Billy was born in Romney and attended Hampshire County Schools, moving to Baltimore as a teenager where he graduated from High School in 1964. Billy worked at various jobs before finding his niche in trucking. He was his own boss and owned “B&B Trucking” from which he retired from after traveling many miles. Billy was pretty serious about most things and enjoyed being the one making the decisions. He worked hard and long hours, and when time permitted, he enjoyed trout fishing, TV and in earlier times he was into motorcycles. He was a regular at the Mt. Top Truck
Stop and had many friends there who, along with his family, will dearly miss him.
A memorial for Billy will be held at a later date.
In honor of Billy, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to your favorite charitable animal organization.
