Obituary

Billy McCoy Saxon of Boerne, Texas was born December 19, 1945 in Montgomery, Alabama as the oldest of three children born to B.B. and Violet Saxon. He passed away surrounded by his family November 6, 2018 at the age of 72 after bravely battling several serious conditions. Billy grew up in Florida and later moved to San Antonio where he met his wife.

He is survived by his loving wife, Andrea; sister, Nita and her husband, Wyn; brother, Robby and his wife, Rita; son, Aaron and his wife, Carol; daughter, Katie; grandchildren; great-grandchildren; nieces; nephews; and cousins.

Billy spent most of his career as a defense contractor and later manufacturer/retailer of fine coffees. The final years of his career were dedicated to helping foster children at Families Especial in Boerne. Billy also proudly served as president of the Boerne Greyhound Athletic Booster Club for several years. During that time, he founded a golf tournament to provide scholarships for Greyhound athletes.

Family get togethers were some of his favorite things. Billy was a gourmet cook who could grill with the best of them. He enjoyed college football and watching his grandson, Luke, play football. He loved children and was delighted to play with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren who all adored him. Billy was always the first to volunteer to help any of us, no matter the task. He was quick with a joke or funny story. Billy never hesitated to speak his mind or share his wisdom.

Billy went through this life on a very tall 6'8" frame. His physical size was eclipsed only by the size of his heart. Billy was the best husband, Dad, brother, Grandad, uncle, and friend that any of us could ask for. He left this world a much better place and will be missed every day.
