Richard Wayne McNett

Graveside services for Richard Wayne McNett, 89, Davis, were held Saturday, Nov. 14, at the Green Hill Cemetery in Davis with Bryan Pullen officiating.

Richard was born January 21, 1931 in Webb City, Oklahoma to the late Edgar R. and Alice C. (Punches) McNett. He died Tuesday, Nov. 10, in Oklahoma City.

Richard and the former Ms. Clara Imogene McKinney were united in marriage on August 30, 1950 in Pawhuska.

At the early age of 19, Richard began a career in the oil field industry working with Phillips Petroleum. After 35+ years with Phillips, Richard retired in the late 1980’s and moved to Davis, where he and Clara enjoyed their retirement years. Early in their retirement years, they enjoyed traveling and camping with family and friends. Richard’s most favorite pastime during retirement was working on bicycles. He was a very devoted husband, making sure Clara was always taken care of.

Survivors include his beloved wife, Clara; two daughters, Deborah Townsley, of Davis, and Pamela Zajac and husband, Edward, of Pennsylvania; six grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; three great-great grandchildren; one sister, Edna Grace, of Blackwell; seven nephews and two nieces.
