James William (Bill) Marcom

April 4, 1924 –
 February 4, 2023


James William (Bill) Marcom was born on April 4, 1924 in Farmers Branch, Texas. He graduated from Carrollton High School in 1941.

He attended the University of North Texas for several months, but decided to join the Navy in December 1941, after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Due to several physical and administrative issues, he was not called to active duty until September 1943. During this interval, Bill continued his education at North Texas. Once he reported to active duty, Bill was sent to numerous military schools to learn about aviation and electronics. Eventually, his talents were recognized and he was offered the opportunity to attend the midshipman school to become an officer. After his commission as an Ensign in the US Navy, he was sent to more schools to continue learning aviation and electronics. After this training, he was given several assignments dealing with military aircraft. During this time, he contacted his girlfriend, Marie Weaver, and they were married near Atlantic City, NJ on July 25, 1952. Soon thereafter, Bill was sent to attend the Officer Electronics School in Memphis. His duty stations during his navy career included stops in New Jersey, New York, Iowa, Illinois, Hawaii, Japan, and the Mediterranean Sea.

In 1958, the Navy decided to reduce its officer ranks and Bill was given the opportunity to “transfer his service” and become a captain in the US Army. During his army time, Bill held various staff and command assignments in Arizona, Germany, and New Mexico. He decided to retire from the army in December 1967.

After separating from the military after 26 years of service, Bill returned to Farmers Branch, Texas and took a job at General Dynamics in Fort Worth. After 5 years, Bill retired and started a mowing business with his sons. Eventually the business was turned over to his sons and Bill decided to stop working and enjoy life.

Bill was preceded in death by his wife, Amanda Marie Marcom; his mother, Rebecca Tims; his father, Balam Marcom; his sons, Marc and Perry Marcom; and, his brothers, Jess, Bud, BC, Roy Lee, and Jay Frank.

Bill is survived by two daughters, Mary Jane Schob (Tom) and Margie Hughes (Wallace); daughter-in-law, Andrea Marcom; grand-children, Amanda Hughes and William Hughes; grand-children (by marriage), Laura Spradley (Daniel), Erin Schob, Bradley Schob (Courtney), and Steven Schob (Katie); great-grand-children (by
marriage), Hannah Schob, Claire Spradley, Corinne Schob, Oliver Schob, Andrew Spradley, Joanna Spradley, Jack Escobar, Penny Schob, and Luke Schob.

A visitation will be held on Sunday, February 12, at 2-4:00pm at the North Dallas Funeral Home and a funeral service will be on Monday, February 13, at 11:00am at the same location.

"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
