Billy loved being with his family and was a very proud father of his 3 daughters. He enjoyed hanging out with friends; music, dancing, Washington Football, playing keno, horseracing, cooking and traveling were among some of his passions. He was a man that you could always count on, always available to help out friends and family. He had a very kind heart and a quick wit, and will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved him.
