Billy Mahaney was taken by God suddenly, on April 8th 2013.   Billy's cause of death was related directly to a totally undetectable heart condition (Hypoplasia of the right coronary artery) or HCAD.   While this tragic event stunned many fellow students, counselors, teachers, and friends in the local area, it also caused a surprising response as well.   While Billy's personality was very quiet, and reserved as noted by anyone who knew him.  However following his death, many students at Yorkville High School, and several teachers came forward and related how Billy had been working with various friends, and students; tutoring, assisting, and helping them during study (Access) periods, after school at the library, and on-line.  He also befriended several others, who otherwise where disengaged in extracurricular activities at YHS, and encouraged them to join Art Club, Robotics Club, and other activities that he also enjoyed.
