Billy was eldest of his siblings born on October 16, 1992 and taken way too soon on August 25, 2021. He lived in Concord Township and grew up in Willoughby Hills. Billy graduated from Mentor High School in 2011. He had a bright and infectious smile that lit up our hearts and of those he knew. He made his family a priority. He was always present for family dinners, vacations, special events and lengthy conversations with his siblings and grandparents. He enjoyed fishing with his grandfather, brothers and uncles. We will forever cherish our recent family vacation with him in Florida to Disney World and deep-sea fishing. Most recently, he had a successful career selling cars making use of his charismatic personality. Although our broken hearts will forever feel the loss and emptiness of his absence, he is now at peace with his family members who have gone before him.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in memory of Billy to his family, to be donated to a charity to be determined.
