It is with full hearts, we mourn and celebrate the passing of William Berton “Bill” Medart Sunday, October 25, 2020, at the Lubbock Heart and Surgical Hospital.
He was born the eldest of three children, August 3, 1941, to parents, Alice Woodlee Medart and Thomas Chandler Medart, in Lampasas.
He grew up in Lometa, Texas, and graduated high school with the honor of salutatorian in 1959.
He attended Southwestern University in Georgetown and 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, where he was a much-loved member of Austin Street Church of Christ.
Surviving him are his wife of 55 years, Lois, of Levelland; his children, Bryan (Rhetta) of Levelland and DeAnna of Austin; seven grandchildren; one great-grandchild; his brother, T.J. Medart (Sandra) of Mullin; sister, Glenda Soto of Bertram; sister-in-law, Nelda Franks (Mark) of Brownwood; brother-in-law, Mike Elkins (Chrissy) of Decatur; numerous nieces and nephews; and all the friends he made anywhere he went.
Preceding him in death are his mother and father, Alice Medart Hamilton and T.C. Medart; his parents-in-law, Vera and Russell Elkins; and one grandchild, Tanner.
Graveside services will be held Saturday, November 7, at 1 p.m. at the Long Cove Cemetery in Lometa, with Rick Smitherman officiating.
COVID-19 precautions will be observed by wearing masks while we are gathered.
A memorial service at Austin Street Church of Christ will be held at a later date.
