Billy has spent much of his career working as an elevator mechanic with Boston’s Local 4 Elevator Builders. He retired as a highly respected Kone Elevator Mechanic in 2013.
Billy loved his family and spent his summers at his camp at Whitney Pond in Oxford, Maine. He never said no to taking people for rides on his boat or jet ski.

When he wasn’t working, he loved riding his two Harley Davidson motorbikes and traveling to Laconia for bike week.
