What a great guy! Billy always had advice on bettering my bowling! He always had a smile whenever we all got together, giving each other fun grief! When Billy met my wife for the first time, he said “You have my condolences “ which always makes me smile when I think of that moment and Billy. You’re a good man Billy Rainey. Thank you for allowing me know and spend time with you!

I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Rainey's passing. He visited our bowling league almost every Thursday night with an ever present smile and quick wit. He will be sorely missed.

Sorry to hear this. He was doing so well when I saw him in the hospital . So many memories—lived on the same street at Southern Worsted, played basketball with him, worked with him in the mill; and in recent years always looked forward to seeing him at the Pickens Flea market and talking gardening. He will be so missed. Love hugs and prayers for all. Al Sherbert
