    I knew Billy only a short time but enjoyed his company during our lunch dates. He always mentioned Tommy and Steve and usually some memories about Reba. I teased him about his driving habits (terrible) so I drove his car on our outings. He was good natured about it. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to his family.

    He was such a nice man that I have known all of my life. He was so friendly whenever I saw him. I always felt very welcome at his home. I learned in my youth what an intelligent man he was from being in his Sunday School Class.

    I remember buying my first bedroom furniture from him in 1962-63. Still have it in use. Can you believe that? And, last year purchased from Normans and was happy to talk to him.
    So very sorry.
