Uncle Billy Ray, you will be greatly missed! I will forever remember being chased by the chickens on your farm and all the wonderful moments you shared about your life! I know you are in a better place and know that you will forever be in my heart.
My very dear friend Billy Ray will be greatly missed and very fondly remembered for as long as I live. My thoughts are with all of his loved ones on this very sad occasion.

Your were a true gentleman BR!
You always made me smile.

I feel so lost knowing BR has left us. Anyone who met Billy Ray or worked with Billy Ray or "hung out" with BR knew what a wonderful, joyous, kind man he was and so full of life. He never met a stranger and welcomed all into his life. The world will be a little smaller and not as much fun with BR gone.
I feel so lucky to have had BR in life and my life will never be the same knowing he won't be on the end of a phone line or an email. God Bless this wonderful gentleman.
Janet Johns Johnson
will miss our many conversations and emails the past few years. Can actually say without reservations that my relations with you were the only ones i had with any of people we spent so many years together in Germany and since that time. You will be so missed. So until we meet again Rest in Peace B.R.
Good Bye Billy Ray now you are free from pain.
With fond memories of joy and laughter shared with Billy Ray for almost 34 years. Now, he is at peace without pain and can look down and laugh his a... off at us.
Billy Ray & I have known each other since the 6th grade and in all those years we have worked many times in the Motion Picture Industry. I will miss his sense of humor, his warm nature, and his ability to be a true friend to me at all phases of our lives. My prayers go to him in his transition, and to Dionne and Kimberly in their time of loss. He will always be loved by many.
I will miss him, we all will miss him. He was special.
BR, probably one of the most influential men in my life. I learned alot from you and valued our time spent together.
You will be dearly missed and never forgotten, may you rest in piece

Although our dear friend has left us behind we will always remember him with love and happiness.

Dear Kim & Dionne,
We will so miss your Dad here at the bank. He was a kind man and always had stories to tell of his days in Hollywood, and always enjoyed telling us about what his girls were up to. Pleas know that we are thinking of you at this difficult time.
With Our Sympathies,

BR was the most generous person I know.
Was just sharing my favorite memory with my Dad of our first trip to the farm and locking Kacey in the chicken pen. It was a pleasure to share a fraction of his time. Love, prayers, and strength to the entire family.
YOu are so loved by so many! My heart and thoughts are with you and yours.
Its me. You know. So many places, so many people, so many life lessons. Because of you, I am who I am in my work, and I am who I am in life because you were a large part of it. Never judging, always truthful, even when it hurt, always loyal, sometimes tough. Always, always loving....
If not for the fact that you taught me to get the job done, and get it done right, I would be there now, today. I think you know....
Always with great love respect,affection, and laughter...BR. I'll miss you.
My thoughts today are with Kimberly and Dionne for the loss of their wonderful father. I also think to all of us who had the privilege to have had BR as part of our lives. we are better for it. He will not be forgotten.
What a great Photo of him. I can hear that wonderful laugh.

Thanks for the memories. Thank you for Dionne and all the fun times in Tehachapi, for without you and the condo I would have never met my best friend. I love you Billy Ray (Dad)
You will be missed
I am so sorry for your loss. Billy Ray always had interesting stories to tell.
JAMES NELL (JIM)
Bill was a good friend and Air Force Buddy that I will miss. We had good times in Munich, Landstuhl, Paris, North Africa and even had time to have a beer. I have a few pictures of BR. One I really like is when he shaved of the beard. Looked alot like that young kid in the Air Force. Miss him to much already cause he always called me kid.
My B'Day is July 17th when I will be 81. See you later Billy Ray Smith, "May you always have some animals close by to keep you happy and content." Love Ya, Jim Nell
"B.R." I always enjoyed seeing you when I came back home to visit Mom and Dad. I will always have long lasting memories of you and Marry at "Mulkey Acers" . We all will miss you but be assured you memories will live on!!!!
Johnj and Gayle Andrews
We will miss our dear cousin and send our prayers to all who are grieving. Our sadness will be replaced with our fond memories and times with B.R. Much Love.
Gayle and Johnny
Dear Dionne & Kim,
I am so sorry for your loss. BR was one of those rare people that always made my job easier. He had a way of getting things done with a minimum of fuss. I know he always 'had my back'. He will truly be missed. His memory will live on.
Take care, Chris Nyby
My dear Billy Ray, I had gotten used to living my days alone. I was not looking for a relationship, but then you entered my life a year ago. We crammed a lot into that one year. We had fun, we made each day count. We needed each other. Thank you for the memories. Thank you for all the red roses. Thank you for calling every morning to wish me a good day. Thank you for calling every evening to wish me a good night. Keep me in your heart, Billy Ray – I’ll stay there forever. Have a pleasant journey. Auf Wiedersehen!
All my love……………eve
