They shared over 45 years of marriage together and two daughters: Beth and Michele. Billy loved cars of all kinds, but especially Corvettes and hotrods. He worked in auto body, painting cars and detail them. He always took great pride in making the cars look the best they possibly could. Billy served the city of St. Robert for 17 years as a heavy equipment operator. In addition to loving cars, he also loved his Harley Davidson. Billy was a member of the Cave State Cruisers and the Harley Owners Group. He enjoyed being outdoors; so if there was a pretty day, you would find him out for a ride in one of his vehicles or on his Harley. Or you might even find him out hunting and fishing. He enjoyed shooting his guns and showing his grandchildren how to shoot properly and safely. Billy loved his family dearly and spending time with his grandkids was always the highlight of his day.
