Wayne “Butch" Alvin Harlan, Jr, 66, of Anadarko passed away unexpectedly on Monday, March 16, 2020 at his home in Anadarko. He was born on September 19, 1953 to Wayne Alvin, Sr and Thelma Faye (Long) Harlan in Denison, TX. Butch's father worked in construction and moved his family where the work was.

After he moved to Oklahoma, Butch met the love of his life, Marla Lee and on June 17, 1972, they were married. From this marriage came two children, Eric Wayne and Jill Briann.
Butch worked in the construction industry and was also a carpenter. He enjoyed working on old cars and refurbishing old guns. Butch loved his family very much. He especially loved spending time with his grandchildren. He will be deeply missed by all that knew and loved him.
Butch was preceded in death by his parents Wayne, Sr. and Thelma Harlan.
