Billie was one of nine children born to Henry Keen and Edna Dunn. He was raised in Portland, Tennessee, and moved to central Indiana in the early 1970's with his wife and young son. He worked as a carpenter and construction superintendent for many years. Billie's parents and one sister preceded him in death. He was survived by his wife, his son and daughter-in-law, two step-daughters, two grandchildren and several step-grandchildren, as well as his siblings, and many nieces and nephews.
Billie was quite a character. He loved to be outdoors, absolutely refused to eat leftovers, and craved sweets and chocolate. He enjoyed fishing with his son and grandson, even though he often complained that the only thing he caught was a cold! He was a proud grandpa, and loved spending time with his grandchildren.
Although Billie wanted to be cremated, his family knew that a traditional urn really wasn't his style. The funeral home offered the option of a beautifully crafted oak box, which was a fitting resting place for a former carpenter. As a final touch, the family had an image of a boy fishing engraved on the front.
