My baby brother got me into more trouble! Every spanking I ever had, not but 3, was his fault. He was a real tease at the same time we would run out to Krispy Cream to eat dounuts and he would always do something so funny that he had the waitresses entertained and I laughed as well. He always had family members entertained at an early age as no one else could ,
And got with it . “Because he was so cute” as everyone thought. He use to undress all my dolls as a toddler and when I came home from school I would cry. Then he would have that twinkle in his eyes as he smiled about it. That twinkle in his eye won the hearts of many.
He as well as my older brother we’re great friends as well as brothers.
His ability to tell jokes in a bad situation was amazing. As he was told he had cancer and all 4 siblings gathered for a meal with Julie, he read 4 sheets of jokes. What a great laugh we had. That day was another entertaining exp erience for him! He laughed as he read them!
What a great brother and friend.
I hope he is a good contact to get things done when he meets His maker!
Loveingly, Dottie his baby sister

Many Happy Memories come flooding to mind when i think of Billy growing up with us in East Nashville , Holy Name School, and Father Ryan High School. Billy usually rode with us coming home from school when I became of age to drive in 1963, and there were many stories I could tell, some of which are better left to memory, but all were quite humorous. But before that, we played Parochial League football together at Holy Name. Billy always gave us humor with his funny remarks and antics. He was a naturally funny guy with an amazing talent for timing with his funny utterances. It was readily apparent though that Billy was a tough little guy, no mistake about that. He was quite a character as well. Billy found humor in just about anything and everything and he could make you laugh till your sides were hurting. I really miss those young years growing up with him and my brother Kelly.

I will miss you, Billy, but with hope we'll all be reunited in Heaven. With prayerful hope that God will give you peace and comfort from the tribulations of this life.

I appreciate having known you and Julie. Not just coworkers, but friends as well. You will be missed. Many of us knew you from the Hall of Fame. You provided guidance and laughs along the way. Your smile and that twinkle in your eyes ... priceless. God speed from John and me. With love
