Billy moved to the Walla Walla Valley in 1958, with the rest of his family and lived in Dixie or Walla Walla for almost 52 years.

While working at the frozen foods plants, Billy met and married Rose Hessler. They had one son and several years later were divorced. He really enjoyed playing bingo with friends any chance he could get. He also enjoyed going to church and Bible study each week and being with the many friends he considered family there.
