They later divorced and Billy met Kristy Acree and together they had their beautiful daughter Gracie Loden. Billy loved to be outside. He spent most of his time working on vehicles and sound equipment as well as driving around with his music loud. Those who knew Billy know how passionate he was about music. He was always the go to music guy when it came to celebrations and get togethers. Billy loved to make people laugh and if you ever were blessed with his presence, you always left happier than when you came.
