Billy will be remembered as a good friend. He and my dad worked together at the woolen mill for many years. I first met Billy in 1976 when I was a deputy. He was always humerous and fun to be around. I will miss him..Mike Martin

So sorry for you loss, Mr. Billy was a good man, he treated everyone justly. He will be missed. He has joined the reins of heaven with friends like my dad Ernest Knight and many others that have gone before him. May God comfort you all in this time of grief. Thanks for sharing him, Carolyn Knight Goodwin.

I knew Billy all of my life, and was proud that he was a friend of mine. We grew up together on 21st, and even though he was a bit older than I, we were lifelong friends. I admired Billy, and thought very much of his family. I once had a long talk with him about the South Town Rinky Dink book, and he was as outspoken about our old stomping ground as I am. He gave me a story to put in the book, and loved the manuscript copy I gave him. He was a good man to have as a friend, and we never failed to share a laugh or two each time we met. He will be missed, and was one of the last of a dying breed, a true Rinky Dink. RIP Billy, I will remember you always. Don Harpe
