Mr. Dawson was a supporter and contributor when I ran for Watkinsville City Council. He was a good man. My sincere sympathy is extended to his family and many friends.

I knew Mr. Billy Dawson through his brother Ned. We met soon after I arrived in Georgia. He never failed to speak and share greetings whenever I saw him whether or not I saw him first. Jean and I extend our sympathy to his family and friends.
