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).
