December 1, 1925 – May 24, 2019
Bill is at peace with God, the pain is gone. He left us May 24th, 2019, after a brief confinement in NE Baptist Hospital in San Antonio, Texas. He was 93 years young!
Bill was born December 1, 1925 in San Antonio, Texas. He attended schools there until graduation and entered the United States Navy serving in the Naval Air Force during World War ll. Bill was very dedicated to America and family. After an Honorable Discharge from the Navy he pursued a career in electronics taking him into the era of television! He spent his years until he retired in managerial positions for appliance and TV sales and service.
It was in retail sales he met his wife of 55 years, Verna Lou Lausen. In 1970 the pair left San Antonio with two sons and moved to Del Rio, his wife's home. Bill loved West Texas and never wanted to move again.
Bill had many miracles in his life, but his survival of prostate cancer and colon cancer is 2002 was continuance of 17 more years of life for him.
In retirement Bill was a self-taught knife maker. Although it was a hobby to keep him active knife making became a way of life. He was challenged by the techniques and practices of fellow blades men and studied every thing he could find to develop his own trademark in the business. His knives have gone all over the world and he was always humbled by the results of his hard work. He donated many knives to charity, his favorite options for the knives. Many were sold bringing substantial funding for worthy causes!

May God bless the soul of Bill Nyman, may he rest in peace with God infinitely, may he shine in glory unto God now and forevermore in the holy name of Jesus we pray. Amen
