Billy graduated from Providence Christian Academy where he was a member of the National Honor Society. He attended the University of Georgia and Georgia State University.

He was a very talented and gifted individual. From the age of two, he was passionate about cooking and was an excellent cook, preparing dazzling desserts, breads, pastries and international dishes for his family and friends.
Billy loved music and was an accomplished Cello player, playing in the First Baptist Atlanta Orchestra for several years. He also played the Viola in the Georgia State University Orchestra. He enjoyed playing the Flute, Violin and Piano as well.

Billy had an aptitude for languages. He studied Latin, German and French and also learned to converse in several of the Slavic languages. Over the years, this knowledge was applied during his travels to the European countries he loved so much. While working as a customer service representative for MindSpring-Earthlink in Atlanta, he developed an interest in computers.

Billy loved all animals large and small, especially his furry friends at home.
He will be greatly missed by both his family and the many friends that he made across the globe.
