Billy worked for Autopilots Central and Sparrowhawk for 24 years as an aviation mechanic. He was also a man of all trades. Billy’s greatest joy in life was his family. His children and 12 grandchildren were the light of his life. He kept us laughing and hugged us when we cried. He was a loving husband, father, papa. A man with many talents. There are so many wonderful stories, memories and so many great times. Billy had the biggest heart and would do anything for anyone in need – whether it was opening his home to anyone who needed a place to stay, or just lending them a hand. He loved to hunt, fishing, noodle, and raise his whitetail deer.
