Billy was the eldest son of the late Harry and Grace (Sullivan) Lantry. His early years were spent working on his family’s farm with his parents and 11 siblings. Billy was a U.S. Army Veteran. He retired as a carpenter with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters Local 747 with 50 years of dedicated service.

He was predeceased by his grandson, Declan Michael Lantry and two sisters, Lucille and Margaret Jane Lantry and two brothers, John and Robert Lantry.

Some of his greatest joys were spending time with his grandchildren and attending their sporting events, music recitals and plays.
