William Hillard Fort

October 21, 1936 ~ March 27, 2018 (age 81)

A hardworking man went to rest on March 27, 2018. Mr. William Hillard Fort was born on October 21, 1936 in Seagoville, Texas to Cecil and Minnie Moore Fort. He grew up as his wife would say in the slew. William was a guitar picker who played by ear. He also loved to tell a joke and get a belly laugh from the jokes he told. Mr. Fort was a jack of all things he did and a master craftsman at anything he touched. He worked many jobs and places and the last 13 1/2 years of employment, William worked as the head maintenance mechanic for Senior Care Consultants in Rowlett. He was preceded in death by his parents, daughter Brenda Fort and sisters Judy Olyn Yoakum and Hazel Hall. Mr. Fort is survived by his faithful wife of 64 years Joan M. Fort, sister Celiau Sells and a number of nieces and nephews. Those honored to serve as his pallbearers will be his nephews Kelly Yoakum, Kevin Hall, Joshua Hall and Keith York.
