Billy was born to Billy G. Williams Sr. and Cecilia Williams of Sebastian County, AR. Billy grew up in Raytown, Missouri and graduated from Raytown High in 1978. He went on to attend and graduate from Central Missouri State University with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology and Management. Billy was married to Candace G. Bailey of Blue Springs in May of 1985 and their only son Jacob was born to them in 1988. Much of their life was spent on their property in Hume, Missouri where they hosted foster children, church hay rides, bonfires, and family reunions.

His fondness of the outdoors from childhood was seen in hours spent fishing, shooting, mowing, and running with his wife Candy. He was witty and silly, funny and kind. In all things he operated with integrity, strength, and excellence. Bill had a passion for the Gospel and God’s word; he was able to finish his Master’s Degree in Biblical Studies from Calvary Bible College in 2013. Candy and Bill spent many hours together serving their church and community, from VBS skits to hosting special get-to-know-you events for Candy’s patients at Butler Hospital. He loved to support his wife, his son, and their friends. He delighted in his son Jacob and each one of his accomplishments, whether in his piano compositions or his computer programs.

Billy worked in industrial sales until he fought his first bout with melanoma. Afterward he became the owner of Bee’s Lawn Care, caring for private and business properties during the cancer’s remission. In February of 2017 he became unusually ill and in March discovered the return of the melanoma. Near the end of April he realized he was unable to fight the disease again.

He is survived by his wife Candy, son Jacob, parents Bill and Cecilia, and siblings Brian A. Williams, Catherine Meador, Stacy Wood and their families. He will be dearly missed.
