Plan Ahead

O’Neal, Roger Keith


Roger Keith O’Neal died at the age of 80 on October 17, 2021.

Services will be held at North Dallas Funeral Home on November 3rd, at 11:30am, with burial to follow at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery at 1:30pm. 

Roger was born February 7, 1941, in Fort Worth, Texas. He is preceded in death by his mother Violet O’Neal, his father Jesse Clarence, and his daughter Michelle Weeks. 

Roger will be best remembered for serving his country in the United States Army for almost 40 years as a drill sergeant. He was also a published author of the book titled “The Life and Times of Jace Tanner.”

Everyone who knew Roger will remember him for the stories of his life while in the military, playing pranks, and telling jokes. It brought him great joy to spend time with his grandchildren and he loved the Lord with all his heart. 

Roger is survived by his wife, Frances O’Neal; Children, Lisa Vargas, Bobby and Deanna Price, Joe and Lisa Fleischer, David and Karen Eckols, Kristi Gray, Phillip Foreman, and Kimberly Foreman. He is survived by his six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. 

Remembrances may be sent to North Dallas Funeral Home.

"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
