A graveside service is scheduled for 2:00 PM, Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at Lone Star Cemetery in Point with Bro. Jay Sikes and Bro. Zach Honzell officiating.
Bill was born in Dallas on August 22, 1933, to the parentage of James Roy and Gladys Wilton Moore Stovall. At age 20, Bill joined the United States Navy where he proudly served his country. He worked as an aircraft engine mechanic and he was able to travel and see different parts of the world. Afterwards, he decided to go straight into the Navy Reserves. He married Dorothy Fern Hunter in Dallas on November 1, 1961. He worked as a grocery store manager for Piggly Wiggly for many years while raising his family. He had so much fun traveling and stopping at all the different State Parks, roadside parks, and rest areas! Spending time outdoors just made him happy. He also took great pride in keeping his yard mowed and manicured beautifully, and enjoyed feeding the birds and squirrels and watching them play in his gorgeous yard. Bill was a Christian and a member of First Baptist Church of Point. He will be missed by all of his dear friends and family, everyone whom he loved.
