Obituary for William Mills Leggett


William Mills (Bill) Leggett of Dallas passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, after complications from Alzheimer’s. He died shortly after his 78th birthday.

Bill was a highly respected architectural designer of many commercial buildings in the Dallas area and elsewhere. At one time, the architectural firm in which he was a partner ranked among the top ten in the nation.

Beyond his professional creativity, Bill brought life and vision to everything he touched, such as the restoration of dozens of vintage cars, boats, and planes, and countless personal creative projects that he pursued with his wife and each of his children.

He was a lover of music and played drums with a local band made of his lifelong friends.

He was a loving, kind-hearted husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, who was eager to add his unique perspective and helpful attitude to any endeavor.

Bill was born on December 18, 1943, in Lexington, KY, the son of Harold Elsworth Leggett and Rilla Leggett, who both preceded him in death.

He will be loved and celebrated by his wife of 33 years, Barbara Dee Leggett, and his children: Mark Leggett (Noah, Nick), Wil Leggett, Cameron Leggett, Amanda Davidson (Edie, Lyle, Ames), Holli Elrod (Brooks), Robin Mewborne (Anna) ; a sister, Doris Booth, seven grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, will be announced later. Condolences can be left on the North Dallas Funeral Home website. In lieu of flowers, donations are gratefully appreciated to the SPCA, The Alzheimer’s Association, or The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD).

"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
