William May Death, Obituary – William “Billy” May was born on December 1, 1954. His parents, Wibur R. May and Elizabeth (Howard) May, both passed away before their son was born. On June 9, 2003, he departed from this life forever. Billy attended public schools in the city of Toledo for his entire education. He had a number of jobs, the most recent of which was working as a caretaker for the ESSEMAR Senior building.
He was well aware that being unemployed was not an option, and as a result, he enjoyed his profession immensely. Two of his most famous quotes are as follows: “If it’s broken, I’ll fix it; if it’s not broken, I will break it and fix it, Just call me” and “I’m the finest man in the city, and if God made anything better, he kept them for himself.
Billy has been a member of several different quartet groups, including New Generation, in which he sang alongside his sisters, aunts, and brothers; Gospel Tones; The Twilights; and his most recent group, Spirits of Truth. What a treat it was to listen to him sing as he walked up and down the stage after he had finished, singing on his way back home the opposite way.
Billy cherished his time spent with his family, particularly his offspring and grandchildren. In the family, Billy had many different responsibilities, such as making doughnuts with the parents for his great nephews and fixing things for his nieces. The colour blue was by far his favourite.
