Billy had a passion for farming and made his living doing what he loved. He loved to garden and had a well-producing garden every year. He had lived with his son and family for the last 7 years in North Carolina. He found great joy in being by Greg’s side, keeping Laura’s flowers alive, and being with his two youngest grandsons every day. He also had a love for cooking especially his homegrown collards that the neighbors would line up for. He was loved dearly by so many and will be missed immensely.
