Billy settled in Tahoe and lived there for over 45 years. He started his own maintenance business. He worked on homes and Vacation rentals in Tahoe.
Billy was accomplished in all he did and he was very loved by his family friends and all who came into his life. His big smile and bubbly personality were contagious. When he wasn’t working, he was enjoying skiing in the winter‘s and boating on his boat and water skiing with family and friends and his dogs in the beautiful summers. He lived in this family home that his grandparents George and Peggy bought in 1967.
Billy found his way back to his childhood sweetheart Kimberley Allison Harris Ramsey in 2004. In 2010 Billy and Kimberley were married in a beautiful outdoor wedding at his home with their family and friends. The Tahoe home was full of family and friends love and good times.
