Comments: Billy is a very dedicated family man.  He loves watching his kids at gymnastics, track meets and little league softball.  Billy is very proud of his oldest son Jamie Miller that is based at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.  Billy gives back to the community by being involved with “Pumpkin’s in the Park”, and as a member of The Gun River Conservation Club.  When Billy has a free weekend he enjoys going to the family cabin up north to get away and relax.
