Billy Ray Felsinger was born December 31, 1934, to Paul and Sefrona (Davis) Felsinger in Page, OK. He married Gloria Blake on August 16, 1963, at the home of Pauline and James Roberson in Seminole, Texas. They lived in Midland and Billy worked for Drillco. Following his job at Drillco, he drove a school bus for many years, all while running a cleaning business on the side. Billy joined Kelview Heights Baptist Church in 1970 and was an active member. His main ministry was the bus ministry, where he drove the children to church on Sundays and drove the bus to minister to them every Saturday. Billy also enjoyed the times that he got to relax and fish. Two years ago, he moved to Lubbock to be closer to his daughter and family.
