William (Billy) W. Sovine, age 58, hit his last low fast ball out of the park on Friday, September 6, 2019. Billy was born on January 31, 1961 in Huntington, West Virginia to Gary and Carolyn Sovine. He loved to cook and fed everyone he could (best barbecue ever). He loved camping (Pocahontas State Park held a special place in his heart), hunting, fishing, traveling, and fast pitch softball where he coached and mentored many young people. He retired from Dominion Energy after 35 years and was a member of IBEW Local 50.

He is survived by his wife of 26 years Chris Sovine; daughter, Kacey Flowers (Paul); 2 grandchildren, Justin and Lauren Flowers; his mom and dad; his sister, Leslie Turney (Dan); his brothers, David and Jonathan and many beloved nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

The family will celebrate Billy’s life on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 4pm to 9pm at the home of longtime friends Todd and Kristal Joyner, 308 Thornhill Road, Chester, VA 23836.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Billy Sovine TDHS Memorial Scholarship Fund (set up at Fidelity), 314 Mae Lane, Wake, VA 23176. Donations to this scholarship may be made at the Memorial Service, or mailed to the above address.

The family would like to thank everyone who assisted in his care, visited and helped us make his last week special. Thank you to the Bottoms family for opening their home to us during Billy’s last days. Faulkner Funeral Homes, Foster-Faulkner Chapel, Mathews, VA assisted the family.
