William Brandon “Boomer” Peyton

William Brandon “Boomer” Peyton, 30, died Nov. 27, 2013.

A celebration of his life is 11 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Weatherford. A reception will immediately follow so friends and loved ones can gather to share memories and funny stories of a life well-lived.

He was born Jan. 9, 1983, in Decatur, Texas, the eldest of triplet boys. He spent the first 33 months of his life in Cook Children’s Hospital and was one of the first children in Texas to come home on a ventilator. The doctors always said he would not survive to age 6, but he far exceeded all expectations. Boomer lived 30 wonderful years before returning to his heavenly home.

Boomer grew up in Bridgeport and moved to Weatherford with his mom and brother in 1993 to live on the family farm. He graduated from Weatherford High School in 2004 and took classes at Weatherford College in computers, photography and Spanish. Boomer spent many years actively competing in Special Olympics, winning 26 medals during his athletic career. Boomer loved traveling, visiting with friends and family and marveling in the simplest joys of creation. He was an active member of Emmanuel Baptist Church and loved serving with the children’s ministries and singing in the choir.

He is survived by his mother, Debra Peyton; brother, Austin Matthew; and sister-in-law, Windy Dawn Peyton; grandmother, Mary “Nana” Clark; uncle Tim and aunt Terri Thompson and uncle Paul and aunt Tina Pulley; cousins, Ashley and Jeffery Hogan, Clayton and Melissa Rhine, Marissa, Louisa and Rebecca Pulley; “nieces” Baeleigh Hogan and Hynlee Rhine; and his devoted canine companions, Buddy and Charlie.

Boomer was preceded in death by a triplet brother, Johnathan Stephan, when they were 3 months old; and his beloved “Paco,” William Lon Clark, a few months ago.

Boomer’s family would like to thank his hospice nurses, especially Kelley, Destani and Mary, as well as Dr. Julee Morrow, Dr. Nancy Dambro and his many friends from Cook Children’s Hospital.
