Billy Jene Kilpatrick ("Bill", "Dad", "Honey" "Uncle Bill" and "Buddy") went home from the hospital this week to go Home to the arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Saturday afternoon February 15. He was 91 years old from a large family (4 sisters and 2 brothers) from Haynesville, LA. His brother, James "Jimmy" Kilpatrick of Covington, is the only surviving sibling. He loved his wife, Rosina, of nearly 70 years with all his heart, and she loved her "Honey" right back! They cared for each other in the biggest and smallest ways. To his 3 sons, he was generous to a fault with every "need" and most all of the "wants" granted upon asking. He genuinely wanted the absolute best for his boys in every single decision; even when his idea of "best" was, well. . . his idea! His goal every single day was to see how many people he could get laughing; and he gave the gift of laughter to every family member. To his 8 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren "Buddy" was more than just his name, it was who he was to them. No one loved "First Baptist Church of Covington" more than he did. It was virtually impossible to have a conversation with him without hearing the latest fantastic thing that one of the church staff members or church members had done. When he retired, he poured all of his working skills into helping the church relocate from a "land locked" downtown location, to their current, beautiful location just south of town. Even when he became unable to be an usher, helping people find a place to sit in church, he still considered himself to be the "Head Usher". So, to all the current FBC ushers, you're on your own now, but as of today everyone in heaven has a great seat! He is survived by his three sons: Randy who lives in Houston, Kevin (and wife Karen) who live in Ruston, and Jeff (and wife Jodi) who live in Austin, and grandchildren Britton (and wife Jenn), Christopher, Sarah, Jordan (and wife Alissa), Joshua Taylor (and wife LeighAnne), Jon Marc, Joel, and Jacob. In his last years, his mind, rather quickly, became less clear. Loretta and her sister Josie were "life savers" to all of us as they lovingly cared for them when they no longer could care for themselves. On Thursday night February 20 from 5:00-7:30 PM, the family will receive visitors at E. J Fielding Funeral Home in Covington. On Friday morning there will be a service at First Baptist Church of Covington at 10:00 AM. This will be followed by a Graveside service on Saturday morning at 10:00 AM at Shady Grove Cemetery in Haynesville, LA. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Bill's name to FBC Covington's Building Fund. Share a memory on the tribute wall at

Not sure what to say?

I didnt know Billy, but Ive known his son Randy for many years at Tallowood Baptist Church. I feel like to know Randy is to also know Billy. They both have been devoted Christians and participants in life. And I can definitely tell where Randy got his sense of humor! Randy, I am praying for you and your family during this time. As you know, when a person dies in the Lord he is present with Him in Heaven. Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
