Billy enjoyed spending time working in his yard as well as his Uncle Frank’s yard and took great pride in each yard looking meticulous. He loved all Boston sports teams, following players and keeping up with the stats. Billy loved his time with the Nexus family and their outings to Canobie Lake Park, Revere Beach and miniature golf. He especially enjoyed the time spent with Elise Hamilton. They all loved him unconditionally and it was there that he felt at home.
Cherished brother of Christine Burke and her husband Paul, Richard Flynn and his wife Elaine, and John Flynn.
