Sad news from Foc-uS this weekend
« on: 17 November 2018, 09:01:14 pm »
Unfortunately I've just found out that, sadly, Billy600 passed away yesterday.
Not sure of the details, however it would appear that it was as unexpected for his wife and son as it was to me reading it this morning.

Billy was an awesome guy; front and centre at most of the Scottish meets, ride outs and shit talking sessions and the first one there if anyone needed a had with anything.
Granted it would be accompanied with his trademark grin and effortless sarcasm, but that made it all the better to see him.
He hasn't been active on the board for a wee while, preferring to get away with his family in their caravan than try and wrap himself onto his bike, but many of us have shared a beer, cider or pickled egg sandwich with the big fella over the years so felt I should share the sad news.

Not sure what the funeral arrangements will be, however I'll post them up as and when I know for those that wish to pay their respects.

Sleep well big fella, you'll be sorely missed.

So sorry to hear that. Truly sad news.  :(

More people are born because of alcohol than will ever die from it.

I didn't know him either but if you leave that kind of legacy you're a special kind of bloke.R.I.P. Billy.
never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.
