Our sympathy.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. My sincere condolences on your loss. William was a classmate of mine in the first grade. I think he was a relative of my uncle Spencer Medart. Prayers for you and your family.

Lois, Please accept my sincerest sympathies for the loss of your husband. I wish I could offer you comfort in person. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love to all of you.

Love you Uncle Bill

I’m so sorry for the Earthly loss of Bill, but rejoice in knowing you will see him again! Prayers and love for you all.

It is with full hearts, we mourn and celebrate the passing of William Berton "Bill" Medart.  Bill passed on Sunday, October 25, 2020, in Lubbock, Texas.

He was born the eldest of three children, August 3, 1941, to parents, Alice Woodlee Medart and Thomas Chandler Medart in Lampasas, Texas.  He grew up in Lometa, Texas, and graduated high school as salutatorian of his class in 1959.  He attended Southwestern University in Georgetown and the University of Texas at Arlington and was a United States Navy Veteran.

Bill married Lois Elkins in 1965, and to this union, two children, DeAnna and Bryan were born.  He enjoyed a successful career in communications and retired as Texas State Regional Technical Manager with AT&T.  A long time resident of Liberty Hill and the Georgetown area of Central Texas, he also made homes in the DeLeon/Gorman area and most recently, in Levelland, Texas, where he was a much-loved member of Austin Street Church of Christ.  Bill was preceded in death by his parents, Alice Medart Hamilton and T.C.
