Billy Ray Saul, 66, born January 23, 1954 of Pulaski, VA made the journey to his heavenly home at 3:50 AM on Sunday, October 11, 2020. Billy passed from this life from his home here in Pulaski. Billy was retired from working 29 years of faithful service as Gas Service Technician for Southwestern Virginia Gas Service in Radford, VA.
Billy enjoyed doing things to help other people, whether on his job or outside of work. There were times he’d be tired but someone would have a need and he’d always go try and help, sometimes even late in the night and in bad weather. His fault was, he had a hard time saying No to people who would call. He had a knack of looking at difficult jobs as a challenge to see if he could find a way of fixing it, which in most all cases he could. Billy was also a long-time member of Hilltop P.H. Church/now Amazing Grace Ministries, in Pulaski, where he enjoyed participating in the church plays. He always enjoyed teasing the little kids at church and they liked him a lot.
He was preceded in death by his father Issac Webb Saul and his mother Georgia Etta Ross Saul and one sister Bobbie Saul Ross.
