Billy was short in stature but a giant of a man! He loved, laughed, and worked "taller" than most people will ever experience. Always with a smile on his face, Billy approached everything he did with enthusiasm and passion. His daughters said he was the "perfect father", never a day passed that he did not talk to each of them. Billy loved to work; he was an expert with vehicle detailing and worked for years with MFG Trucking in Opp detailing the commercial trucks. He worked with Rainer Funeral Home and Peaceful Acres in Opp, later joining the Keahey Family, working with the funeral and cemetery company, and many times helping in the Keahey home when their children were young. Billy officially retired last year from the Edwin McIntrye Co., but continued to be self-employed in lawn care, with a large clientele of customers that only wanted Billy doing their yards. Billy's day usually started at about 3:30 a.m., and by choice, he worked long hours each day, but his day always ended by watching sports on television. A passionate sports enthusiast, he loved all levels of sports, t-ball, high school, college, and professional and all types of sports. Billy was a huge Alabama fan and loved talking sports! Billy remained physically active all his life and had been a weight lifter way beyond the age that most men continue. The son of the late Harmon and Rena Jessie Green, Billy was born in Opp and a graduate of Opp High School. Billy was a great man and will be dearly missed.
