After graduating from Wills High School in Smyrna, Georgia, he earned a degree in Business Administration from the University of Georgia in 1975.

He ended his career with AIG as a managing director of private placements.

A life-long sports fan, Bill participated in football, basketball, baseball, track, tennis, and bowling. Recreationally, he also enjoyed golf, scuba diving, cycling, skiing, street hockey, and ping pong.

Bill was also an avid traveler. In addition to time spent touring the U.S., he visited Singapore, Malaysia, France, Mongolia, China, Mexico, Canada, and Italy.

On Sept. 22, 1984, he married Marsha Dove. He is survived by her and their two sons, Chase (wife Julia) and Drew. Other survivors include sisters Debra Hasson and Arlene Martin.

Special thanks are extended to family and friends who supported Bill and traveled with him on this journey. A video tribute honoring Bill is online at North Dallas Funeral Home.

    One day Bill and I were golfing and he was a little forgetful some days. Like not having a ball or a tee and I would tell him what to do. We finally got him straighten out and I said one thing to many. Bill said would you shut up so I could hit the ball. You all have my deepest condolences.

    Marsha,
    What a long and difficult journey this has been for you and your family. You have handled this situation with such grace, patience, and love. Bill could not have asked for a better wife and partner and the boys are so lucky to have you as their strength and rock. Their is sunshine ahead but in the meantime lean on family, friends and faith. Bill is in a beautiful place and he made wonderful memories for you and the boys to cherish. Love and prayers always. Liz and Dwain Thiele

    Our delay in posting a ‘condolence’ is because it takes time to put into words what a special co-worker and friend Bill was. He was the epitome of the salesman – he could sell an ice machine to an entire Eskimo village and they’d come back wanting to buy more. Despite the abundance of b.s., his spark, his energy, his passion and his love of his family rooted him solidly. Alzheimers is an insidious disease and it is beyond cruel that it claimed Bill as one of ‘theirs’. He is sorely missed.

    I can only imagine how difficult it is watching someone you love go through this. I have many fond memories of the times Bill and I worked together and owe him a lot in furthering my career life. He was a special person with his quick wit and easy going personality! Our condolences to Marsha and family.

    Marsha, I am so sorry for you’re loss and for you’re sons. I was with Bill as a caregiver at Arden Courts since last October. Great slide show. I enjoyed seeing that. He was a great guy and the people at the facility liked him as well.

    Bill was a wonderful friend with a beautiful sense of humor. His love for Marsha and the boys was so evident to all. I played tennis with Bill when we were at Georgia and still in Dallas, he was always better but humble. He was a man of faith with a gentle spirit. He will be missed by all. So sorry for your loss. Love John

"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."

"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
