William Walsh Jr. (Billy) was born on August 10, 1985 in Boston, MA. He grew up in Charlestown, MA and was very proud of where he came from. He spent the later years of his life in Quincy, MA where he unexpectedly passed away on February 9, 2021.

Billy is preceded in death by his younger brother Kevin and his grandparents George and Jean Walsh.
Billy treasured his family and friends. He could talk to anyone and knew everyone. He was so stubborn and could argue with you 'til the end of the Earth if he thought he was right. When Billy loved, he loved hard. There was no greater love to him than that of his children, his parents and his siblings. Billy liked to read, draw and write poetry. He enjoyed playing video games and could watch reruns of "Supernatural" a million times. Billy was truly an amazing force of energy.
Billy had a long time struggle with drug addiction and unfortunately wasn't able to overcome it, the demons won. If only love could have saved him, he would still be with us. His pain is over and he is at peace. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to "Giving Hands". Billy loved this program as it helped many people he knew have a hot meal.
Visiting hours will be held at Casper Funeral Home located at 187 Dorchester Street in Boston, MA 02127 on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 from 3 - 7 PM. Interment services will be private.
