Billy was a long time friend and we worked many cases together in Law Enforcement. I remember when I was young, he like tossing the football around with some of my young friends. We shared interest in firearms and lots of shooting events behind his house and Police Schools.
He will be missed. RIP my friend.

I enjoyed working with Billy over the past 40 years, he even let us come to his house to shoot at his pistol range several times. He enjoyed his job and was good at it! RIP old buddy!

Some of Billy's memories he wanted to share with his friends and family.

Billy always wanted to be in law enforcement and also wanted to be a pilot. Some of the things that made him smile were bagging a trophy deer and playing with his dogs. Some of the proudest family moments was when David was born and when the grandchildren were born; with Amy, Billy thought, "what am I going to do with a girl?" With Alan, taking him hunting and teaching him to shoot.
He was proud of teaching hunter safety to so many children and was the Virginia State Sheriff Champion for pistol shooting and solving so many criminal cases in his career. He was the leader and coordinator for the Sheriff's Golf Tournament to raise funds for Shop with the Cop Program and was the Culpeper Champion Story Teller. He loved old country songs, the color blue, hunting, fishing, gardening, firearms, his dogs, going to the Eastern Shore when able to and fixing things in his own way.
