Billy was a great man whom I would never want to meet in a dark alley. His love though was great. We loved him like a brother. He will be missed all the days of our lives while we are here on this earth. God speed Wild Man.

So sorry to hear of Billy’s passing. He was a wonderful person and quite the prankster. I have lots of memories of you two, especially your wedding and the time he loaned me his Volkswagen when my vehicle was being fixed. He told me not to put the window down…I stopped at McDonald’s and forgot! Someone was looking out for me because it went back up! We will surely miss that twinkle in his eyes. Hugs to you and your family.
