BILLY

Been a few years now since he left us, my troubled long-time friend, but with the passing of Robin Williams, it reminded me a bit of my old senior patrol leader and crazy person. He was a fixture at our Keystone home, and was friends with my sister Beth (who also cared for his mother in her old age). They lived a few houses apart. Here are a couple of shots of Billy Barfield, when he accompanied my sister and my two boys about seven years back to a spring down in Florida.

  1. Yes, they did. He had a very brash & outgoing, funny spirit, but with darker undertones.

    2. Yes, he served in the Coast Guard. As a chef for most of it, I believe. I believe he may have for a while served as Barbara Bush's private chef (though I haven't verified that).
