Enjoyed his column in Austin American Statesman back in the day when that publication was more amenable to his kind of regional insights and knowledge. Always thought that I would get around to reading his books. Have not yet but maybe I will. My condolences to his family. Que vaya con Dios!

I met Billy when he was the Dobie Paisano Fellow.I was the closest neighbor to the Dobie Ranch. We had a number of great visits during his stay. I remember one time when the Barton Creek flooded and he and his wife were marooned at the ranch house for almost a day. A great guy

I will miss his quick wit, his amazing grasp of Texas and world history, and his fine writing! A reporter of the "old school" who will be sorely missed!
