I was stunned when I saw Billy's photo and felt very saddened. When we were in our 20,s I was crazy in love with him. He didn't feel quite as much; but we were boyfriend and girlfriend for some time. I have considered him a friend forever. I have always respected him, and believe he is an exceptionally nice person. He was always very close to all his family members. I am very sorry for all his family for losing such a great guy. June Squier

"Wiggy" we had some great times over the years!! I always enjoyed our conversations and laughter! Your debonair style was next to none. Give me a sign from the other side when you want me to call you in a grinder order from Park Lane!! I will keep your memory close and never forget our talks together. I will truly miss them...😢😢❤️❤️ See you on the other side my dear friend.
