I never knew the man, but he made such a huge impact on me just by existing. From this day forward not a day will go by where I don't remember everything he has done for me.Anonymous - October 28 at 2:50 PM
It was today I thought really hard about the words you have shared with me over our years together! I never understood them all at the time you said them but as you grow in life or go thru things you can begin to understand what someone said or taught you, then it makes sense or important! You always wanted our family to be close knit and you just didn't get to see that it was, you never understood how much everyone loved, cared or thought about you Uncle Billy. I really miss you but have we gotta talk in Paradise....bc mom let me put a bulb in guest bathroom that is a runner light color...????????yeah "Eleanor" let it happen! OMG you would only get it....I know. I love you. Your "Gigglebox"Stephanie Bennett - August 16 at 10:39 PM

Uncle Billy, you were there from the moment I was born. Love all the memories, from chasing me down to steal my camera for taking a picture of you (which you hated) to nicknaming me your “Booger” and then later nicknaming Katelyn “Boogette”. You will forever be missed. May you Rest In Peace! Love, Lyla (aka your Booger)Lyla Scott - July 25 at 8:03 PM
I can remember when you were a cute little baby boy running around and playing in Mom Mom's front yard, Then in a blink of an eye you were all grown up. I am sorry that I missed so much of that time, but you was always in my heart and loved. I enjoyed the times we did spend together and your unique since of humor as you had a way about you that was all yours. I will miss you. Love Aunt Flora LeeFlora Hutchins - July 25 at 5:14 PM
I enjoyed the 4 yrs we shared together. I loved your sense of humor, the bond you and Stephanie shared with me. I love how much confidence you had in me. I enjoyed the fun times of goofing off with that flashlight you always left with me. You just left to soon we never finished our book of memories together. Love you Billy forever and always...Jonathan BennettJonathan Bennett - July 25 at 1:16 PM
My dearest Uncle Billy, you have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. But you left a deep value of cherished memories and times together! You taught me an abundance of skills: from carpentry, tools, the DA, sandblasting, priming, painting gas tanks, how to drive, how to change my oil and flat tires. You were a awesome teacher who took patients with me and made it adventure out of everything! You were a big part of my life that I will hold dear to my heart forever! I miss our talks about Jehovah, I will miss our love for the scrap yard and our rides in the grey van we did together. I remember how much you bragged on me and how I used to say my fathers middle name was Francis. I love you Uncle Billy see you again in ParadiseStephanie Bennett - July 25 at 12:56 PM
I have fond memories of us as kids. You surly will be missed! My condolences to your family at this special time.Katharine - July 25 at 12:35 PM
Dear Billy, Go to your rest knowing that the good things you did will be remembered and Romans 6:7 says you have been acquitted (freed) from your sins. Like Martha said to Jesus, at John 11:24 said" I know he will rise in the Resurrection on the last day". We will wait to see you in Paradise vs25 "when you come to life. Love Ya, Ma.Dottie - July 25 at 12:34 PM
Love and miss you little brother. May you rest in peace. You will be forever in our hearts.Janet Blydenburgh - July 25 at 12:17 PM
