Billie worked tirelessly as an Aircraft Fueler at Newark International Airport for almost 20 years traveling back and forth to South Jersey where he relocated his family to Browns Mills. Billie better known as “Pop Pop” to everyone was adored, admired and respected by many. Billie would take the shirt off his back to provide for whomever he thought was in need.
