I worked for Billy in Sulphur for 11 years. He was a wonderful employer and all of the employees loved him. I am so sorry for his family, he was a wonderful man and he will be missed.

My sympathies go out to Billy's family. We have sold his saddles and strap goods in our store for many years. Quality tack. Prayers to the family.

A great friend, Billy did a lot for me when I was young. Rode his horses ( good horses ) ; roped his calves; pulled his trailers; he gave me ropes and strings.
Great saddle maker .

Billy was a good friend, have not seen him since I moved to Idaho, be I traded him Beefmaster bulls for saddles over the years, we had fun drinking coffee and "haggling" over the price of bulls and saddles..Thats been many years ago, and I had probably 6 or 7 saddles, but the best one was one he personally made for me..I wore it out over the years..Rest in peace Billy I will look you up in the not to distant future and we can do some swapping, I guess the good Lord will allow us coffee!!

My condolences I was sad to hear this news. I have many fond memories of my Uncle Bill from childhood. My brothers and I loved our visits to his saddle shop and riding the horses. May he go with GOD. My prayers for his family.
