I've known Billy for about 15 years but in the last 5 years we became good friends. He was always good for a game of cards mostly cribbage and ginn,a good horse race story , or an argument which he usually won until Google came out and he realized he wasnt "always" right lol.. He was a good friend and had a big heart especially for my two daughters Madison and Mackenzie.. Unfortunately I have to work all day Saturday and i thought to take it off but I could hear billy say "go make that money for your family".. My heart goes out to all of Billy's family and friends ..Rest in peace
sincerely Matt Orsi
