Billy enjoyed fishing, and tinkering on anything with a motor in it and watching the races every Sunday. He loved spending time in Alaska with his daughter, most of all he loved spending time with his faithful friends, and he had lots of them, especially Jr. Roberts, and Mamie who he lived with for a while in Clinton, and Glen (Porky) Burris who was always there to help, Mark Dishman (cousin) but more like a brother, and special niece Abbie whose Grinch laugh would make him laugh out loud every time. Billy will be missed every day, by all who loved him. He asked that no service be held, and for everyone to remember all the memories he made with all of us.
