Billy was a member of Family Worship Center and so thankful for his church family. He never met a stranger and was a true Christian example.  He worked for Matthews and Fritts Construction Company for over 40 years and made lifelong friends while there. He enjoyed restoring old classic cars and trucks and going to car shows. Billy was a loving husband, father, brother, son, uncle, Papaw and friend.  He will be forever loved and missed until we reunite again.

The family wishes to express special thanks to Angela Vanderford, Punkin Tubbs, and Kathy Staggs for their loving care of Billy over the years. They also want to thank the doctors, nurses, bath aides, social workers, chaplain, and volunteers at Alacare Hospice for their loving care. You are all angels and will forever be a part of our family.
