A private service for William Howard (Bill) Stallings, 72, will be held at a later date.
Stallings was born Oct. 12, 1939, in Fort Worth.
After graduating Polytechnic High School, he enrolled at Texas Wesleyan University, earning a bachelor of science degree in history and physical education.
In 1977, he completed his studies at Southern Methodist University, receiving a master’s degree in liberal arts.
He was in the U.S. Army Reserves, and spent 39 years teaching and coaching at many Dallas schools, including Clara Oliver Elementary, D.A. Huley and Ben Franklin Middle Schools, David W. Carter, W.W. Samuell and W.H. Adamson high schools. He was the athletic director at Adamson High and retired in 2002.
He had a gleam in his eyes and a ready smile. Students, athletes, and friends enjoyed his company and learned much from him.
Survivors include his beloved wife, Sandra; son Christopher Stallings and wife Angel of Sugarland; daughter Robin Renea Riley of Tyler; seven grandchildren; stepchildren Bryan Russell and Ginger Sikes; many friends and his faithful dog Rex.
