Billy enjoyed being on the family farm in the town of Sigel and was especially fond of all of the animals on the farm. If there was an animal in need of help or nurturing, people always knew that Billy was the one to turn to. He was a skilled craftsman and enjoyed woodworking and made many turkey and duck calls. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish and also collected firearms. Billy was very mechanically inclined and enjoyed his job as a mechanic as well as working on farming machinery. He also enjoyed photography.
Billy is survived by his brother, Robert (Heather) Heiser, and their two sons, Christopher and Brennen of the town of Sigel; his uncles: Walter (Jay Ann) Heiser of the town of Sigel, Kenneth (Dorothy) Erdman and Daniel Erdman, both of Wisconsin Rapids; his aunt, Ruth Moody of Nekoosa; and several cousins. He was preceded in death by his grandparents and uncle, Raymond Moody.
A memorial will be established by the family at a later date.
