So very sorry to hear of Billy's passing. I've known Billy since I lived on Bell street, which is where Billy grew up. He was by far the kindest person I've ever encountered in my life. One of those people who would give you the shirt off his back. I just saw Billy last Christmas at Kroger on Dixon, I will cherish his "bear hugs" for the rest of my days. Rest in peace "Yogi"!!! Love ya.

So sorry for your loss. I’ve known Billy since high school and never heard an ill word spoke of him. So soft spoken and the kind of guy that just makes you feel good about yourself when around him. Just a few years back Billy would drop by my shop at random and drop off a loaf of fresh baked bread he would get on his route. It was the highlight of the day. Rest In Peace my friend!
