    I am so sorry Lucy and Megan and all his family and friends. He was a good man and I know he will be sadly missed by many. We had some great laughs on the farm with him many years ago. My thoughts are with you all at this very sad time **** Love from Chris Hoolihan

    Extremely saddened by the sad new of Billy, had a big influence in my life growing up. Worked with Billy for a number of years very found memories and we had some great times, whether it was on the farm or watching his beloved Everton! Even though I was a Liverpool fan he still took me with Lee! Rest in peace Bill be sadly missed. Love and thoughts to all the family. Brendan (AKA Billy Wizz!! )

    Sorry for the belated message, we found out about Billy’s sad passing from our daughter living in Bury. Chris and I now live in Southern France. Billy was our milkman for many years when we lived in Bury, he Knew us and our children. Always cheerful, friendly and energetic, he was a familiar sight when I was working nights, we used to pass the time of ‘night’ as he ran from house to house delivering his milk. A lovely man, who was local and well known. May he ride his milk cart into heaven and pass to others his cheerful charm. Remembered always. Chris and Chris Grundy.
