Billy and I dated during our senior year.  He was so much fun and such a sweet guy.  I saw him years later and we were laughing and enjoying each others company as if we had just seen each other the day before.  I am so sad to hear of his passing.  He served his country with honor.  I treasure his memory

Billy had an infectious smile and laugh. Funny how certain memories can be so timeless and indelible even after so many years. He'll be missed.  Rest in Peace....

Anyone who knew Billy remembers that smile, laugh, and what a really nice guy he was. Sounds like he chose a career that suited him well and he served our country proudly.  Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and no doubt his many friends.  Life well lived, Billy.  Rest In Peace.
