  • Billy and I met at Toppers Billiards on Henderson Hwy. We became friends and had a lot of good memories. I knew his wife but never met his children. Bob, another friend, sent me pictures of Billy from back in the day about a month ago. We had fun in that green Nova. My condolences to his family. Billy was a good guy. - Posted by: Scott Miner (Friend ) on: Oct 03, 2020
