  1. Condolences to the Family and Friends of Charles “Wayne” Kilgore. My Folks went on a road trip to Kansas in August 1955 via Elida, New Mexico where we met the Dixon’s and Kilgore and Killgore families. My wife and I visited Wayne and Teresa in March 2004 as we wanted to re-link with paternal cousins. Living in California we didn’t get to that area very often. Interesting that Wayne and I did the same type of occupations. marvnpet 2 aol dot com

  2. Wayne (Brother Wayne, to me) showed a great example of a godly man. While attending the Clovis NM Church of God of Prophecy in the late 80s, early 90s, he was a great blessing. We enjoyed attending church, visiting, and dinners with them. We have been able to stop and visit a few times and sat and listened to Wayne’s stories for hours. We pray God’s help and strength for each of you at this time.
