Dennis Wayne Langford, age 77, of Roswell passed away Wednesday, July 26, 2017.

Dennis Wayne Langford was born on April 30, 1940 in Floydada, Texas to Dennis Estelle Langford & Dollie Maybelle Dufer.

Wayne grew up in Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico. He attended school first at Stetson & finished at Ruidoso High School in 1958.
In 1960 he married Leanita Alldredge. They have two daughters; Sherri Bussell and Ramona Becker.

He worked as a lineman for Otero County Electric, Gardner-Zemke Electric Construction and then worked 27 years for Southwestern Public Service in Roswell, until he retired in 1999.

Wayne had many endearing names. He was known as Slim, Linger, Skinny, Daddy, Grandpa and WayneGo.

Wayne was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Eugene Langford.

He is survived by his wife, Leanita, of 55 years; brother Bob of Las Cruces, NM; daughters Ramona Becker (Dieter) of Alamogordo, NM, Sherri Bussell of Farmington, NM, Tess White of Roswell, NM; grandchildren, Shane Clarke (Trisha) and Brandon Clarke (Hannah) of Farmington, NM, Ty Bussell of Roswell, NM, Samantha Johnson (Philip Patterson -fiance) of Las Cruces, NM and adopted granddaughter Zoie White of Las Cruces, NM.

The family would like to thank the many health care providers, family and friends that provided support, encouragement and love during Wayne's long illness. We want to thank the special staff of Hospice; Francis, Stacy, Tim, Glynn, Jessica, and Anita.

In honor of Wayne's request, there will be no formal service. The family will have a private service at a
