It was a bright spot on a dreary day in December when Billy entered this world in Molesworth, England. During the next few years, he traveled the world living in England, The Ryukuan Islands, and Tokyo, Japan.
Billy was an avid sportsman, excelling in football, bodybuilding, and horseshoes. He played varsity football at Burkburnett Texas, Quama California High, and Tachikawa, Japan. In 1975 his team, the Marauders, won the first Super bowl in the Kanto Plain. They went on to play in the far east finals held in Agana, Guam.
After graduation from the North Eugene High School in Oregon Billy joined the army. He was posted in Germany and then Fort Sill Oklahoma. After leaving the Army Billy went to work for Tracor Aviation in Santa Barbara as a maintenance mechanic. After Tracor closed he applied for and obtained a position as a Correctional Officer at the Lompoc Federal Correctional Complex. Billy retired in 2015 and lived with his wife and pets until his untimely passing.
