Dr. William W. Mayers of Laurel, 88, passed away July 29, 2019, surrounded by family at South Central Regional Medical Center.
Bill was born in Brandon, Mississippi to the late Daniel and Charlotte Mayers. He attended Brandon High School before continuing his education at Mississippi State University. He then went on to receive a medical degree from the University of Tennessee which he used to practice Urology for years in Tennessee and Mississippi before retiring in 1992.
He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, golfing, sports, reading, and staying up-to-date on all the new medical advancements. However, nothing beat a good story and a little country/bluegrass music. He was loved and will be missed.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Daniel and Charlotte Mayers, and his brother Daniel Mayers, Jr.
He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Margie G. Mayers; his three children, Wes (Katherine) Mayers of Nashville, TN, Mark Mayers of Santa Rosa Beach, FL, and Julie (Randy) Graham of Laurel as well as two stepchildren Trudy (Tait) Selden of Tunica and Crosby (Sandee) Taylor of Fairhope, AL; his sister, Charlotte (Charles) Faries of Portland, OR; his sister-in-law, Hilda Mayers of Brandon; his grandchildren, Mark H. Mayers of Santa Rosa Beach, FL, Susan Graham of Hattiesburg, Abbey Graham of Laurel, step grandchildren, Masey Gresham of Holly Springs, MS, Mary Tait (Will) Seely of Jackson, TN, J. Crosby Taylor of Atlanta, GA, and Knox and Wills Taylor of Fairhope, AL; and numerous great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
