Billy Martin was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend to all of those who knew him. Billy worked at L3 communications for most of his years installing and working on fuel cells on the airplanes. When he wasn’t at work he enjoyed spending time with family and friends or working out on his land with his cows, and every now and then enjoyed going to the boats or to the casino. Those who knew Billy knew he was a very kind and compassionate man, he helped anyone and everyone that he could when they needed him. He could always bring a smile to your face. Billy was a role model to many and he leaves behind the legacy that hard work, love and compassion is all you need to make a wonderful life for yourself and those you love here on earth.
