Obituary

William “Bill” Glen Major was born at home in Venus, Texas, on January 13, 1939 and passed away Thursday, January 28th, 2021 at his home in Midlothian. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Ann, and his two daughters, Kim Causey of Rowlett, and Martee Adams Sepulvado of Midlothian. He also leaves behind three grandchildren - Clay Causey of Gilmer, Zachary Adams of Dallas and Calley Causey of Fayetteville, Arkansas. He was preceded in death by his parents, Roby & Hettie Major of Waxahachie and his sister, Pat Presley of Waxahachie. Bill grew up in the Waxahachie/Howard area and attended Bardwell schools. At the age of 14 he began working as a mechanic, learning skills that would serve him all his life. He was employed in the maintenance department of Burleson Honey for over 40 years. When Bill wasn’t working, he used his knowledge and skills to build race cars and even competed at Green Valley Raceway, Dallas International Speedway, and other local tracks. He was proudest of his orange rear-end dragster that he built from the ground up with his best friend, Sam McAda. In 1967 he met Ann Foster, a single mother of two daughters, and they were married December 9, 1972. Bill often said, “Those three girls saved my life.” Bill and Ann moved from Waxahachie to Midlothian in 1985. Bill frequently commented he could never have imagined living in a home like the one they built in Midlothian – and he gave all the credit to Ann. If you were to ask people who knew Bill to describe him, you would most likely hear: • Hard working • Honest • Family oriented • Great sense of humor • Best mechanic in Ellis County

Bill, a diehard listener of the KBEC flea market, the kindest man I ever met, could fix anything mechanical could keep Tom ed Burleson busy for hours while the rest of us got work done. Bill was a true gentleman. Heaven has another angel today!

I had a 1955 Chevy Belair 2 door hardtop. Bill built me some headers. I remember he had a Blue car that was really fast. I can’t remember if it was a Ford or Chevy. I also raced at Green Valley. Bill was the go to guy if you needed a mechanic. I was from Red Oak, Tx. Bill was a great man and he will be missed....:pray::skin-tone-2:

One of my favorite memories of Bill is how Uncle Roby bought him an old car to fix up and he drove it to Venus to our grandparents house. All of the kids that were there piled into the old car and Bill took us for a ride around Venus. He wasn't even old enough to have a drivers license. Will always miss you Bill. Hazel Scoggins
