Fond memories of Billy and Virginia growing up at Coal Hill Assembly. So sorry for your loss but know for sure is is having a great time in Heaven
I worked with Billy for many years at The Singer Company. We worked as line repairmen for a few years in close proximity and had a good working relationship! He was always friendly and upbeat, and I considered him a friend! My condolences to the family!
Papaw is going to be missed dearly. I remember growing up, how supportive he was to everyone. Would do anything for anyone in good faith. Now he gets to walk the streets of gold and be with his love. My heart breaks for the East family members. ðŸ’” everyone is in my prayers
