So sorry to hear of Billy's passing. I just found out today as I've been living in Wisconsin for the past 8 years and haven't talked to any of my Oklahoma friends in a while. He was a good and loyal friend to me. He was a great guy. Godspeed Billy, and God bless your family!

Sincerest Condolences to his family & close friends.
I worked with Billy for many years. He was only quiet & reserved until you got to know him. Fly high friend!
