Cecil Wayne Ayers

August 31, 1935 — August 22, 2023

Cecil Wayne Ayers, age 87, of Warrenton, Missouri passed away on Tuesday, August 22, 2023 in Warrenton, Missouri. He was born in Union City, Tennessee on August 31, 1935 to Arthur and Annie Ayers (nee Taylor).

A dedicated Jehovah's Witness, and devoted family man; Cecil was born in Union City, TN but spent much of his life between Mississippi and the St. Louis area. Cecil was humble, self-sacrificing, hardworking, and straighforward.

In addition to his love for family and friends, Cecil had a passion for traveling with Shirley, listening/playing music, learning new things, working on projects, and to him nothing beat a home-cooked meal. He leaves us all with many fond and cherished memories.
