So sorry to hear about Billy's passing. He was a wonderful person to all who knew him and he supported his family as much as anyone I'd ever seen. Although an NCSU grad, Billy was a devoted fan of all of The Citade's sports team, especially baseball in support of his legendary father, Chal Port. He was always happy and his laugh was infectious. He treated me as family due to my involvement at The Citadel and knew I had

I was saddened to hear that Billy Port passed. I played football with him in the fall of 1971 and 1972 as a center for the St. Andrews Rocks. Billy was one of the star athletes on the team. He was a talented running back, but more importantly he was a kind and happy person. It was a pleasure to know him.

I had the privilege of being a teammate of Billy's on a very special baseball team in 1972. One of the reasons it was special was because Billy was part of it. Two things I will always remember about Billy- his hearty laugh and his hard-nosed competitiveness. My condolences to his family.

Billy was quite simply " a really good guy." I was fortunate to have played baseball against him and with him. Having him as a teammate resulted in a much more enjoyable outcome than when he was an opponent. Billy was an extremely gifted athlete and fierce competitor. There was a time when I thought I had the unique ability to make Billy laugh. I quickly learned everyone had that same ability. I will always remember his hearty laugh and
