My sincerest condolences to this wonderful family.
I only had the pleasure meeting Billo a few times. However, he and his family took me in as if I was their own. I spent Labor Day weekend in Valley Head/Fort Payne back in 2007 and it was one of the most fun and memorable weekends I can remember.
Lots of fun, food and laughs!
He was a special man.
My thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends during the terribly difficult time.

My family were lifelong friends of E.T.. and then, Cannon, after they married. Bi;lo was a dear part of Valley Head. A great ballplayer . Soo likeable; his personality brightened your day.

My deepest sympathy to Becky and daughters on the loss of your husband and father. May you find comfort in remembering all of the wonderful times together. Billo was always quick to lend a helping hand and sweet smile. His kind spirit will be missed by all who knew him, especially his VHHS ‘63 classmates!

So sad to learn of the passing of our VHS '63 classmate. We saw and talked to each other every school day for 12 years. Even though many years have passed, the loss is large. Prayers for his family.

I'm sorry for your loss. Billo was one of the first kids who spoke to me in the first grade. He was always a good guy through high school. I'm glad I got to talk to him and his grandson at our last reunion.

I am so sorry for the loss of your husband, your father and my best friend. Billo and I had great times together at VH, grades 1 thru 12, and beyond. He leaves us with some memories that will never die. My heart is with you during this time.
