Billy was loved by so many. He was an awesome brother, a wonderful very loving husband, an exceptional father, a great Pee Paw, and a friend to all he met. 

Billy loved spending time with his family, especially his grand babies, loved Harley-Davidson motorcycles, and loved the shared interest he had with his brother with CB radios.
