I remember Momma & Daddy taking us along to help out at the Sportsman's in the later 70s. Lucy & I were preteens. We cleaned the tables while the family ran the business. Billy was always busy with the band. My Dad Jimmy Underwood had great respect for his family & cousins. Rest in peace Billy & prayers sent for his family.

My heart is broken over the loss of Billy. He was more a brother to me. Bill was gifted and enjoyed many talents. It is unfortunate he had to suffer his final years, but he was fortunate to have his brother Bob and Sharon to help him through his trying time. I am sure he passed knowing he was loved and will be sorely missed. We have many cherished memories of our life together. God rest his soul and provide comfort to the Underwood family.
