Waymon was one of 12 children. He learned early the meaning of hard work, integrity, love for God and family. He left Iola upon graduating from high school on May 29, 1953 and accepted a machinist position at Hughes Tools Company in Houston. Waymon met Twila at Harbor Baptist Church where they were married on June 25, 1955. Waymon would be drafted into the Army at the end of 1954. Waymon was stationed in Ft. Benning, Georgia. While in the Army he received training on repairing office equipment. Twila eventually followed Waymon to Ft. Benning where they met many lifelong friends. Waymon received an Honorable Discharge from the Army on December 13, 1956. After Waymon was discharged from the Army, he and Twila moved back to Houston. On May 21, 1957, Waymon & Twila welcomed their first child, son Waymon Scott Worsham. The next day Scott passed away from collapsed lungs. On June 23, 1958, they welcomed a daughter Twila Waynette. Almost 4 years later they welcomed their last child a son, Charles LaWayne on April 27, 1962. Waymon accepted a job with Remington Rand Office Machines in San Antonio, Texas in 1965 where he repaired typewriters and office equipment.

In July 1974, Waymon accepted a position with Century Business Equipment which brought them back to Houston. They would move back to their old neighborhood of Songwood in northeast Houston. Waymon, Twila, Waynette and Chuck joined South Main Baptist Church in the summer of 1976.
