William R. “Billy” Ancarrow

WHITE STONE—William Raymond “Billy” Ancarrow, 86, passed April 4 to that big USMC barracks not of this earth. He was born March 29, 1934. Billy was a VFW member as well as an American Legion member.

At his death, he was home with his loving wife and family.

He was preceded in death by his four brothers.

He is survived by his wife, Barbara; his sister, Katherine; his children, Brian and Ann; stepdaughter, Jennifer; his grandchildren; Christopher, Elizabeth, Joshua, Patrick, Heather, Daniel, Cassie and Olie; his great-grandchildren, Basil and Gunter; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Billy was a successful Marine (is there any other kind?), meat packer, restaurateur and a devoted father and husband. He lived life with a Marine’s gusto for life and adventure. He once hosted the Russian Olympic team at his restaurant. He called “Sgt. Santa” (of the RPD) his friend. He loved the Chesapeake Bay and the friends he made there.

He enjoyed everyone he served at Billy’s, the Annabelle Lee and Rocket Billy’s. We know he will be missed behind the grill.

A graveside service will be held at Signal Hill Memorial Park, Hanover County, at a later date.
