    ‘Hey Guy’ was the greeting that came from Billy many times when we met.
    He was a very kind person that did so much that will never be known for many folks.
    Gwen and your family has lost a great person but God has gained one!
    We are praying for Gwen and Keith and the whole family!

    I have only been a member of First Baptist Church for a few years but in that time I came to know Billy Winsett very well. Always a smile and a happy hello every time I saw him. He was a true Christian man who truly loved his Lord and Savior and who lived it every day. I will miss him so much. I pray God will help his family through these troublesome times. My sincerest condolences to his family.

    Mr. Billy was one of the nicest and kindest men whom I ever had her privilege to know and get to work with from time to time. He was always so gentle and kind. Our church family will certainly be lost without him but we do know heaven gained an angel on Friday. My love and prayers to all of his family and his many friends during this time of loss and in the days to come.
