William Albert "Billy" DeBord

March 15, 1952 — May 14, 2022



William Albert “Billy” DeBord, age 70, went to be with the Lord Saturday, May 14, 2022 at his home.


He was born to the late Robert E. and Dorothy Chapman DeBord. Billy was a loving husband and a good man who was kind to everybody. He loved to joke but his favorite thing was being “grandaddy”. Billy was the neighborhood “doer”- he plowed gardens, buried pets, and would help out however he could. Everybody loved Billy; and he sure left his mark on this world.


In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his step-son, Michael Null.


Left to cherish his memory are his wife whom he loved with all his heart, Shirley Boardwine DeBord; son, Billy DeBord (Emily); 4 grandchildren who were loved unconditionally, Jessee DeBord, Jon Bradley Hogston, Dru and Dixie DeBord all of Saltville, Va.; brother, Bobby DeBord (Karen) of Marion, Va.; sister, Brenda Smith (Jim) of Cookeville, Tenn.; brothers-in-law, Cletus Boardwine, Billy Boardwine (Brenda) and George Boardwine (Georgia); sisters-in-law, Carolyn Neal and Barbara Griffey (Clarence); special aunts he dearly loved Patsy Blevins, Corrine Weaver, Dorothy Everhart and Barbara Moore; nephews, Ryan Smith (Jessica) and their children, Jordan, Henry and Charlie all of Cookeville, Tenn. and Chris DeBord of Chilhowie, Va.; niece, Courtney DeBord of Bristol, Tenn.; special friends who helped him so much during his illness, Clarence, Cletus, Michael Umbarger and George Robbins.


At Billy’s request, there will be no services at this time. The family will have a memorial service at a later date.
