While I never met Billy, I have known his son Bill III for 20 years  and he has many of the traits of Billy as outlined in the obituary: humble,loyal,temperate,perdicatable consistency and leader. May God comfort all the Hopper family at this tender time. Tim Keadle,Athens,Georgia.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Billy whom I have known for almost  four decades. I met Billy back in the early eighties when I was first elected Chairman, Board of Commissioners in Lincoln County.  I often called on him for advise. Billy Hopper was a good man. My prayers will be with his wife and family during this time . Walker T. Norman, Lincoln County.
