Ballard Jr., William McCoy "Bill"


William McCoy Ballard Jr, Little William, Bill, passed from this life on Saturday, July 18, 2020 at the age of 44. William was born at St Paul Hospital Dallas, Texas on December 23, 1975 to William and Bonnie Ballard.  He was preceded in death by his father the late William McCoy Ballard Sr. He is survived by his mother, Bonnie Ballard of Grapevine, and sister, Denise Rhoades and brother-in-law, Dan Rhoades. Bill also had two nieces, Ashley and Delanie Rhoades of Fort Worth, and one great nephew, Preston James.  Bill was also a stepfather to David and Donovan Qualls and Maddie and Jaxson Lemire.

Bill attended Grapevine High school class of 1994. He worked as a Collections Director at Deville Asset Management until he took his last breath. He loved to watch sports and loved collecting sports memorabilia and was a diehard Kansas City Chiefs Fan. Bill was a very generous, loving, and caring person not only to his family but also his nearest and dearest friends. He cared so much more about other people’s happiness than his own.

The family will be receiving visitors on Friday July 31, 2020 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for a viewing in the Brooks Family Chapel of the North Dallas Funeral Home, 2710 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, Texas 75234; with a service on Saturday Aug 1, 2020 at 2:00 pm in the chapel.

Bill was my hero. He changed my life in every way. I loved him like a brother as he was a part of my family. My daughter loved him to pieces. My heart shattered the day he was called home. Condolences to the family and all the people who loved him with their whole heart. He was a one of a kind and there will not be a day that goes by that we dont think about him. May he rest in peace knowing how many people he helped and who loved him
