Passed Away On: July 20, 2022

January 16, 1934 – July 20, 2022

Billy was born in Pawnee, Oklahoma to Ruby (Eshelman) Holler and Raymond “Jack” Holler. He has an older sister, Betty Mae (Holler) Chadwell of Pawnee, and a younger brother, Wayne Allen, who passed away in 2012.

Billy met Helen Mae Stanbrough, the love of his life, in 1954. They married later that year and enjoyed over 67 years of love, friendship, and happiness together. They had five boys together, born from 1955-1968.

Billy proudly worked for 40 years as a carpenter, building residential and commercial projects all over the Bay Area in California as well as in Reno, NV. He was a great man who could build or fix anything. He retired in 1997 and enjoyed spending time with family and friends, hunting, traveling around this beautiful country, and basking in the view from their front porch out in Bedell Valley (Reno). In sum, anything outdoors with family was right up his alley.

He is survived by his wife, Helen, and five sons: Carlous of Fernley, Nevada; Arlus, Markus, and Julius (wife Linda) all of Reno, Nevada; and Billy Joe (wife Amy) of Hollister, California. Billy has 13 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
