It was a blessing to have known you Billy. We had some interesting times in our much younger days. I was proud of how you turned your life around. You had far more courage than me. I’ll miss you.
There are so many memories of 50 years growing up together in Sandy Springs and Ridgeview High and then reconnecting in the North Georgia area in 2008 but last Halloween took the cake. He joined myself and best friend Susan Bernhardt Holliday in Cumming for dinner. I answered the door and there he was in a Barbara Bush mask and I jumped about 3 feet as he scared the ? out of me! Oh Billy I miss your humor and grace. You were truly a forever friend. Love, T. Hall
Billy was the “wind beneath my wings”. He carried me when I could not carry myself…made me laugh when I could not laugh…inspired me when I had no inspiration…and loved me when I didn’t love myself. He was my hero, my companion, my friend. He left an impression on all who knew him, and all who knew him will greatly miss him. His presence in our lives was big…like his big beautiful heart. To all his family, extended family, and friends, I share my deepest condolences for the loss of your dear sweet brother, uncle, cousin, and friend. May our memories of this beautiful soul reside in our hearts and bring us comfort. Love to all…Debi
I must have been 4 or 5, but it was Christmas Eve circa 1985 and we were at my grandparents house, the parents of Billy Goat (as he was affectionately known by his nieces and nephews, of which I am one.) I was in the basement and was told to get on the phone because Santa Clause wanted to talk to me. I could not have been more excited. Years later I would discover it was uncle Billy Goat, but that will always remain one of my favorite holiday memories. Rest In Peace Billy Fricker, you’re family misses you.
