Waymond attended Cisco schools and transferred to Eastland High School where he graduated in 1954. Waymond entered the United States Army in March of 1957 and served in the Army Reserve before being honorably discharged in April of 1963. He married Jo Ann Hollis on February 14, 1959 in Eastland, Texas. He attended Cisco College for two years, at which time, he and Jo Ann opened Greenwood Auto Parts in Ranger in 1968.
