Lyndon (Bill) Aycock, age 77, of Riesel, passed away June 14, 2019 surrounded by his family. A Celebration of Life will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 20th at Pecan Grove Funeral Home, 3124 Robinson Dr., Waco. The family will receive visitors from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 19th, at the funeral home.
Lyndon was born May 26, 1942 in Kirk, Texas to parents, Marvin & Gladys (Potts) Aycock and was a life-long resident of Riesel, Texas. He owned and operated Aycock’s Oakwood Grocery in Waco for over 40 years. Always chewing on a cigar, he was quite the comedian, always making his customers feel welcome and he never knew a stranger.
Lyndon loved his family unconditionally, family get-togethers, piddling in his workshop and mowing his grass. Over the years, he also enjoyed watching his kids, grandkids and great-grandkids sporting events. Being a lover of music, family & friends alike who would visit his house would be invited to listen to his vast music collection.
Lyndon was preceded in death by his parents.
He is survived by his children, Maurene Padilla and husband Rick, Patricia Aycock, Brian Aycock and wife Chrissy, all of Riesel; brother, Thomas Aycock of Riesel; and sister, Charlotte Angeletti of Waco; grandchildren, Adam Padilla, Kyndra Buck and husband Terry, Reece Aycock, Alexis Shaw, Trent Stiles & Alexandra Aycock; and great-grandchildren, Ashlyn Nutt, Tatum Buck, AJ Padilla & Ryker Barnette.
The family wants to say a special thank you to Providence Hospice.
