William, "Billy", Degnats born to William and Virginia Degnats passed away suddenly on January 18, 2018, due to complications from a blood clot. Loving Father, Husband, Son, and teacher, Billy was best known for his talents as a drummer. Playing drums with musicians and groups like: Ray Charles, Diahann Carroll, The Tommy Dorsey Band, and Ringling Brothers Circus, Billy's dedication to his craft and his ability to pass his knowledge on will never be forgotten.
