Dylan Mair, 31, of Choctaw, Oklahoma, passed away on Saturday, July 3, at OU Medical Center, with his wife, Angela, at his side. He died after a tragic accident. Dylan was born July 6, 1989, in Ogden, Utah, to Randy and Juanita Mair.
He was baptized and confirmed at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in Fort Bridger, and attended Messiah Lutheran Church in Oklahoma City with his wife. Dylan attended schools in Mountain View, and the University of Wyoming, graduating with a degree in chemical engineering. After working in Texas, Colorado and Wyoming, he moved to Oklahoma City in 2018. He met his wife, Angie, soon after moving to Oklahoma, and they were married on Oct. 22, 2020.
Dylan was a devoted Christian who loved his wife deeply. He was an outstanding woodworker who dabbled in metal work and welding, and he loved being outside. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, bird watching and spending time with his family. He was a Wyoming boy at heart! He looked forward to mowing his vast lawn and taking care of his plentiful trees. A Green Bay Packer fan, he married into the Seddelmeyer family, avid Chicago Bears fans. He thrived on the challenges of working in the oil and gas industry and was employed by Sand Ridge Energy at the time of his death.
Dylan is survived by his wife, Angie, and their chocolate lab furchild, Averi. He is also survived by his parents; two brothers, Slade and Parker; father-in-law, Ken; sister-in-law, Jenni; and brother-in-law, Matt, and his wife, Taryn, and their daughter, Maryn. Also grateful for having shared his life are many cousins, aunts, uncles and two grandmothers.
He was preceded in death by his baby sister, Kelly; mother-in-law, Pam; a grandmother; and all of his grandfathers.
As an organ donor, Dylan is saving five people’s lives, and impacting up to 76 other lives through tissue donation.
Celebration of life services were held at Messiah Lutheran Church at 3600 Northwest Expy, Oklahoma City, at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, July 6. A Wyoming service will be held in late July at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in Fort Bridger; details will be announced later.
