    Billy Owens, was a gentle giant. When he shook your hand, your hand disappeared. His hands were ginormous! He had a calm, cool collected vibe. He loved to recount tales, with a twinkle in his eye. We all appreciated his sense of humour. Billy spoke his mind, he left nothing to your imagination. He called a spade a spade! Thankful for the memories, including plowing his corn field, beers (warm, never cold), card games, and a good feed! Miss you Billy Owens, you were one of a kind!
