      We are so sorry to hear of Billy’s passing.
      We met him many years ago thru a mutual friend (Bill O’Neal) and immediately felt as if we had known him for years. Our first memory is him coming in with a “library” of music to share at get togethers.
      Since then we have enjoyed the times we were together as couples for various celebrations. Billy was always so kind and generous to anyone in need.
      You and your family will be in our prayers for comfort and strength during this time and in the future.
      Barry and Debra Collins

        You guys are in our thoughts and prayers always.

        I am so lost for words at this moment. I have been thinking back at some of our memories that Mac so often wanted to hear about at our Thanksgiving get togethers. It is those memories that I find even more priceless now than ever. Billy was not only my cousin but he was more like my brother. There isn’t a time in the last many years that when Billy and I were together or on the phone, that he always ended our meetings or phone calls with “ I Love you Jr.”

        My heart is broken but I rejoice that he was and is my brother. I thank God for every memory that Billy and our families made together.

        We Love and appreciate you guys.

        God will be with you during this difficult time.

        Love Jr. Kim, Bethany, Logan, and Landon.

    Uncle Bill I’ll never forget when I was younger and we had Christmas time at your house or wherever you gathered it. You was a good loving man and father and uncle. I’m sorry I never got to fix things with you and tell you I love you and how great of a dude you are! That’s gonna eat at me for a very long time. I love you uncle bill! I’m sorry that I never fixed our relationship and I love you.. Please watch over me. In loving memory of Billy Humphries McCullough Jr.,

    You will be sorely missed.
