Billy and Juanita farmed and ranched in the Matheson area for many years prior to their retirement. Billy always thought that land was a great investment and continued to purchase additional land even into his late 80’s. Billy and Juanita enjoyed traveling and cherished the friendships they made on the many group trips they had taken. Family was very important to Billy.
