Billy was born to James Maynard Human and Eunice Lenore Campbell on February 22, 1944 in Stillwater, OK.
He attended Pleasant Valley, C.E. Donart and Oklahoma State University, he got his CDL when he turned 21 and loved driving any kind of semi. Bill knew more about trucks and always willing to visit with anyone on how to repair any semi or vehicle. He could tell any driver how far or tell what highway to take. He didn’t care how shiny it was as long as it would pass any truck on the road. His most favorite hobby was drag racing. He wished that he could have done more of it; if he was not participating then he would enjoy it on TV. He was a hard working man that loved his wife and children.
Billy was preceded in death by his parents.
