Billy was born in Paducah on March 11, 1961 to the late Luther and Mary Burge Trevathan.  He was of the Baptist faith.  Billy was a Heavy Equipment Operator and 26 year member of the Local 181 international Union of Operating Engineers.  He has been operating heavy equipment and working in excavation since he was 14 years old.  Billy loved to spend his free time rebuilding tractors and working on his own equipment.  He was considered a “one-in-a-million” by friends and family.  Billy always walked around in a great mood with a smile on his face and was willing to give the shirt of his back to anyone in need.

He was preceded in death by four sisters, Linda Thomason, Martha Sue Kissiar, Alice Kissiar and Faye Crews; four brothers, Jimmy Trevathan, Bobby Trevathan, Terry Trevathan and Donnie Trevathan; and his parents.
