    Mr. Billy Earl Lassiter, 48, a resident of Beaufort County, passed away unexpectantly at his home on Thursday, June 17th.

    Billy was a huge animal lover, especially to his best friend Roscoe, his pit bull, who was always at his side.

    Billy spent most of his career as Chief officer at the Beaufort County Animal Control. Most recently, working diligently to secure several grants to construct an outside park for animals to enjoy freedom outside. His heart was huge, for those who knew him knew his love for animals.
