October 26, 1947 - May 13, 2013
Beloved husband and father, William S. Rollings, passed away on May 13, 2013.
Bill was born in 1947 in Berkeley, California, to Phillip and Elizabeth Rollings. He received a Bachelor of Arts from Dartmouth College and a Master of Arts in Education from George Washington University. He was married to his loving wife, Kim, for 40 years. Bill was a teacher and an administrator in independent schools for 25 years. Fourteen years ago, he founded School Office Services, a consulting firm for independent schools. Bill liked to say that he never “worked” a day of those fourteen years, as he served school administrators across the country.
A devoted husband and loving father and brother, Bill will live forever in the memories of his wife, Kim; his son, Jeff; daughter, Katy; son and daughter-in-law, Andrew and Jenn; his sisters, Eleanor and Holly; and his brother, Sumner.
Those who knew him will remember his positive attitude, warmth, and sense of humor. Bill was fond of telling others that “Life Is Good.” He loved spending time with his family, cycling with friends, photographing nature, sharing his beautiful tenor voice in a number of choral groups, and baking pies.
A memorial service will be held at The Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration in Dallas on June 8 at 11:00 a.m.
Bill asked that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to UT Southwestern Medical Center, PO Box 910888, Dallas, TX 75391-0888 to support Dr. Kevin Courtney’s research.
Arrangements are under the direction of ARIA Cremation Service and Funeral Home 19310 Preston Road, Dallas, Texas 75252 214-306-6700.
