1953 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
Surrounded by his family, William “Billy” Girard passed away on October 15, 2017 after a three year battle with cancer. Born September 26th 1953, Billy was the third child of William and Frances Girard. He grew up in Burbank and attended St. Robert Bellarmine and Bellarmine Jefferson High School. Billy loved the TV and film industry. As a child, his  signature deep voice led to many commercials and TV spots. In young adulthood, he worked as a talent agent for William Carroll Agency. Seeing a need for communication between casting and talent agents, he developed Commercial Breakthrough. In 1992, Billy supplied motorhomes for use on print advertising and T.V commercials as owner of Bill’s Motorhomes. His final adventure was filming travel videos for Nevada’s Tourism Department- his true love.

Billy was a happy presence to his family and friends. His love of family, friends, and life was contagious. He will be terribly missed, especially, his constant laughter and smile. You will be in our hearts forever.

Billy is survived by: his brother, Jim (Darlene), sister, Janice (Dan), brother-in-law, Jim Favazzo, and his uncle, Rocky; 9 nieces and nephews; 17 great nieces and nephews; and many cousins and lifetime friends.

Billy was preceded in death by his father, William (2005); mother, Frances (2013), sister, Jodi Favazzo (2012), and sister, Antoinette Girard (2015).
