I am devastated to hear of your passing. Rest in peace Billy Williams. Your energy, kindness, and sense of humor will be missed so much. I didn’t think seeing you at Dustys in the spring would be the last time or I definitely would’ve hugged your neck a little bit harder. I thought you were gonna live forever. ~ Tori Lee He taught me how to bowl, like be good at it! I’ve known him for years!! I watched him bowl a 300 one time. He was so nice. I’ll never forget the day you bowled a 300 right before my eyes. I watched you bowl that entire game! You taught me how to never get below a 120. My best was in the 260s. You’ll be greatly missed! ~ Laura Lee Billy, you were like a big brother to me and loved as such. The world lost a great man and one of my heroes. RIP brother. ~Randy He was always so kind to me and always had a welcome smile. He was not only my dad’s cousin, he was his best friend. ~Renee When I was taking public speaking in college, I called him to tell him how terrified I was of speaking in front of my peers. He said ‘Annette, you stand in front of that room and look around. And you say to yourself there is no one here better than me!’ ~Annette Gerrell Billy was a good friend and he never met a stranger. I’m really going to miss him. ~Lester He was a great friend. ~Scotty Billy was one of a kind! ~Karen Billy was a good friend.

Raced motorcycles with Billy in the early 70’s. He was a friend to all and was always willing to help out. Also bought a used car from him when he worked for Pontiac in the early 70’s. May his family find peace with his passing.
