Obituary for Abron "Monkey" Styons
Abron Wayne "Monkey" Styons, 82, of Plymouth, died unexpectedly on Sunday, August 29, 2021, at his residence.
Born April 2, 1939 in Washington County, he was the son of the late Abram Lee Styons and Eula Irene Cherry Styons. Abron was a heavy equipment mechanic with Weyerhaeuser Paper Company for 33 years and a member of the Plymouth Church of Christ in Plymouth. He was preceded in death by his sisters; Peggy Hayes, Carolyn Aldrich and Veronica Whitfield.
His family includes his wife of 60 years, Judy Holliday Styons of Plymouth; daughters, Lisa Edwards and husband Bill of Washington, Stephanie Williams of Plymouth, and Julie Gurganus and husband Danny of Plymouth; grandchildren, Ryan Williams and wife Kayla, Brandi Craddock and friend Sam Tomlinson, Dana Watkins and husband Cole, Brooke Mann and husband Dustin, Morgan Stegall and husband Kaleb and Jansyn Williams; step-grandchildren, Eric Edwards and wife Melissa, Brook Pooley and husband Brian, and Dustin Edwards and wife Libbie; great-grandchildren, Rhett Watkins, Eleanor Stegall and soon-to-be Ainsley Watkins; step great-grandchildren, Isabella Edwards, Leah Pooley, Carter Edwards, Bryson Pooley, Delaney Pooley, and Jackson Edwards; honorary son and daughter, Greg and Heather Davenport; honorary granddaughter, Jenna Davenport.
Abron, also known as Paw Paw by his grandchildren and great grandchildren, loved his wife dearly and would say that she was the prettiest woman he had ever seen. He always talked about how much he loved his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Not only did he impact his family in so many different ways, he also made meaningful friendships wherever he went. While working at Weyerhaeuser, he would do mechanic work on the side to help provide for his family. He was never idle; he was always finding something to do. His engineering mind often led him to design and create new things like the many bird houses he built. He even dismantled his entire truck engine and put it back together. He loved eating, being outside, hunting, and hanging out at the Buck and Doe Hunting Club with the "boys".
The impact Paw Paw left on his family is significant beyond words. Most importantly, his hugs, kisses, and words "I Love You" will be treasured and dearly missed until we meet again!
The service will be held Friday, September 3, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. at the Plymouth Church of Christ with Pastor Jay Hardison and Pastor Bob Moulden officiating. A drive thru visitation will take place after the service.
Arrangements are by Maitland Funeral Home, Plymouth.
