Billy James Woolley was born June 16, 1953, in Clovis, NM to the home of Doris Estelle (Canipe) and Clyde Minor Woolley and died Feb. 15, 2021 at his home.  Billy was a 1971 graduate of Portales High School.  Following high school, he and his brother, Mike, purchased a Texico Service Station near the university.  In addition, he did work part time on local farms.  After he sold the station, he farmed full time in the Floyd community.  Billy had a reputation for being able to plow a perfectly straight row.  During another period of his work life, he drove trucks, and did several different jobs on dairies.  He and his brothers spent many hours hunting coyotes and jackrabbits.

He is survived by two brothers and sisters-in-law, Mike and Donna Woolley of Portales and Tom and Sue Woolley of Denver, IA; a sister and brother-in-law, Linda and Steve Davis of Portales; and numerous nieces and nephews and grand-nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by both of his parents.
