Billy was employed by West Point Pepperell for 30 plus years, where he served as a VP of Human Resources. He later worked in Human Resources for several companies in North Carolina, Cartersville, Chickamauga, and LaFayette.

He possessed a strong work ethic and loved his job and his employees.

Raised in the Episcopalian Church, Billy later joined the Baptist faith.

He was an avid outdoorsman often found with a fishing rod or cane pole in his hand, hunting in a stand or blind, or simply enjoying the beauty of the great outdoors.

Anybody that knew Billy, can attest to his amazing story-telling abilities and his love for reading.

Above all, Billy was an optimistic and selfless man with an incredible work ethic who dearly loved his family, especially his grandchildren.
