    He was a very kind, caring Christian man, that followed Jesus teachings in his life. He was the minister that Baptized me and he also was the minister to bring my husband George & I together in Holy Matrimony on our wedding day, 34 years ago. I have watched as he did good works in the community to help people in need. He was amazing and I am sure he is in the arms of Jesus. Love and Prayers go out to his sweet family.

    Bro. Billy was an amazing man. When my husband and I purchased our house he put the tile in our bathroom. Went to church with him at West Nashville Southern Methodist Church. He is Sheltered in the arms of God now. Praying for the family

      Thank you. I heard that a lot tonight. He served many many people. Either by laying tile or laying an amazing foundation for continued spiritual growth. Tammi

    George and I loved Bro Billy. He was such a wonderful man of God. He married us almost 38 years ago and he helped preach Daddy’s funeral. I have never met anyone that had a bad thing to say about him or ever heard him say anything bad about anyone else. We know he is with our Lord today and we will all meet again. We are praying for all of you for peace and comfort.

    So sorry for your loss. I remember Billy and Wanda from church at 61st Avenue Methodist and when Brother Walker started the church on Tennessee Avenue and I remember when Billy was called to preach. I haven’t seen them in years but they would remember the Disons and my sister Brenda Dison. Will keep your family in our prayers.
