Billy Nation went to be with the Lord on Thursday, September 3, 2015. He was born on March 13, 1932 in Cumberland County, Kentucky to Corbet and Rosie (Jarvis) Nation. Billy was born and raised in Kentucky. He moved to New Castle, Indiana in 1953.
He worked and owned Nation Heating and Cooling for many successful years. He was an active member of Charity Baptist Church in New Castle. Billy had also been an avid bowler in New Castle for many years. Raccoon hunting was another thing that Billy enjoyed doing. He and “Kate” (one of his favorite hounds) won many awards and trophies tracking together throughout the years. Another favorite past time for him was fishing; many hours were spent with friends and family with his fishing pole. Billy also loved gardening and he grew many things throughout the years. His tomato plants were the thing that he was most proud to show everyone. Billy was a wonderful servant of God and a devoted son, husband, father, uncle, brother and true friend to many.
