Billie Slayton CCA LM#198 CCS 1965-3
We received the notification below from Greg Slayton, Billie’s son. In talking with Greg, the family has asked if any of Billie’s CCT teammates past or present would/could participate in the honor guard during the funeral. If you are willing/able, please let us know, we will pass your information onto Greg.
As Greg mentions, he will keep us apprised of Billie’s health, and we will be sure to pass on any information we receive.
If you have any pictures or stories you would like to share, please feel free to pass them on.
As discussed, please see the below excerpt for dissemination to the CCA.
On behalf of my father, Billie Slayton, and family I’m writing to inform the CCA of Dad’s condition. As many of you are aware, he has been battling Parkinson’s disease and Lewey Body Dementia. As he approaches the final stages of this fight, he is at home surrounded by family. His time remaining on this earth is short. As his condition progresses, or when he finally passes, we will update the Brotherhood.
We deeply appreciate your lifetime of Brotherhood with Dad, and the extended family you are to all of us!
