Billy is my younger brother and I will miss him dearly. He was a loving and kind man that loved his family and friends with all his heart. I was lucky to share in his life as a sister and friend. He was proud of each of us and his greater joy was to be called Grandpa by Hunter. So proud of his soccer skills and fishing too. I will miss him more that words can say . Love you Betsy
