Where do I begin? Billy and I were close friends for over 40 years. I worked for him at Harbor Lanes and Boardwalk Bowl. We were inseparable over such a long period of time. I learned alot of life's lessons from him. So many memories over so many years.

Sad that some family was forgotten about. All though he had a DAUGHTER and grand daughter Victoria and grandson Vann and a great grandson Four. We were apart of his life. He will be sadly missed and forever thankful of his advice and dry humour.
