Obituary of Virgil Lee Board

Please share a memory of Virgil to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Virgil Lee Board was born February 17, 1947, in Dallas, Texas.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Vernon Lee and Lillie Mae Board; and sisters, Camille Louden and Claudette Dickerson.  He is survived by his loving wife of fifty-six years, Janice Sherman Board; and their three sons: Eric Sr., Roderick (Caroline), and Marcoles Sr., (Tameka). Virgil was a proud grandfather to six grandchildren: Eric Jr., Jazmine, Courtney, Journey, Marcoles Jr., and Kennedy; and five great-grandchildren: Janisa, Bailee, Brayden, Ava and Bently.  Virgil leaves to cherish his memory: four sisters, Carmeace McGary, Vernon Jean Battle, Soundra McDuff, Barbara Linzy; and a multitude of nieces, nephews, Godsons, Goddaughters, other dear family members, and close friends.  Virgil accepted Christ at a young age.  He worshipped at Pages Temple COGIC and later, Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church.  Virgil received his early education at J.W. Ray Elementary School and Booker T. Washington High School.  He continued his higher education at Bishop College and El Centro Jr. College.  He maintained strong bonds with his 1965 Booker T. Washington High School Class Alumni, actively participating in organizing a memorable 50-Year Class Reunion.   Known for his leadership, sense of community, and commitment to family, Virgil's impact extended far beyond the classroom and church halls. He radiated joy and warmth, sharing his love for family and friends generously. Virgil's passion for music and entertainment manifested in his work with aspiring musicians and the creation of vibrant entertainment venues.  He instilled the same dedication and love for music and sports in his sons, coaching them on Pop Warner Little League football teams and nurturing their educational and artistic talents. Throughout his varied career, Virgil embraced diverse roles, from his tenure as an Electrical Board Assembler at Challenger Electric Company to his co-ownership of Rods Wrecker Services and proprietorship of 3rd Kind Productions.  His work exemplified dedication, innovation, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. Above all, Virgil leaves behind a legacy of love, integrity, and the preservation of cherished family traditions.  May his memory be a beacon of comfort and inspiration to all who knew him, as his spirit lives on in the hearts of those he touched.
