My name is William Allen but everyone calls me Billy. I was born in Glasgow Kentucky on September 22,1961. I live at Merry Oaks on a farm that belonged to my grandfather then my father.

My wife and I are members of Rolling Hills United Baptist Church.
In 2006, we stopped the Dairy Business. God was leading me in a different direction. I had been helping take care of a cemetery maps at Shiloh church for several years. Getting to know the local funeral home employees. Working at a funeral home has always been something I had been interested in.
In April of 2010, I received a call from a friend, Kevin Beaty, about a possible job opening at A.F. Crow Funeral Home. Thus began my career, I did my apprenticeship in 2015 and received my license as a Funeral Director of October 2018.
This is a career that I believe God has lead me to. It is very rewarding and I enjoy helping give comfort to families in a time that is most difficult.
