My last surveillance has been completed. My work here has been fulfilled. Vidal “Billy” Valles’ time has ended where it started 58 years ago at Medical Center Hospital. Born August 6. 1960 to Judge Manuel Valles Sr. and Esperanza Esparza Valles, he was summoned home Thursday Feb 28 surrounded by his Family and Closest Friends. Billy was a Private Investigator for his firm Valles Investigative Agency. He also wore many hats that helped him live a happy life. In 2009 he worked as a Transport Officer for the Reeves Co Sherriff Dept. and in 2011 was selected as the Jail Administrator for the Pecos Co Sherriff Dept. Bill was also a member of the Southwest Baseball Umpires Association/ Texas Association of Sports Officials and the Texas Collegiate Umpire Association for well over 25 years. He served as President of the Permian Basin Chapter of the SUBA and Board Member for 10 Years. He was selected to work the High School Playoffs for 25 straight years and worked NCAA Division III and NJCAA Division I Baseball for 15 Years. After retiring from the Baseball Diamond, he was honored with the Distinguished Service Award in 2016 for Lifetime Achievement from the TASO State Office. Bill was an avid Texas Ranger’s fan.

He will be missed by his many Nieces and Nephews who knew him as Uncle “O”. He would call them every Xmas and pretend to be Santa. This caught on as he would call his friend’s kids all the same. He wore his Santa suit so proudly every Xmas to the family get-togethers. The kids would talk behind his back and say in a whisper “That’s Uncle O”. They will miss him as will the family. We will also miss the 3 or 4 calls you get from him every week like clockwork.

He is preceded in his death by his Parents Judge Manuel & Esperanza Valles, Grandparents Vidal and Raquel Valles, Grandparents Macario and Guadalupe Esparza, and his Uncle Robert “Cheo” Esparza. He is survived by the Love of his life Rosalina (Rosie) Alvarado who he met in April 2004 and they have been walking side by side ever since. His sons, Billy Jr from Indianapolis, IN and Elias Alvarado from Houston. Daughter Camilla Parent & husband John, grandchildren Liam & Layla Parent of Pecos. Two sisters Rosie Valles and Husband Arturo Granado of Midland and Sophia Valles of Odessa. Two brothers David Valles (Rita) of Pearland and Manuel Valles Jr of Odessa.

The Family would like to thank everyone for your thoughts, prayers, flowers and food offerings. Visitation will be Thursday, March 7, from 9am to 9pm. Rosary will be said at 7 pm at Hubbard Kelly Funeral Home.

Services are slated for 1 pm Friday, March 8, 2019 at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church with Father Juan Cortez officiating. Burial will follow at Ector County Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted to Hubbard Kelly Funeral Home 601 N. Alleghaney Ave. Odessa, Texas 79761.

I came to work for Billy after Ellen. You taught me how to be sneaky and spy on a random stranger! We had many good times working together! Don’t forget we had drama because you were a ladies man! I will never forget when you got me tickets for Ricky Martin’s, concert in San Antonio! I could probably write a book about our adventures working together.
Gone to soon! You were the best boss I will ever have!!! BJ, sorry for your loss and to the Valles family.

The Permian Basin Baseball Chapter called a lot of our baseball games while I was coaching high school baseball. They had many good umpires! Billy was one of them. Billy, like the rest of his co-umps, had one thing in mind, "To call the best game possible without favoring any team or coach". I have many stories I could share with you about Billy. I know I tried to argue with him about a call just one time, and he put me in my place. I have always respected Billy and his friends, many who were umpires as well. Many are his pallbearers: Russell Sharp, Danny Garcia, Paul Burnet, Gary Harmon to name a few.

God Bless Billy and his family!

To our family's childhood neighbors for over 30 years the Valles family. We send our deepest sympathy to David, Manuel, Rosie and Sophia. Growing up next door to you guys was amazing, we have laughed together, celebrated together, ate together and grieved together. You will always be family to us no matter where we go. You are in our prayers, and our prayers for you is that God will hold you all close to his heart during your time of grief. Love always the Ward Family.

Billy, you were such a crazy man, always made me laugh when I saw you. You were my first boss, you hired me as a favor to my dad, Tom Llanez, and I will never forget that. My heartfelt condolences go out to all of his family, he will truly be missed. Thank you for always being cool and say hi to my dad when you get there; there are plenty of you party guys up in heaven now so I'm sure you were met with a big party up there.
