He was born on March 26, 1937 in Dayton, Washington to Mary and Willie Jackson. Billie Jackson served proudly and honorably for 20 years in the United States Navy and retired and brought his family to live in San Angelo, Texas in 1975, where he worked for SAISD and retired from there after 20 years. He was also a member of Southgate Church of Christ. The family would like to thank the entire staff at Meadow Creek for the love and care they gave our dad while he was there. We would like to say thank you to St. Gabriels for the personal care, love and compassion they gave our dad which allowed him to be able to spend his last days at home.
