Billy loved fixing broken things and working on cars and boats. He loved gardening. He was an avid fisherman and enjoyed boating and spending time at the lake. Some may not know this, but Billy had a sweet tooth! Everything tastes better with a little vanilla ice cream on it!
All who knew Billy would agree that he never knew a stranger and simply loved people. Billy had a great sense of humor and loved telling jokes. Billy always gave 110%. He understood others and was incredibly empathetic. He never wanted to be a burden to anyone.
