    Mr. Ayers was a fine man but he had more grandchildren from his previous wife Mary Jane Ayers, Randy, Wendall Woodard (Earline’s sons) and their wives and a great grandson Jason Woodard (son of Randy) & wife. He would have wanted them mentioned in the obituary he was a good friend for years, I’m sure it was just an oversight or your space was limited, I thought they should be included so adding them here works just fine.

      No grandchildren were mentioned. Just too many to name along with spouses. This just happens sometimes when a family is very large.

    Mr. Ayers was our neighbor. We only knew him for a few months. He was a good neighbor and a loving husband. I know he will be missed by his family.
