Billy was a very fun loving man who enjoyed fishing, hunting, ski-dooing, boating and watching sports. Took pride in his community gardens, where he would take a drive practically every day to see if his potato plants grew an inch overnight. He loved to see company come, have a sing a-long, play spoons, whistle or strum on an old broom like he was playing guitar. He loved to laugh and tell stories/jokes.
He was one of a kind!
A celebration of Billy's life will be held at a later date.
