Billy was a proud Giants fan. He had a passion for music that started when he was a toddler. He wrote many song lyrics and had a way with words. Billy was a fighter. He fought a very long battle. His fight showed his strength. He had an enormous heart and although he had skills in playing the drums, his biggest quality was that he loved and he loved deeply. He will be sorely missed. We love you to the moon and back! Until we meet again!
