high school, he worked in the oil field until his retirement at age 65. Wiley worked for a few companies over the years as a tool pusher and a rig hand. He met the love of his life, Lucile Marie Kroll. On July 9 of 1950, they were joined in holy matrimony at the Lutheran Church of Garber, the very church we will lay him to rest in this Sunday. They were happily married for over 71 years. He never quit farming though, he planted and harvested wheat and grew alfalfa to bale. Wiley was a John Deere Man tried and true, he enjoyed cutting his own wheat as a younger man. A great spoiler of grandchildren, Wiley was a devoted husband, father, and papa. His favorite past time was spending time with his family.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
