I lived with Billy for 2 years at the U of Scranton and I can honestly
Say he was the most positive and optimistic guy in our house. He had such an easy going way about him that you couldn’t help but love him. Always the optimist. We lost touch over the years but reconnected last year and shred stories about his boys and my daughter. Oh, and fast cars. So sorry I’ll never get to race my 2004 Porsche turbo against his Guilia. So long Amsey. Dan from Denver
