Juston Dale Agee


Juston Dale Agee, 73, died November 28, 2015 at Western Plains Medical Complex, Dodge City. He was born on October 2, 1942 at Rush Springs, Oklahoma, the son of Judston Barry and Ella Florence (Lovett) Agee. 

He graduated from Wichita North High School, Wichita, Kansas and the Law Enforcement Academy, Hutchinson, Kansas. He worked in aircraft sheet metal assembly for many years in Wichita. He moved to Dodge City in 1975 to reopen the Shangrila Restaurant. He had worked in carpentry, and meat butchering, and retired in 1997 from law enforcement for the City of Dodge City after twenty three years of service. He dearly loved his Bible and Bible history, often conversing it with others. Woodworking, gourmet cooking, gardening and reading had a special place in his life. His passion was hosting missionaries as they traveled through Dodge City and giving them a home away from home for a night or two of rest and renewal and delicious meals. It was always such a blessing to him to hear first hand what God is doing all over the world. 

On November 11, 1962, he married his wife and high school sweetheart, Lois Swaim, at Bethany Baptist Church, Wichita, Kansas 

He was a member of the Bible Baptist Church, Dodge City and the Kansas Peace Officers Association. He was a former deacon with the First Southern Baptist Church in Dodge City.
