William "Papa Bill" Remillard has gone to be with his parents and sister in heaven. He was a father, husband, grandfather, great grandfather and friend to many. He became a dad fresh out of Vietnam, when he met Judy Remillard and they had four kids of their own. He drove truck most of his life, loved being a pitman in the pits at the races for Pat Lamere and having coffee every day with his fellow brothers Kenny Lamere, Albert Gonzalez and Beau Henry. They were the best of friends and are probably having coffee and gambling in heaven as we speak. He loved his grandchildren and great grandchildren very much. He would do anything for them.
He was preceded in death by his parents and sister Bonnie. He leaves behind his wife of almost 47 years, his four kids Louis Remillard, Billie Dee, Dolores and Everett. Along with 10 grand kids and three step grand kids, a million adopted ones, and 7 great grand kids, his sisters Mary Brackney and Rose Anderson.
All the brotherhood of line riders are now together riding the line once again.
He will be missed by many who loved him
