James Hyland

June 4, 1939 –
 May 22, 2023


James (Jim) Hyland was born on June 4, 1939, in Eagle, WI, to John and Louise Hyland, and he shared his life with us until his passing on May 22, 2023. From a young age, Jim found joy and solace in music; serving as an altar boy at St. Theresa Catholic Church, playing the church organ, and singing in the choir. This early passion for music carried him throughout his life, as he later became a cherished member of the Greendale Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. In addition to music, Jim’s love for gardening, inherited from his mother, was evident in the beautiful and precise landscaping he created at every home he and his family shared. Jim’s journey through life was marked by love, laughter, and a deep-rooted sense of family. On January 13, 1968, he married Roberta (Robbie) Doroszuk, and they raised three wonderful daughters together. Jim’s love for the outdoors extended to barbecuing and spending time on the patio, enjoying a cold beverage with family and friends. In his later years, Jim found love again with Donna Miller. Their shared love of music and faith in the Lord created a bond that was both strong and tender, as they enjoyed quiet moments together on their porch swing, watching the sun set, and greeting neighbors with a warm smile. Together, Jim and Donna formed a loving family with stepdaughters Melora Hartman, Maren Ruediger, and Melanie Cottier. Jim’s gentle nature and kind heart will continue to live on through his beloved wife, Donna Hyland, his daughters and sons-in-law Kristin and Mickey Tharp, Lisa Hyland, and Amy and Joe Bragg, as well as his five grandchildren, Michael Tharp, Nicholas Tharp, Samantha Bragg, Kaitlyn Bragg, and Hannah Arriaga. He was preceded in death by his parents, John Hyland and Louise Breidenbach. Jim’s compassionate spirit will be remembered by all who had the pleasure of knowing him, and his legacy will live on through the cherished memories of his family and friends. We invite you to leave your memories of James Hyland and upload any photos you may have to share on the memorial page. Let’s celebrate a life well-lived and the lasting impact he has had on those who knew and loved him.

A Celebration of Life Serice is scheduled for Wednesday, June 14th, 2023 at 2:00pm at the First Presbyterian Church of Dallas.

"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. Thank 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
