Mr. Bilbrey was born on July 1, 1941, to the late William and Rubye Bilbrey. He loved history books and documentaries. He was an avid movie buff and collected all kinds of movies over the years.

He is survived by his sons, William D. Bilbrey, Jr., and Kenneth D. Bilbrey; daughter, Cynthia D. (Carl) Smith; sisters, Edith Aldridge, Linda Watson, and Robbie Ward; eight grandchildren; and sixteen great-grandchildren.
