Billy was born December 9, 1934 near Wellington, Texas to Dale and Ruby Watson. He became a Master Plumber in Amarillo. Billy married Neva Jean Miller and they spent 67 wonderful years together.

After retirement from the plumbing industry, he and Neva re-located to several states managing retirement homes. Billy loved his children and family dearly.

Billy was a skilled craftsman, self-taught in many aspects of building trades. Anything from masonry to roofing, he could fix it all.

He was preceded in death by his wife, his parents and sister, Mary Joyce.
