Billy Joe Wilson passed away July 13, 2021. He was born May 9, 1950.
Billy lived a very colorful and amazing life. He was a true success story, evident by his 28 years of sobriety for which he was so proud.
Billy touched the hearts and lives of everyone he met in his short 61 years. His cheer and smile, silly jokes and stern words of wisdom will live on in our most cherished memories.
Billy Joe leaves behind his daughter Leslie and husband Dennis and their two beautiful daughters Dakoda and Zoey. Also, his spouse and cherished love of 18 years Diana Britton; his step-children Vicki, Jill, and Corey; and grandchildren Jeremy, Harley, Ryker, Donovan, Derrick, Cyrus, and Vincent; his nephews Ryan and Michael Wilson and great-niece Marley Jean; and his niece and nephew Michele and Kyle Overton with his great nieces Bailey and Parker.
Billy also had a brother and sister with many nieces, nephews and greats, as well as his AA/NA family, which he held so close to his heart.
Billy is predeceased by his father James Wilson, his mother and step-father Norma & Clady Lokey, and his sister Karen Wilson.
