This shows you just how much of a tragedy this is.

I personally knew Billy Stiltner. I have known him for more than 25 years, my husband has known him since they were like 5 years old.

Billy was with no doubt a Great Man. His job as a deputy in NO way changed him. He was always the same person for all of those years. He ALWAYS was a true Gentleman and was concerned about other people. He never met a stranger and never started ANY trouble. He will be greatly missed not only by his family and friends and community, but for those of you that were not privledged to meet him, you missed out on a special moment and special person in your life. His death is just such a great loss to EVERYONE in the county.

Linda, Anna, and Steven, May God hold you and Bless You with all of His Love and soothe your pain. Be so Proud and Thankful that you all had such a Wonderful person in your lives, he was one in a million.
