WIlliam N. "Billy" Yale Obituary

William N. “Billy” Yale, cherished husband of Ashley Mula and devoted father to Finnley (2 yrs old) and Iris (6 mos), peacefully passed away on February 3, 2024 at the age of 36, due to an acute asthma attack.  

Billy was born in Portsmouth, VA on April 4, 1987, the son of William R. and Elizabeth Yale while they were stationed in Norfolk, VA with the US Navy.
