Billy was a cowboy at heart and loved roping and riding. He was the most fun and loving friend with an infectious laugh that could light up the world around everyone. He loved his dog “Brady,” who was his constant companion in his last days. Billy was also an avid hunter and made some lifelong friends at deer camp. He had many special ladies at the Oaks Memory Care Unit who loved him and took very special care of him in the last months.
