Plan Ahead

Ballard Jr., William McCoy "Bill"


William McCoy Ballard Jr, Little William, Bill, passed from this life on Saturday, July 18, 2020 at the age of 44. William was born at St Paul Hospital Dallas, Texas on December 23, 1975 to William and Bonnie Ballard.  He was preceded in death by his father the late William McCoy Ballard Sr. He is survived by his mother, Bonnie Ballard of Grapevine, and sister, Denise Rhoades and brother-in-law, Dan Rhoades. Bill also had two nieces, Ashley and Delanie Rhoades of Fort Worth, and one great nephew, Preston James.  Bill was also a stepfather to David and Donovan Qualls and Maddie and Jaxson Lemire.

Bill attended Grapevine High school class of 1994. He worked as a Collections Director at Deville Asset Management until he took his last breath. He loved to watch sports and loved collecting sports memorabilia and was a diehard Kansas City Chiefs Fan. Bill was a very generous, loving, and caring person not only to his family but also his nearest and dearest friends. He cared so much more about other people’s happiness than his own.

The family will be receiving visitors on Friday July 31, 2020 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for a viewing in the Brooks Family Chapel of the North Dallas Funeral Home, 2710 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, Texas 75234; with a service on Saturday Aug 1, 2020 at 2:00 pm in the chapel.

    Bill was my hero. He changed my life in every way. I loved him like a brother as he was a part of my family. My daughter loved him to pieces. My heart shattered the day he was called home. Condolences to the family and all the people who loved him with their whole heart. He was a one of a kind and there will not be a day that goes by that we dont think about him. May he rest in peace knowing how many people he helped and who loved him

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
