Billy graduated from Bossier High School in 1977, where he made life-long friends and enjoyed being a member of the notorious Bossier High School Bearkat football team and track team. Besides his sons, hunting, fishing and Dallas Cowboys football were his passion. He also enjoyed having the family over for crawfish boils regularly.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Clarice and Lois Wells of Waskom, TX.

To make his life complete, he was able to experience being a “Paw Paw” to an awesome little man, Cash Mason Meyers and his sweet sister, Preslee Todd.
The family would like to send a special thanks to Dr. Chad Hargon of Willis Knighton, Dr. Christopher Snead, Rev. Keith Adcock, nurse Stephanie of Christus Schumpert Hospice and Rev. Bryan Reed of the Simple Church.
