Billy Eckert passed away February 15, 2024. Born in Frankfort, Germany, he was the son of Monica Ruis Hughes and the late Tom Eckert. Billy was a loving son, father and brother who enjoyed collecting and re-selling “treasures”. He was a truly giving person, who would help anyone in need. He loved rock and roll, fast cars, beautiful women and traveling to new places and meeting new people. Billy was also known for his sense of humor; he enjoyed making people laugh. He will be missed by everyone who knew him, and we know that one day, we will all be reunited in Heaven.
