Billy George Myers of Willis died peacefully at home on December 24 so that he could spend Christmas with his wife Adelaide, who he missed very much.

Billy was born 86 years ago in Sherman, Texas but grew up in Houston and graduated from Jefferson Davis High School. He served in the Navy during World War II and the Korean War. In 1947 he married Adelaide, his high school sweetheart, who passed away in 2011.

Bill and Adelaide were active members of First Baptist Church of Willis, which they joined in 1991, and prior to that, Long Point Baptist Church in Spring Branch.

At the age of 55 he retired from Washington National Insurance Company and later worked part-time for the IRS, where he was employee of the year three years in a row.

Bill was an active fisherman and caught many a "spec" and flounder at the Quarantine Station in Galveston and his share of catfish from Lake Conroe. He enjoyed participating in the fish-frys, turkey frying, and other activities in his Willis neighborhood, as well as lending a hand and expertise to help his neighbors. But most of all he loved to talk, and if you heard one of his stories once, you heard it many times.

Bill is survived by his son Stephan Myers and his wife Susan of Auburn, Maine; daughter Janice Femal and her husband Daniel of Mandeville, Louisiana; daughter Rita Webb and her husband Clarke of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho; eight grandchildren, Lucas Myers, Rachel Healy and John Myers of Portland, Maine; Matthew Femal of Tampa, Florida and Marcus Femal of Herndon, Virginia; and Benjamin Webb, Nathaniel Webb and Joshua Webb of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho; four great grandchildren, Iris and Everett Myers and Turner and Felix Femal; one sister, Beverly Elliot of San Marcos; and many nieces and nephews.
