Billy Wayne Hester Jr.

July 23, 1956 — March 30, 2024


Bill passed away peacefully, on March 30, 2024, at home surrounded by his family. He was born on July 23, 1956, in Big Lake, Texas to Billy Wayne Hester, Sr. and Lucille Horton Hester. On Christmas Eve of 1990 he married the love of his life, Martha, and together they had a wonderful life. He hired out to the Union Pacific Railroad in June of 1977, and had a career that spanned 28 years. During that time, he was privileged to make many lifelong friends who became family. He loved collecting pocketknives, listening to good music., and classic cars, but by far his greatest joy in life was being "Hillbilly" to his grandchildren.
