Linda and Billy I can not express how sorry we are to hear of the passing of Bill. From Collier County Speedway to early morning breakfast and after parties at your home. Those were some of the best times in our lives. We hold our memories of all the good times and Bill dearly in our hearts.

I pass along my sincere condolences to Bill's family. I met both Bill and Billy in the All Pro racing series, and appreciated Bill's desire to win and compete at the highest level possible. Along with a gruff tone in his voice, came a wink and a smile that I have always remembered. A gentleman, a competitor, and someone you were pleased to call friend, will be missed by more than just family. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear of your dads passing. Like you I grew up going racing with my daddy and not a day goes by that I don't think of him. Cherish the fond memories and keep racing hard with your boys like we know he would want. Prayers to you Kim and the boys.

Condolences to the Bigley family!! Sr. was the greatest and hardest working owner I ever knew!!! Many times we chatted ,as we were always trying to beat the other to the gate first so our haulers could get that pick parking spot!!! Sr. always joked that I had a fifteen hour head start,because of the distance he had to travel just to get out of south FL. Well Billy Sr., you won, so save me a spot at heavens gate!

Thanks for all the memorable moments of your family racing and the enjoyment you brought. Over the years I enjoyed announcing and interviewing you and Billy Jr. It always amazed me how much to did in chasing the "Checkers" at so many tracks! To the family true sympathy and as you recall your dad's words Billy Jr., those memories are the greatest of all for you did it together. Bill Hennecy

"When I read of Bill's passing it felt like I lost a family member - having know him longer than any of my own family. He gave me my first job in Naples back in the later 60's.
Enjoyed hearing the stories at the service. I will miss him stopping by once in a while just to chew the fat." -Len
