Well, I’m not ready to start blogging again, but I couldn’t let Billy’s passing go unrecognized here at The Peoria Chronicle. Billy was the “Blogfather,” as we bloggers called him. He died suddenly of heart failure at the age of 53 on April 3. You can read his obituary at Legacy.com.
For those in the blogging world, we’ll be having a Billy Dennis Memorial Blogger Bash at Whitey’s Tip Top Inn, 2601 N. Sheridan Rd., at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 11. Everyone is invited to come lift a glass (of Diet Pepsi, of course–Billy’s favorite drink) in Billy’s memory.
My condolences to the Dennis family. May you find comfort in your memories of Billy, and knowing how many lives he touched through his citizen journalism.
