I only knew Mr. Billy for about 7 years but he was one of the most genuine and kind people I have ever met. I know from our conversations that he loved Jesus and his family and Elvis. I will miss our chats about music. He loved my kids and they loved him. He will be missed.

We have wonderful, funny, and kind memories of Billy and Nancy at our beloved Parker High School, and growing up in City View. We are out of town this week and will not be able to attend services. We will certainly be thinking of Billy and his entire family at this time. Bobby and Sylvia (Denton) Hughes

Mr. Billy is my neighbor and love him and Miss. Nancy. Will miss going over (when I could) and watch a little football and some bud light together. Very funny, smart and respectable man. Had a heart of gold with everyone he met. He loved his family and friends with this whole heart. He will be missed dearly. May he rest in heavenly peace!

I worked in the Receiving Dept at Kmart 4016 on Church Steet in Greenville. Over the years, I met many truck drivers. Billy remains in my memory as one of the nice ones. He was always cooperative, and was a kind, helpful gentleman. My sympathy to all the Family.
