He grew up in Ravenswood, WV. At the age of 17, he moved to New Jersey and spent 29 years as a dry wall finisher (Dry Wall Tapers Union). He retired and moved back to Ravenswood where he shared his life with his love, Monica Rector Evans, and his fur baby, Onyx.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Peggy and Bill Elswick of Ravenswood; his brother, Butch Elswick of Ravenswood; and his wife, Denise James Elswick of New Jersey.

He is survived by his love, Monica Rector Evans of Ravenswood; his brother, Jerry Elswick of Ravenswood; sisters, Sharon (Bob) Raymond of Perkinston, MS, Therese “Terry” Elswick Shumaker of Wiggins, MS; and many nieces and nephews, who love him dearly.

Billy will be deeply missed, and his “sxxx-eating” grin, by his friends and extended family.

Billy’s service will be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers Billy wanted donations made to Jackson County Animal Shelter in Cottageville, WV.
