William Hermon Breedlove was born September 12, 1931 in Montrose Arkansas to Thomas Charles Breedlove and Mamie Elizabeth Cobb. He was a great provider for his family and was dedicated to taking care of his wife through their 66 years of marriage. He loved his grandchildren and great grandchildren with all his heart and then some. All you had to do is mention one of their names and his face lit up with excitement.

Hermon worked at Gifford Hill and then for the city of Grand Prairie. He retired after 30 years of service at J.C. Duncan Company in Arlington, Texas. He and his wife Beatrice have fond memories of traveling all over the United States once he retired.

Hermon suffered 2 massive heart attacks in 1996 and 2006. In 2013 he suffered a brain injury which led to a stroke and coma. Doctors stated that he wouldn't pull through and if so would probably never walk again. God healed him miraculously and he thrived another 4 years. Six weeks prior to his first heart attack he dedicated his life to the Lord. He loved attending church anytime the doors were open and insisted that Grace be said before every meal. As he became unable to attend church he faithfully watched ministers on tv and loved to listen to southern gospel music.

Hermon fell ill with aspiration pneumonia on June 23rd and fought a good fight to the end 42 days later. Family gathered and said their farewells after he let us know he was ready to go to his heavenly home.

Hermon was preceded in death by his parents ,5 brothers,and 2 sisters. He is survived by his wife Beatrice, son Benny Breedlove and wife Debbie, daughter Emma and husband Bob Sheard, and youngest daughter Vivian and her husband Roy Fitzwater. He had 7 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and 37 nieces and nephews
