William K. Hymers ONEONTA - William "Billy" K. Hymers passed away in his winter home in Margate, Florida on Nov. 24, 2018, with his loving family by his side. He had fought a courageous battle with cancer.
William was born Feb. 20, 1950, in Delhi, the son of the late Douglas and Tarisa Hymers.
Bill attended Oneonta City Schools, graduating high school in 1969. He attended SUNY Delhi.
He was a very supportive husband, father, brother, grandfather and friend to many. He was a man of God, trusting Lord Jesus Christ. Bill was a very active participant in the Main Street Baptist Church, Oneonta.
Bill was a fierce competitor with a servant's heart. He will best be remembered for being kind and loving, always willing to give a helping hand and his devotion to his grandchildren and all his family.
Bill was raised in the family business where he developed a love of cars. He liked outdoor activities such as tennis, pickleball, bicycling, sailing and camping. He also liked to line dance and travel. He was known by friends as the "Rummicube Champion!"
Bill was a tractor trailer driver for more than 40 years. The majority of that time he delivered feed for Blue Seal Feeds in and out of many farms in rural upstate New York.
He is survived by his wife of 24 years, Inez; daughter, Tarisa (Dan) Finne; grandchildren, Ethan and Torryn; sisters, Roberta "Bobbie" and Peggy (Ed) Hall; brother, Wayne (Peg) Hymers; aunt, Betty; and several loved nieces, nephews, cousins and stepfamily.
The family requests that any memorial donations be made in honor of Bill to Catskill Area Hospice, 297 River Street Service Road, Oneonta, NY 13820.
Funeral services will be held on April 27, 2019, at the Main Street Baptist. Further information will be posted in the Daily Star and the Hometown papers in April.
