1938 - 2021

Liberty Hill, Texas


William "Rayburn" Ashabranner of Liberty Hill, Texas passed away Thursday, February 18, 2021.

Rayburn was born October 28, 1938 to Rayburn T. and Wilma Ashabranner in Burnet, Texas. He was preceded in death by his parents. Rayburn was a member of the Army Reserves for eight years.  He worked for the Texas Department of Transportation for 43 years and loved his job.  Rayburn always said he could "outrun the rain to finish a seal coat." His love of guns led him to be a founding member of the Burnet Gun Club. He was an avid photographer and loved taking pictures of wildlife. He was a member of St. Martin's Lutheran Church and participated with the Mop and Hammer gang and the Saintly Seniors.

He is survived by his wife, Patsy Ashabranner, his son Greg Ashabranner and wife Karla, daughter Terri Lehner and husband Mike, stepsons Chris Castellow and wife Beth, and Brian Ashabranner and wife Emily. He is survived by nine grandchildren and one great grandchild. 

The family would like to send a special thank you to Texas Home Health employees, Beverly and Fran for all their help in taking care of Rayburn. Due to COVID 19 a memorial service will be held at a later date.

 In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in his name to St. Martin's Lutheran Church, 606 West 15th Street, Austin, Texas 78701.
