Billy was born in White Plains, New York where he lived during early childhood. In 1960 he moved west with his family arriving in the great state of Texas, more specifically Dallas. His father pursued a private law practice dealing in real estate and tax law. Billy attended Richardson High School and then went to North Texas University in Denton, Texas. After college Billy began his professional career as one of the best diamond sales representatives for various fine jewelry manufacturers. His commitment to his business was exceptional and continued working until his death.
