Billy never married and never had children, claiming to be a lifetime member of The Lonely Hearts Club. After graduating from Ball High School, Billy studied at the University of Houston. Billy was a trombone player and an avid fan and student of jazz. After the death of his Mother, Billy and his Dad were inseparable, and upon the death of his Dad, he received great joy in attending classes at UTMB OLLI. One of his favorite classes was the creative writing class taught by Ball High School classmate, Saralyn Richard. He also found comfort and joy with his church family at Moody Methodist Church. Billy was very independent and did not like to ask for help, even when he really needed it, yet he was the first to volunteer to help others when he saw the opportunity.
