We haven’t known Billy Tesh our whole lives but sure do wish we had. We’ve known him for the last 15 years and that isn’t nearly long enough. Billy is the kindest most generous man you will ever know. Giving you the shirt off his back isn’t good enough for Billy, he’d have one made for you along with six more for the rest of the week. He is always there for everyone. When you count the few true friends on just one hand, count yourself blessed if Billy Tesh is among them. He has been there for our family in every way possible. He is like a brother to us, a second father to our children and EVERYTHING to our little Riley Q. When you mention Billy’s name to anyone the first thing you hear is, “He is such a nice guy.”. That is usually followed by, ” He helped me…….”. It is an honor and a privilege to call Billy Tesh a friend. If you have been involved in any charity or humanitarian event in North Carolina and haven’t run across his big smile, warm laugh and strong hug, you should make an effort to seek him out next time. Calling him your friend will be truly worth the effort.
