W.E. "Ed" Spoonts

W.E. “Ed” Spoonts

d. July 12, 2018

Ed Spoonts passed away in his home outside of Burneton July 12, 2018. He was born in Arkansas. During his 92 years, he fought in World War II, was a surveyor who traveled the country mapping America’s highways and byways, and was a pioneer in the field of photogrammetry. But he was best known and adored for spending 70 years passionately in love with his wonderful wife, Vii (“Lily Wren”), as well as for always being delighted by a great joke, a clever tale, rowdy song, or hearty night of partying with his dear friends.

Sadly in recent years, Ed lost his beloved wife, both their children, Bill (Spike) Spoonts and Sherry Spoonts, as well as his and his wife’s brothers and sisters. He is survived by his “honorary” daughter who has been an unofficial family member for decades, and his adored caregivers — all of whom were the angels who helped him leave this life loved, well-cared for, and peaceful.

Albert Jr. Medrano

March 11, 1952 — June 21, 2018

Albert Jr. Medrano was born in Belton on March 11, 1952. He departed the earth on the evening of June 21, 2018.

He was a man's man, a hard worker, a lover of life, a prankster and a best friend to many. His crooked smile will be forever missed.

Junior was a friend to many, he loved his family; but he cared for all his friends too. He felt alive when they were all surrounding him. He was very tender hearted and loved to joke around with everyone.

He was great to talk to and had many stories to tell, and he usually had an ear in the middle of things and always had a way of making you smile. He loved his car/boat/truck racing. Junior had his daily morning routine with the same ol’cats chatting over coffee or chatting it up with his brothers. He was always down to meet up at local bar and watch people.
