Charles Edward Guseman

December 12, 1958 — May 16, 2022

Charles "Ed" Edward Guseman passed away surrounded by family and love Monday May 16, 2022. He lived life his way, born December 12, 1958 in Athens, Ohio to Earl Guseman and Helen (Loper) Guseman. He was the second youngest of 5 kids and was quite the handful once he reached his teen years. He started working the oilfield when he was in his teens, not knowing it would be his career of 18 years with Devon Energy. He had dropped out of school, being clever with his hands and having a mind for mechanics. When he was working with Baker out of Middletown, Ohio, he was part of a team that developed a machine to roll cement blankets. He met his first wife, Deanna Christensen, who bore him 2 sons. As life happens, they parted ways then he met his second wife, Martha "Marty" Frye, in Douglas, Wyoming and became life partners. He was tenacious in courting her, but she was the one who proposed to him.

Ed had a very distinct look, a blend of Rod Stewart, Willie Nelson, and Kid Rock with his sweet dance moves and long hair. He left a mark with everyone who met him, quick to make friends and generate laughter. Parting ways with new friends, and old, he would quip "I'm glad you got to see me", making them stop, think, and laugh.

In life he was supported by his wife, Martha "Marty" (Frye) Gueseman, brothers Earl "Butch" Guseman and John Guseman, his children Nicholas Guseman, Adam Guseman, Uriah Bankes, and Spring Stinton as well as his grandchildren Riley Guseman, Cole Guseman, Eathan Guseman, Jayson McLaughlin, Ellie Guseman, and Dallin Guseman, as well as a variety of nieces and nephews from all over the country as his family was of the well-blended variety.

He will have a wonderful family reunion with his passing, being greeted by his parents Earl and Helen (Loper) Guseman, brother Jim Guseman, sister Diane (Guseman) Sober, son Devlin Bankes, granddaughter Alexis Stinton, and a multitude of cousins, aunts and uncles.

A celebration of life for Ed will be pending, the family asks to keep him in their hearts and memories. If people feel so moved to share stories or photos of Ed, they can email them to and they will be shared.
