Frank W. "Billy" Hulse, IV, age 65, and a native of Birmingham, died at his home in Atlanta on Friday, September 21, 2012. He is survived by his wife, Betty, his sister, Bonnie Hulse (Chris) Krebs of Birmingham, his niece, Cobby (John) Witherington of Fairhope, AL, and his nephew Frank (Michelle) Young of Mill Valley, CA. Billy received his education at the University of Virginia and Harvard Business School, and then moved to Atlanta where he became president of Hangar One, an aviation sales company founded by his father. When the company was sold to Beech Aviation in 1983, he became a founding partner in River Capital, a private investment firm. Billy was also very active in the Young President's Organization for many years and served as it's international president. He was a generous and enthusiastic fundraiser for several charitable organizations, most recently, the Shepherd Center Foundation. Billy was passionate about life and lived it with gusto. A man of many interests, he was a pilot, world traveler, fly-fisherman, golfer, and jazz fan, but his most cherished moments were spent simply in the company of his wife and friends. A celebration of his life will be held at the Piedmont Driving Club in Atlanta on Tuesday, September 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory can be made to the Betty and Billy Hulse Spinal Chord Injury Lab, Shepherd Center Foundation, 2020 Peachtree Road, Atlanta, GA., 30309.
