Klein Funeral Home - Tomball Obituary

William "Bill" Lewis Black, 75, of Spring, TX, passed away on April 25, 2017.

He and his wife, Mary Lou, attended and loved the University of Kentucky which started a lifetime of rooting for their beloved Wildcats basketball team.  After marriage in 1964, a successful engineering career, and raising three boys, he retired to avocations on the Northampton Municipal Utility District Board, church missions projects mentoring youth at Schultz Elementary School, and making Christmas baskets.

His greatest joy was always being with his family, spending time with Mary Lou, his sons and daughters-in-law, and his five grandchildren. He was loved by all and will always be remembered.

A memorial service celebrating his life will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 29, at Klein United Methodist Church, 5920 FM 2920, Spring, TX 77388. Following the service, a reception will be held in the Christian Life Center at the church.

Not sure what to say?

My late husband,, Jim, and I knew Bill and Mary Lou from Law Engineering. We enjoyed social times together also. My prayers are with the family as you grieve the loss of Bill. I know that Jim was around to welcome him to his heavenly home! He and Mary Lou will always be remembered fondly by me.

Prayers for Bill's soul and for MaryLou at this hard time. Happy memories of Indian Guides, the Jadesox and all our boys growing up.

Mary Lou and family, looking at Bill's remembrances it is easy to see I was not the only one who enjoyed Bill's guidance and humor. I met Bill for the first time almost 10 years ago when he interviewed me for the Environmental position at Omega. After the interview a group of us went out to lunch where we woofed about our college basketball and football teams. That's when I knew I was comfortable coming to Omega. We at Omega will miss Bill and I in particular will miss trading stories...

Mary Lou and family, please accept my condolences. You and Bill were among the first people I met in Northampton and I have fond memories of tennis and all the associated social gatherings. Bill was a wonderful resource to me for any question I had related to our community. He was always concerned, a generous soul and he will be missed.

My most heartfelt and sincere condolences to Mary Lou and all of Bill's family. He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten. Such good memories of Derby parties and tennis gatherings. Always enjoyed conversing with Bill, and his sense of humor!

To Mary Lou and Family,

My family and I are devastated to hear of the sudden death of Bill. He will be so missed by all of us as we remember the fun times we have had at family gatherings. My boys recall the time in their early lives when Bill rode a bicycle with them and how they admired him at that young age. We all chuckle about the cookout with steak au jous that bill remarked about many, many years ago. All good and fun memories. Know that he will be sorely missed by this...

Sending love and hugs to Mary Lou, Andy, Alan, Jimmy and each of the grandchildren and daughters-in-law. Remembering all the fun and interesting times we shared from Dixie Heights to Houston, TX. Bill will be missed but not forgotten. He now has his angel wings.
