Kenneth "Lance" DeVore

Kenneth “Lance” DeVore was born April 24, 1973 in Okmulgee, Oklahoma to Floyd Kenneth DeVore, Jr, and Catherine Sue (Gaither) January. He died Wednesday, August 26, 2020. He was raised and educated in Owasso, Oklahoma and graduated with the Owasso High School Class of 1992. Lance went on to attend courses and play baseball for Hillsdale Freewill Baptist College in Moore, Oklahoma. He was married October 21, 1995 to Laura (Hansen) Devore. Lance spent most of his working life as an Airplane Mechanic with various Airline companies in Tulsa. He was a member of Owasso First Assembly of God Church. In his spare time between raising five kids, Lance enjoyed a variety of past times such as coaching and umpiring baseball, fishing (if he could stay in the boat), but most of all he loved his family. As his mentor Coach Holloman put it best, “No one loved Owasso baseball more than Lance DeVore.” Lance’s Christmas spirit rivaled Santa Clause, from singing random Christmas carols all year long to dressing in his famous holiday attire.
