Billy Mays unexpectedly passed from this life on June 28, 2009. Billy was a famous pitch man on television, enthusiastically selling a variety of products. Through his work on television and personal appearances, Billy Mays became a celebrity. Just as famous as Billy himself was his dark full beard. Billy demonstrated to the world that a full-bearded man could appear in advertising and achieve great success. For that, I say, “Thank you, Billy.”

Billy Mays. A guy with a passion for his work. A guy sporting a great beard in the almost beardless land of television.
You will be missed by many.
Thank you for standing out and being true to yourself.
goodbye billy 🙁
God Bless Billy. We miss you.
I give Billy credit for bringing breads back to the mainstream forefront. Not that it matters to most beard guys but they have become pop again. Thanks Billy and RIP!!!
I think you’re right!
