Wayne Lamar Brumbeloe, 55 of McComb, MS passed away unexpectedly Friday, October 19, 2018 at MS Regional Medical Center. He was born on Eglin Airforce Base in Fort Walton, FL on November 1, 1962. Wayne never met a stranger, gave freely of himself, frequently performing random acts of kindness for loved ones, friends and strangers. Wayne understood life is often filled with heartache, trials and tribulations which allowed him to easily recognize others in need. Wayne strived to be a true and honest friend to everyone he met as he traveled through his life.

Throughout his life he was an avid weight lifter, football and baseball enthusiast. He was an excellent baseball player from his youth, he was offered scholarships and scouts from the Houston Astros offered him a chance to be part of the team.

He began working in the Petroleum Industry at the age of 16-stretching the truth about his age to gain employment. Wayne worked his way through the ranks from breaking out offshore to becoming an Independent Drilling Consultant, most recently working for Paloma Operations in Oklahoma, previously he worked for Freedom Oil & Gas, Conoco Phillips, Marathon Oil and others during the course of his 38-year career. Like many in his profession the long hours away from home limited time spent with family. His daughter Kara was always a blessing. Wayne was a doting grandfather, “my little Evie is so precious, I just love her, she is the highlight of my life.”

He was a caring and loving husband to his wife Paula, teenage sweetheart who was the love of his life once reconnected they married in 2013. They traveled taking many adventures together. Some included a first for them. While in San Francisco this year Wayne experienced live theater for the first time. He was filled with reservation about what his beautiful wife was dragging him into. Wayne enjoyed the show and wanted to go to the theater again. In truth Wayne was adventurous and with Paula beside him they trailblazed together
