William Leland "Bill"
With a character, personality, and heart as big as his beloved Texas, William Leland (Bill) Weddle entered the arms of his Lord and Savior April 19, 2016 at the age of 78.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 58 years Starrlene Glenda (Star) Weddle and brother Michael Weddle.
Bill is survived by his daughter Treva and her husband Thomas Wimbrow, granddaughter Melissa Amos and her husband Mickey Amos, great-granddaughter Cheyenne Amos, numerous extended family, and a multitude of friends.
Born in Monahans, Texas to Arthur Leland Weddle and Lucille Andrews Weddle, Bill was a graduate of Grandfalls High School and the University of Texas at El Paso. He lived throughout Texas and worked for many years in the trucking and oil industries before he and Star settled in Bastrop where he was elected and proudly served as Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace.
A Lifetime Member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Bill had a lifelong love of animals, especially Doberman Pinchers Dobie, We-gi, Tsa-li (Charlie), and Olympia along with many other dog, cat, and horse fur babies. Bill and Star for many years enjoyed showing their "kids" at Dog Shows and exhibiting Star's art work at the Sante Fe Indian Market and other prestigious Native American Art Shows.
Bill was proud of his Confirmation as member of Ascension Catholic Church during Easter of 2015 and he and his family are grateful for the love, support, and prayers of his friends and the Ascension congregation.

It was an absolute pleasure to get to know Bill during his RCIA formation at Ascension Catholic Church. My heart was full of joy when he was baptized last Easter. He came by my office every once in awhile and we had great conversations about his journey to Christ. I will miss his sweet humble heart. He doesn't know this but as a fair and just judge he saved my family. You could tell he served with fairness and compassion-he was a righteous man. I know this dear sweet man is in heaven right now enjoying the peace and comfort of Our Lord. I pray the family will find comfort during this time of loss and remember the wonderful memories.

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we will begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. It will be the little things that you will remember ,the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter the breakfast meeting at Maxine's and Starbucks, Your conversation and love for all and although it may seem hard right now It will be these memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again. Rest in peace we will miss you >>>

Bill is right now making our Lord laugh as Bill walks with Him. Just last Saturday he got me and the entire nursing staff in stitches. I brought him a fish dinner and one nurse told him NO because of his blood sugar testing. . Bill then said "Nurse Sugar, "Fish is sugarless and one other thing-A little sugar and a smile go a long way , nurse". She laughed and said "you win, Bill".

Bill we will be pressing the beads and praying for you and family!

God is good all the time and all the time God is good'

My condolences to the family and friends of our former Justice of the Peace Bill Weddle. I had the honor of knowing him through his work with Bastrop County, the Bastrop Democratic Party and later at Ascension Catholic Church. He will be missed by many in the community. May he rest in peace as he joins his beloved wife.
