Billy Maxwell Sr.

 

Billy Duff Maxwell Sr., 95, of Owensboro, passed away Thursday, October 6, 2022, at the Heartford House while under the care of Hospice of Western Kentucky. He was born February 25, 1927, in Ohio County to the late Oda and Mary Etta Dodson Maxwell. Billy served in the United States Army during World War II. He was self-employed, running Complete Heating and Air before retiring to work for the Daviess County School Board before eventually retiring from there after 10 years.

He and his wife Dorothy enjoyed traveling in their motor home, and Billy planted and raised his own garden until he was 92 years old. Billy was very highly thought of and had a lot of friends. He was a proud member of the men’s “Liar’s Club” breakfast group at Dee’s Diner, and was a regular at the Dugout restaurant, which is now known as Kim’s Diner.

Along with his parents he was also preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy Louise Morris Maxwell; two brothers, Ralph and Paul Maxwell; and a sister, Ann Tafarella.

Billy is survived by his son, Billy Maxwell Jr.; three daughters, Marilyn Hamilton, Judith Maxwell, and Cathy Head; grandchildren, Monica, Devin, Evelyn, Stephanie, and Andrew; six great-grandchildren; and a brother, Johnny Maxwell.

The funeral service for Billy will be 10 a.m. Tuesday at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory with Eugene Howard officiating. Burial will follow in Bethel Cemetery in Beech Grove with military honors. Visitation will be held Monday from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. and Tuesday from 9 a.m. until time of service, all at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory.

Expressions of sympathy may take the form of contributions to Hospice of Western Kentucky.
