Billy Frank Dunlap was born on August 29, 1977 in Antlers, Oklahoma. He passed from this life on September 4, 2021 in Cartwright, Oklahoma at the age of 44.
Billy loved the lake and taking pictures of a beautiful sunset. He had an eagle eye, could be flying down the highway and see a pair of Oakley sunshades laying in the median and pull over to get them. Billy was a world class moonshiner! A perfectionist to the last detail in his tile work, he could build anything with a little Southern Ingenuity and sweat. Billy loved to live. He fought to be present every day by living his life to the fullest. Billy loved to make people laugh and be the center of attention, because all he wanted was to make everyone around him happy. He was a true country boy who loved to play in the mud. Billy loved to sing karaoke, and would, without a doubt, sing Rose Colored Glasses every single time. He could talk for hours and wanted nothing more than a family and to be a dad.. He absolutely LOVED being a Dad.
