Billy and I were in the same class at Gallatin High School, graduating in the class of 1950. We saw each other at most of the reunions through the years, the last time at Bobby and Betty Ann Goodalls. I will be out of town this weekend, so will not be able to visit with family and other “old” class mates. Annie Lou PerkinsRuth Wright November 15, 2019 at 4:06 am

He will be missed by all. May the Lord give all of you much strength and courage
at this time. Love and Prayers. Ruth, Jay, Tracy, JoAnn and Glenda
Pound for pound perhaps the best football player to ever wear the “Green and Gold.” Ferocious on the field, but a kind and gentle soul.Danny Ausbrooks November 22, 2019 at 7:27 pm
