Billy worked at Crossfield Chemical and retired after 41 years of dedicated service. He was a family man and enjoyed spending time with them. He enjoyed camping, hunting, being outdoors and especially agitating his oldest son. Billy was a jack of all trades, he could fix anything and found great joy in building houses. He will be truly missed.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the family would be appreciated.
