He worked as a successful salesman at Creative Awards, where he found his second family. Billy was also the Executive Director for the Tahoka Housing Authority before he retired on June 1, 2020. During this time he served as President for the Texas Housing Association. He was passionate about livestock and spent some of his best days at the Big Spring Cattle Auction. Billy served as a leader for 4-H and FFA for many years. He was very active with the youth; he had a love for kids showing pigs. Billy raised and sold show pigs nationwide.

Bill was a colleague and friend. When he served as THA President, I was his President Elect and then he was the Past President during my term. Four years of many telephone conversations. Good man, good leader. He was a blessing to me.
