Billy pursued many interests, some of which were watching television, specifically wrestling, Facebooking and previously mowing the yard. He was a good hearted man inside and out. Billy was the type of person who would do anything to help anyone, it did not matter what the situation was.

Billy’s family was his pride and joy, he enjoyed nothing more than the time he spent with them all. He loved living with his brother and sister-in-law, Rachel. Billy adored his nieces and nephews and loved them unconditionally. He also loved his brother’s grandchildren as if they were his own.
