He graduated from Guthrie High School in 1946 and continued on in the construction industry, working on many projects across the states including the World War II barracks in Alaska. After returning to Oklahoma, he joined the local 329 Carpenter Union which led him to work on every major building in the area for the next 65 years, including the Murrah Federal Building, Penn Square Mall and Remington Park.

Billy is preceeded in death by his parents; brother Earl Leroy; sisters Wanda and Helen; and his infant son Ronald Joe.
His most passionate pastime was caring for family and supporting all family activities. Billy was very proud of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and would not hesitate to tell everyone about them.
