July 11, 2018
Waylon Lewis Doney, age 39, of Hays, Montana went home to be with the Lord at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, Washington at 4:20 am on Friday June 29th, 2018. Waylon was born September 27th, 1978 to Cheryl (Dean) Werk and the late Jess Cochran.
He attended Hays/Lodge Pole Schools, graduating from Hays/Lodge Pole High School in 1997 at the top of his class. Waylon worked as a janitor for Rasmussen Janitorial following graduation, he also worked as a Montana Indian Firefighter and as a detention officer at the Fort Belknap Detention Center.
For the last 11 years Waylon worked as a butcher with Bear Paw Meats in Chinook, Montana. A job he truly enjoyed. During the winter of 1996 Waylon met the love of his life, "My Brandi". This union was blessed with four children – Tevin Austin, Kaylin Maye, Whitney Jade and Waylon Carter.
He was a fun loving father, a best friend to his children. As a father he tried his best to guide his children, always telling them like it was, giving it to them straight. But he knew they would need to figure it out on their own and he still encouraged them to live their life regardless of where that road could lead, and if they failed he would always be waiting at home and would always love them.
Waylon taught his kids to always be good to people and to always take the time to visit. Words cannot express the kind and loving man he was, Waylon was a people person who loved everyone he knew and met. He had a wonderful sense of humor that brought out the best in people, a good natured character who was brutally honesty. He loved to joke and laugh, and will be greatly missed by many.
Waylon was a hard worker always willing to help anyone however possible whenever he could. Although his health hindered him at times he never let it slow him down, he was always willing to saddle up for any ride.
We were truly blessed to call him our husband and dad. He was happiest on his horses with his dog Lady riding in the mountains. Waylon is survived by the love of his life, Brandi; daughters, Kaylin and Whitney; sons, Tevin and Carter; parents, Cheryl and Dean Werk; grandma, Pana who he was very close too; sisters, Deana (Bryon), Paige, and Twai (Andrew), Shaunell, and Cecile; stepbrothers; Troy, Casey, Austin, Ace, and Tyrese. Numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and life long friends.
