    Billy was A great friend. Always brought laughter to our hearts and a smile that could shine the room. Thank You Sweet Jesus for such a great friend.

    says:

    I don’t know where to start, there are so many great memories in my life on behalf of my uncle. I’m confused and completely lost. This seems to be completely unreal. If I was having a bad day he always had a way to put a smile on my face. I spent most of my childhood with my uncle. I have the comfort of knowing he is in a much better place, back with his father in heaven. I already miss you Uncle Billy. R.I.P.

    Billy was close in age to my sister Jennifer Fox and that is how I knew him. I know he was so much fun and a joy to be around when our paths crossed. My heart is both saddened and joy filled as he is with our Saviour. Blessings and peace in the days to come as you experience much love from friends and prayers from those he touched.

    Billy will be missed in Vermillion on the campus of the University of South Dakota (not State). He was full of life and was very helpful to our athletic events at USD. Billy loved my championship rings from the University of Miami and wanted to have one. Now, he will always wear one in heaven as he is a champion and will now serve our saviour. I am thankful that Gary Madsen introduced us and I am blessed to have enjoyed him. Go Yotes! Neal Bendesky

    says:

    Billy is gone way too soon. What a character he was. Always making people laugh and cheering you up when you were having a bad day. He wouldn’t quit until he made you smile. Along with all the people around him. Billy was always wiling to help others. It wasn’t a problem for him because he was so talented at so many things. He made lots of freinds while he was in our area. Where ever he frequented, they knew who “Billy” was. He will be missed by so many of us. I will have a hard time not saying Billy and Crystal’s. It just went together. God bless his family and freinds. Dolly Foster Family. McCook Lake, South Dakota
