William "Billy" Queen, Jr.

William "Billy" Queen, Jr., 67, of Gastonia passed away on December 17, 2021 at Atrium Health Medical Center in Charlotte. He was born on September 14, 1954 to Hilda Ruth Mauney Queen and the late William "Bill" Blair Queen, Sr. He loved the mountains where he liked to snow ski as well as Lake Wylie where he liked to water ski. Billy was a fan of all sports. He was an avid golfer who enjoyed spending time on the golf course. One of his favorite courses was Olde Beau Golf Course in Roaring Gap, NC. Locally, he enjoyed playing at Crowders Mountain Golf Course. Billy was also a "marksman" gun enthusiast and loved to target shoot. But most of all, Billy loved his red mustang convertible.

In addition to his mother, Hilda Queen, Billy is survived by his wife of 31 years, Patti Queen; sisters, Leah Drumm and husband Randy, CeCe Baker and husband Charles, and Katrina Hichman and husband Eric; and nieces and nephews.

A Memorial service will be held on Tuesday, December 21, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. at Southminister Presbyterian Church, 1401 Hoffman Rd., Gastonia, with Rev. Dan Oedy officiating. Visitation will follow immediately after the service.

Patti, I was deeply saddened to hear of Billy's passing. He was a kind person and I enjoyed working with him over the years. May God comfort you.

So sad to hear that Billy passed away, He was a fantastic person and I really enjoyed the times we were together on the golf courses. He was a competitor and pushed himself to give 100%. We worked together sometimes at the plant and again did fantastic work. I have not seen Billy since I retired in 2019 but still going to miss him. Wish I could have paid my respects to Cathy.
