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.
