Billy was born in Stoneham on May 20, 1966. He was a graduate of Somerville High School and a near life-long resident of Somerville. Billy took great pride in being a self-taught guitarist and was an avid musician and song writer. A member of the Ten Hills band, Billy was at home on the stage and treasured his time performing with fellow band members and friends.
Billy will be forever remembered by family and friends as the life of every party. At every family event he was the star attraction, both a performing musician and stand-up comedian you could not even look in Billy’s direction without cracking a smile or laughing right out loud. He loved to bring happiness to those around him and did so at every opportunity.
