Billy and I worked together at LaFrance Industries. He was a good Ian’s great friend. He helped me in so many ways. He loved his family. I talk about him often because of the life lessons he taught me. I still observe admiration Friday because of his work ethic. He was my personal mechanic. So many of the men who I worked closely with while at LaFrance Industries have passed away. It’s tough to hear of this loss. Thank you Billy for your love and care when I needed it most.
