Billy received his formal education in the Baltimore City Public Schools, his senior high school years at Frederick Douglas High School.
He had many jobs, but house painting was what he perfected. Billy could paint a wall and never spilled a drop on the wood-work. Billy also could lay carpet and tile like a pro, yes, he was a master in his undertakings.
Although he did not belong to any ones church, he was a strong believer in God and living a righteous life.
Billy was a kind and generous person who would give you his last cent if you were in need. He was forgiving, warm, affectionate, friendly and always ready to listen to others and help whenever he could. Billy had a wonderful sense of humor and seldom showed a "dark side" if he had one. He could make you laugh until you "bust your stitches".
