It is with a heavy heart that we received the news from John Edwards and Ernest Williams Jr. that Billy Warren, long time member of Catawba County, passed away at the age of 89. We have missed not seeing Billy at the trials and at the Mid Dixie. He always had a smile on his face and something good to say. Once you met Billy, you just didn't forget him. He had a heart as big as all outdoors, a dedicated beagler, brush beater when he could, marshal and judge. We have all had many great times, discussions and precious memories through the years. He will forever live on in all our hearts and we cherish the teachings, stories we were blessed to experience. Rest in Peace and Soar With the Eagles My Dear Friend. You are pain free and give the others a hug from us and thank you for all you gave to each and everyone of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
He was a US Army veteran who served in the Korean Conflict and we thank him for his service and sacrifice. He is survived by the love of his life and best friend, Bonnie, 3 daughters, 3 step daughters, 2 sons and 3 step sons and many grandchildren. We know Billy would tell us--
