Wayne  Hampton
     Wayne Hampton, 91, died on Monday, July 31, 2017 at North Platte Care Facility. He was born on July 26, 1926, to Glee and Erma (Boyer) Hampton in Mullen.
     Wayne attended the Reigle school north of Mullen until his parents moved to Missouri in 1935. Wayne came back to Mullen when he was 15 years old and lived with his grandmother, Mary Enis (James) Boyer. He attended school in Mullen until the 11th grade. He then finished his last year of high school in Missouri.
     Wayne was united in marriage to Betty Milander on Dec. 21, 1948. To this union two boys were born: Don and Dale.
     Wayne worked on construction for 20 years. While he was on construction he became the head master mechanic for Peter Kiewit. This was a tremendous honor since he trained himself.
     After construction Wayne and Betty moved back to Mullen to work for his father-in-law, Glenn Milander at Milander Motors.
     In 1976 Wayne and Betty purchased the Gibson Agency, later named the Hampton Agency. Wayne was a licensed agent and broker until they sold in 1996.
     Wayne is survived by his wife, Betty; sons, Don (Teresa) and Dale; sister, Luceil Ashlock of Missouri; sister-in-law, Sherry Hampton of South Carolina; and other family.
     Wayne was preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Erma Jean Conley and Leta Mae Fisher; brothers, Stanley, Orvel, and Norman; brothers-in-law, David Snider, Jim Fisher, and Harley Ashlock; and sisters-in-law, Lois (Gorsuch) Hampton and Lometa Hampton.
     Services were held Aug. 7 at the Assembly of God Church in Mullen. Interment was at Cedarview Cemetery in Mullen. Mullen Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
     Memorials may be given to the Mullen Assembly of God Church or Cedarview Cemetery.
