Billy was an incredible man with a passion for service to others. Although our time in the FEMA Advanced Academy was short, he shared his knowledge and passion for service with the class. Billy took it upon himself to design the class pin which is something I wear regularly with pride. I will continue to think of him when wearing it. My deepest condolences to his family and community for the void he leaves behind.

My condolences go out to the family. My prayers are peace beyond all understanding. He was a kind man and such a loving person. I met him in Ocala, Florida when he was a police officer. We quickly became friends. And he loved and cherished his family. And his work was his life. My heart hurts for you all. And I pray peace for you all. Hebrews 11-1 always gets me through. My love and prayers for you all. Donna, Jim and Amanda and Family. 💕🇺🇸

I worked with Billy during his years at SLED (1994 - 2001) before he went to work at Lexington County Sheriff's Department. I appreciated our friendship. He was a wonderful Christian man who was a dedicated law enforcement professional. May God bless his family during this difficult time.

I worked with Billy for 12 years at LCSD. He was a devoted family man who was always kind to everyone. He loved working in Public Safety and spent many hours continuing his education and expanding his knowledge. Lt. Aiken, may you Rest in Peace.
