Billy was a Veteran of Operation Desert Storm where he was a nuclear mechanic on submarines in the Navy. He loved all of the places he visited, but his stay at the North Pole in May 1987 was his favorite. He entertained many with his stories of life at sea, especially on the Sea Devil.
Billy’s last job before retiring to return to his childhood home in July 2022 was Service Manager at Snead Tractor LLC in Centre, Alabama.
