Uncle Billy was born Blytheville, Arkansas but grew up mainly in Memphis Tennessee with his parents and older twin brothers. I believe he was named after his 1st cousin twice removed, William (Billy) Thomas McDearman, who died ten months prior to his birth in Halls, TN.

Like his father and brothers before him he was a pharmacist attending the University of Tennessee-Memphis. He was in the Navy toward the end of WW2. He married Bobbie Casper in 1951 and they had three children. He operated a pharmacy in Caruthersville, MO and then in Iuka, MS with his brother Elmus Jr. He moved to Tampa, FL area and worked in the VA as a pharmacist, retiring and moving to Plant City, FL. He died of heart failure in 1997.
