Billy attended Otterville High School. After leaving school he worked construction as a Labor foreman until 1973. Billy became self-employed doing plumbing, electrical and remodeling houses. He also worked with a local business building houses and various other jobs. In 1996 he went to work as a Corrections Officer at the Boonville Correctional Facility, retiring in 2013.

Billy enjoyed fishing, playing pool with friends, playing cards, having fish fries, and drinking beer while socializing. He never met a person he couldn’t talk to about serious subjects or just nonsense.
