Billy was a graduate of Mahomet-Seymour High School and worked as a mechanic most of his life. Billy’s greatest love was for his family and friends. He had a great passion for the outdoors and loved mudding in his Jeep, the dirtier the better. Billy measured up to be a remarkable man and that won’t be forgotten. His heart was strong, his soul was pure and his spirit will live in the hearts of his family and friends forever.
