I have a lot of pleasant memories of Billy from our high school days in Walhalla. Billy always had a smile and happy face, always enjoyed having a good time, sometimes with a bit of mischief. About the time we graduated, some one climbed the water tank near the Walhalla pool and painted "Class of 1953". Billy never owned up to it but it was pretty well known that Billy was responsible. Condolences to the family. RIP old friend.

Dear Vera Ann, Gary, Scott, and Family, A legend has passed. Billy always personified the term "character" in a good way. It can be said of someone that you always know where they're coming from. Not so with Billy. He always kept me on my toes even while he was stepping on them. He was always trying to get ahead of me even though I was constantly two steps behind him. All joking aside, Billy was a great friend to me as well as a loyal customer. I know how much you will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sincerely

Joe Kirby Jan 23 2021 12:00 AM
