A celebration of life for Billy Moberley will be held March 24, 2007, 3-5 pm at the Ponderosa Pines Clubhouse in Grass Valley. Billy was born on April 25,1922 in Louisville, Kentucky to Owen R.

Billy was a member of the brotherhood of teamsters, Good Sam RV Club, a past member of the Elks, Grass Valley First Baptist Church, Ponderosa Pines Social Club and Poker Club.

One of Billy’s loves was his volunteer work driving for Gold Country Telecare. He volunteered for 15 years, using his own car, driving the elderly & disabled to doctor appointments. We figured out that Billy must have driven close to a half a million miles and he was proud of every one. At Telecare he was known as “Billy The Kid”. He also loved to play cards and go to Reno.

Billy is survived by his wife of 5 years, Donna Moberley of Grass Valley, children & son-in-law Maragaret & Bob Hartz of Livermore, five grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren, a second family of step-children, David & Cindy Pocapalia of Auburn, Bill & Vicki Laster of Pine Grove, and Sandra Ross of Diane, Texas, and 6 grandchildren.

Memorial contributions may be made to Gold Country Telecare, PO Box 2161, Grass Valley CA 95945.

Billy has passed away to be with his Lord, after a long battle with conjestive heart failure.

Billy was loving husband, father, grandfather & great grandfather. His family was the most important achievement in his life. He was next to the youngest and sole survivor of ten children, 5 boys and 5 girls.
