Craymon A. (Bill) Myers, Sr.

June 19, 1931 — February 17, 2024


Craymon Augusta "Bill" Myers, Sr., passed peacefully at home into the loving arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on February 17, 2024.

Visitation will be held at Sneed-Carnley Funeral Chapel Lampasas on Friday, February 23, 2024, from 5 pm to 7 pm.  Services will be at Community Church on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at 3 pm with interment to follow at Naruna Cemetery.

Craymon was born on June 19, 1931, to Eric Gerald Myers and Vera Jeanette Hupperich Myers, in Terry, Mississippi where he would later meet and marry the love of his life Barbara Jane Tipton Myers.  They were married on January 23, 1953, at Bethesda Baptist Church in Terry, MS where they would go on to build a full life and family together.

Also known as Bill, Brother Bill, and Trouble to some he had a passion for life, and loved God, Family, and His Country.

Craymon joined the United States Army in 1951 and would spend a total of 29 plus years all over the world in many capacities of service before retiring at Fort Hood in March of 1981 at the highest non-commissioned officer rank of Command Sergeant Major.  Through his duties, he served in the Korean War, where he was notably injured in combat, on bases stateside at the Pentagon and Fort Hood, as well as several military bases in Germany and Thailand.

After retiring from his military service and settling with his family in Lampasas, TX, he went to work for Phillips Implements, the local John Deere Dealer, as the parts manager until moving to Mustang Equipment in Marble Falls, TX.  He looked forward to many family visits and cookie deliveries during his time there.  Before fully retiring, he worked for CA Myers Electric.

Bill was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing.  The mid-80s established an annual trip to Pagosa Springs, CO.  He had his designated spot, The Honey Hole, where only he had the patience to sit from daylight til dark.  Even at the age of 92, he made his final trip with his brother, son, grandson, and friends.

Family was so very important to him, and he could be found at football games, track meets, plays, concerts, and livestock shows, supporting kids, grandkids, great-grands, and neighborhood kids alike.  He was a friend of the community and would be met with smiles and greetings whenever entering local restaurants, shops, and of course HEB grocery store.  A select few would even be poked fun at.  For years, as his health and weather permitted, he would travel to Illinois and Mississippi to spend time with family and friends.  He loved his travels down memory lane on the back roads of Terry, MS while visiting his siblings, where no trip was complete without boiled peanuts, watermelon, and fried catfish at Cock of the Walk. 

Craymon is survived by his sister, Ouida M. Ellington and husband Walter; his brothers, Eric G. Myers and wife Renee and Kenneth Dale Myers and wife Shirley; his children, Barbara Sue Scott, Craymon A. Myers, Jr. and wife Roxanne and Glenn E. Myers; his grandchildren, Christina Shuffield and husband Craig, Kyle Rutledge and wife Tonya, Deandra Koger, Taylor Myers, Craymon A. Myers III, Brooke Myers, Julie M. Heintzelman and husband Derek, Nick Myers and wife D'Mietress and Melissa Myers; his great-grandchildren, Lauren Nguyen and husband John, Cole Shuffield, Reed Shuffield, Kylee Rutledge, Kolby Albrecht, Kaleb Albrecht, Saige Koger, Alexa Koger, Morgan Myers, Mason Myers, Aaron Herring, Trevor Dotson, Elijah Dotson, Cassidey Dotson; great-great-grandchildren, Katherine and Claire Nguyen.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife Barbara Jane Tipton Myers; his infant son, Billy Myers; his son, John Myers; his sisters, English Faye Stringer, Dixie Kathleen Tisdale, Mable Clair Sanders, Katie Sue Parker; grandson, Lee Rutledge; son-in-law, David Scott, and all of his wife's brothers and sisters (the Tiptons) that were near and dear to him.

If you remember nothing else, remember his love for each and every one of you!  He would tell you to love one another as God loves us and if you don't know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, ask Him into your heart today because tomorrow is not promised.  Make a difference today!

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to Community Church Building Fund.
