Keith Robert Wadley was born November 24, 1951 in Yokohama, Japan to Jack and Dorothy Wadley. He passed from this life on November 13, 2016. He loved telling stories about living in Alaska as a young boy before the family moved to Oklahoma City. He attended Putnam City High School before marrying Lana Bauman with whom he had two sons, Tracy Wadley and Seth Wadley. He soon discovered his calling in the car business where he quickly made a name for himself, and is still known as one of the best of all time. Keith loved road trips by RV, car or motorcycle. And he particularly enjoyed traveling to Florida, and to see his favorite musicians play around the Hill Country of Texas. In 2009 he married Patricia Farrell Wadley, with whom he had been close for many years. Keith passed his love of the car business on to both of his sons who have also built careers in the automotive world. Although in declining health in recent years, Keith remained passionate about the car business, he was always looking for new ideas which he would pass on to Seth to use in his business, and he also loved to follow the stock market. He was very proud of his grandchildren, Tessa, Gavin, Cameron, Spence, Blake and Mak. He is preceded in death by his father, Jack Wadley; his mother, Dorothy Keel; his step-father, Kenneth Keel; his brother, Kent Wadley, sister-in-law, Rose Wadley; and brother-in-law, Michael Mitchell. He is survived by his sister, Sandra Mitchell; his wife, Patricia Wadley; his son, Tracey and his wife Sami Wadley; his son, Seth and his wife Nina Wadley; his step-daughter, Jessica Morris Knutson and her husband Clayton Knutson; six grandchildren; two nephews; one niece; beloved Golden Retriever, Buck; and many friends.
