My condolences to family and loved ones as you mourn this tragic loss. Billy was my student in 2011. He was a wonderfully kind young man with an adventurous spirit and love of nature. He left a lasting impression on me and his classmates-he well liked by us all. He will be missed. Rest in peace Billy.

Billy will be missed. I got to know him when he was in high school and really enjoyed talking to him. He was so talented with his carving and his enjoyment of the outdoors. I hope he has finally found peace.

Billy was a frequent visitor to the Wausaukee library where I worked the past couple of years. He was always cheerful and I enjoyed talking with him. He shared his knowledge of gardening and even gave us packets of seeds that we were able to share with other patrons. He was such a joy to know. My sincere condolences to all his family.
