I just read this obituary on Bill,,or Billy Don as I recalled his name long ago. I am so sorry to learn of his passing. We are very isolated from what few family members survive, ( mostly cousins) that all drifted in different directions long ago, and lost touch over the years. I live with my disabled wife, and disabled younger daughter, and miss knowing those who are still around. I send my sincere condolances, and feelings of sorrow even though we not able to be around the Ralls family after my childhood years. Best wishes, and blessings to you all. Sincerely, Remmel (Rick) Henry,,3018 Hemlock Blvd. Temple, TX 76502
I just learned that Billy joined the LORD. I am forever grateful for his friendship and his trust in me while employed at the Houston Chronicle. Billy was a good man and will be greatly missed by me and my family. My condolences to the Ralls family.
Edie,Kim, & Christi,
I am so sorry for your loss I know what a great man he was & what he meant to everyone. I will keep you all in my heart & prayers. Good Bless you all.
Luv you all,
Each of us has someone we can point to, who has had an impact on our lives and Uncle Billy was that person for me. It was from Uncle Billy that my desire to pursue a college education spawned. I can attributed what success I have had to his encouragement.
I have very strong memories of our family gatherings when I was a boy and especially huddled around the TV watching the Texas and Texas A&M game on Thanksgiving. It seemed our families did most everything together when we grew up and I treasure those memories.
Edith, Kim and Christy thank you for sharing uncle Billy with me.
I was so sorry to hear about your lost. I just wanted to let you know that you and your family are in my prayers. May God continue to Bless you and yours always.
Bill Ralls will always be in our hearts and in our minds. A kind, Generous and caring person. Ron and I will never forget the appreciation of good music and the support he gave "Southern Light".

During my 34 years at the Houston Chronicle Billy Ralls was my supervisor in the Credit Dept. for about a year in a temporary position. I transferred to another department and later he became the director of administrative services. We began a friendship that lasted until we both retired. I found Bill to be a kind, compassionate and caring person, always encouraging employees in his department to do their best. He wanted all to succeed. I was saddened to hear of his passing. John and I both send our deepest sympathy to the family.
Dearest family of Bill
I met Bill at the Houston Chronicle - he was my boss in the Credit Department for several years. He was a very kind and understanding person to work with and even though he always had a full schedule he took time to attend my wedding. Wow, what a man he was. I know he loved his family because he'd mention something about them often.
Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers...God Bless.

Unlike many, I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Billy for a lot of years but for the treasured time I did I can honestly say I never knew a man with the enthusiasm for life or his roots as he had. My sincere prayers to the family.
Dear Edie and family, I worked with Billy for many, many years at the Chronicle. He was always smiling and helpful. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of loss. Billy was a wonderful gentleman. With sympathy, Joycelyn
I met Billy through Advertising Media Credit Executives Association, Int. when we held our annual conference in Houston. Although retired, Billy was still very much interested in the organization and its members. While visiting the conference, Billy and many of his old friends enjoyed a trip down memory lane by sharing stories of the conferences of the past. You will be sadly missed Billy and never forgotten.
Our thoughts and prayers go out for Billy and family --he was simply one of the finest gentlemen in our business.
