Add Your Own

Paul Fry

I am very saddened to hear of the passing of my friend and co-worker Billy Ryals. I worked with him for several years with Halliburton and remember Linda and Amanda. This was back in about 1973 to 1977. Billy was a hard worker and a lot of fun to be around. He was our senior driver and kept his equipment absolutely spotless. My condolences to the family. Best Regards, Paul Fry
