Blue, William Hartnell


William Hartnell Blue, known to his friends and family as Bill or Billy died suddenly on September 8, 2021, in his home in Addison Texas.

Bill lived a full and lively 64 years. He was born in Pontiac, Michigan on June 4, 1957, to Marjory Hartnell Blue and Richard Whiting Blue. The family moved to Dallas when he was three and Bill grew up on Willow Grove Road in North Dallas.  He attended St Monica Elementary, Jesuit College Prep and graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in Engineering.   For many years he was a devoted and avid Aggie alumnus and sports fan attending football games regularly.  He attended St Catherine of Siena Church in Carrollton.  Bill was a long-time employee at Capform Inc. where he served as a licensed structural engineer.  He was very proud of the projects he was involved in, many of which helped shape the skylines of Dallas, Miami and elsewhere.  Besides being an avid sports fan, Bill was a passionate cook and a devoted farmer to his many cows on his farm in East Texas!

Bill is dearly missed by his sister Mary Elizabeth Blue and brother-in-law Mark Soloski of Baltimore, MD and Minerva, NY, nephew Jacob Soloski of Washington, DC, Jenise and Ithiel Catiri of Amana, Iowa, Mary Anne and Ron Spears of Lone Oak, Texas, Tom and Laura Blong of Abilene, Texas and many other cousins, friends and colleagues.

A memorial Mass will be held at St. Jude Catholic Church in Allen, Texas on October 16 at 10:30 am.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory, can be made to No Kid Hungry or other charities of your choice.

"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
