Anthony Wayne Guthrie
Anthony Wayne Guthrie was born in OKC on January 19, 1960. He left this world after a brief struggle with cancer on December the 23rd, 2016. His parents were Bettie and Ed Knox. He was survived by his mother Bettie Knox (he called her “My Best Girl”, his sister and brother-in-law Lisa and James Bettencourt, 3 nieces and nephews and a bunch of great nieces and nephews. He also left behind 4 children who loved him dearly, Matthew, Mariah, Madison and Wyatt, and 10 grandchildren to boot!
He worked the better part of his life in the oilfields of Oklahoma and had spent the last 15 years of his life with his work family Payne Exploration.
For recreation he loved hunting, fishing, and gardening. He was very proud of the years it took him to get his garden “just right”.
He loved Lake Eufala and his boat 2nd best after his family.
He and Paco (his dog who moved in shortly after we did and is reaching the end of his years) were best friends and the kids say he mimicked Anthony.
Anthony was cremated and his ashes will be spread on the lake that he so loved.
His children have requested a “wake” so we are having a memorial to celebrate his life and share personal stories about him at his home in Crescent on Jan 7, 2017. Visitors are free to come and go from noon to 6.
He is also memorialized on the web at Oklahomacitycremation.com
If you can’t attend the memorial you can sign the guestbook and leave comments there.
Please send live plants in lieu of cut flowers.

My prayers are with your family. Anthony was so good to my husband Jason and was definitely considered a close friend. May God lay His healing hand on you all.

Anthony was my uncle. I haven’t seen him in years because we lost touch after him and my Aunt Sherryll separated. It wasn’t until the last 3 years when my aunt Sherryll and him started talking again that I thought I was finally going to meet up with him. He wanted to see all of us but we never set up times and dates.
Oh I wish we would have made the time to see each other again. I really wanted to meet your children and catch up. Anthony you were my uncle for 20 years. I will forever cherish all the memories especially lake Eufaula. You were the one who helped me net my first big fish I caught all by myself. You had the proud uncle look.
Alissa cried when I told her. She spent most of her first 8 years on yours or papa’s boat.
I just wish I would have made the time to meet with you all those times you asked Aunt Sherryll the past 3 years.
To his Children, my hear aches for you. Your dad was a good man. From all my aunt told me from their conversations, don’t ever doubt his love for you.
To his mom, Alisha, and the rest of his family I don’t know if you remember me but I am truly sorry for your loss. I know he loved you all with all his heart. Take the memories and rejoice in his love he shared with you.
May you all find peace and comfort in this trying time.
My condolences and love,
