Leslie Willard Brumley died peacefully on Saturday evening, Feb. 16, 2013, at the age of 87.
He was the youngest son, of nine children, born to Lula and Jasper Brumley on Sept. 10, 1925.
At a young age he served two years in the United States Navy. After returning home he married Bonnie Faye Redding on Dec. 21, 1949, in Pickton, Texas. He was a faithful, loving, caring, devoted husband for 63 years and a wonderful proud father to daughter, Pansy Bell; an adoring grandfather to four, Greg Anglin, Don Bell Jr., Kelly Shutt and Lisa Williamson; and great-grandfather to five, Caden Anglin, Sadie Shutt, Sawyer Shutt, Braelynne Williamson and Avery Williamson.
Willard faithfully served as a deacon at the Winterfield Baptist Church in Pickton, Texas, for 55 years where his first love was God, followed by family, friends, farming, fishing and hunting. He was a successful dairyman of 40 years and will always be remembered for his humility, patience, sense of humor and honor. Always spoke encouraging words and was well respected by all who had the opportunity to know him.
Survivors include wife Bonnie; daughter Pansy and husband, Don Bell; four grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Ivy Renshaw and Stella Ramsey.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers Dennis Brumley, John Willis Brumley, J.T. Brumley and Vernice Brumley; and sisters Myrtle Sheer and Maude Mead.
