Today is a very sad day for our family. Tex , you have no idea how much you are loved and missed. Our family has lost 😞 you, but lives on through your grandsons. For that we are very fortunate. The memories of how we all meshed and cared about one another from day one is something that can never be taken from our hearts and souls. You will stay forever from the stories that Linda shared about you to us. We laugh and still rehash those over and over! The look on your face as she would describe these was priceless! Yes, you were a quiet brat in so many hysterical ways! The family has changed so much over the years, but, you never did.
When the kids were first married and we started the tradition of us always together at our place for birthdays, the Grand Nationals with Joey’s birthday, holidays and sometimes just because. Those times are gone, but, not the love we all shared. Our grandsons so loved and respected “Their Pops”! The weekend when you were here and Boomer, Missy , you, and myself went to that new bar/restaurant, was such a good time. I will treasure that memory until I draw my last breath. I can’t say goodbye to you today, as with Linda and Bob you just need to rest now. Lastly a huge Thank you for sharing your son, Boomer, as he is the best Son-in-law I could have ever asked for, the best Dad for Tor, Joey and JB, and husband for our Missy.
❤️RIP POPS❤️

Billy worked with our son, Kevin. He was so good to him. Kevin really really liked him. My husband and I just asked our daughter-in-law about Billy. We were going to touch base with him. We tried to stay in touch with him after our son was killed by a reckless driver. I'm sure they are in Heaven together sharing some good times. I pray the loving memories comfort you in your time of grief. God Bless.

Lynette, Kevin, Morgan and Paige.
Words are hard to help you all but I do know we have to be thankful for what your Father (and Grandfather) left behind.
A beautiful family with many life memories.

I would do anything to throw the baseball with pops again, go to a car show, or even just watch football or movies and eat candy while he sat in HIS chair. It’s the smallest things that I’m going to miss the most. Pops was the strongest person in my life, my role model. Saying Im going to miss him and I love him is a massive understatement.
