Billy was educated in the Montgomery County Public Schools. He graduated from Damascus High School. During his school years, Billy played drums, ran track and field and also did gymnastics.
Billy loved fishing. He spent many days with his wife, Bernice and friends at various fishing sites and parks. He also hunted. When Billy wasn't fishing, hunting, or watching football, he was at ''The Office" (the local McDonalds) meeting with friends. Billy also loved his "soaps". He could talk to you for hours about the shenanigans on Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful.
Billy was an avid Redskins fan. On any given Sunday, Billy could be found, Darryl Green or Sean Taylor jersey on, sitting in his favorite corner on the sofa, watching the game. He also loved going on bus trips with his daughter Toni or sometimes going with friends.
He worked for the State Highway Administration for many years, retiring after a debilitating injury on the job.
