Billy Miller passed away at the age of 43. Sadly, the actor best known for his roles on General Hospital and The Young and the Restless passed away on September 14, just two days before turning 44.

All of us who had the good fortune to know him will never forget his contagious charm and friendliness. I’m going to miss that sly smile. Love you, Billy,” the actress Eileen Davidson said on Twitter beside a picture of the two of them.
Billy, my comrade from Texas. Every room was brightened by your grin. Michael Muhney, who plays the actor, also posted a photo and a message on Twitter.
