Billy Pilgrim deceased at the age of 92; He was a WWII vet, optometrist, a doting husband and father, and a friend of extraterrestrials was found dead in a nursing home early last week. Billy died in his sleep. The doctors say that the injury he received to his head in 1968 got worse as time passed. The week before his death Pilgrim was normal until an accident smack on the head by a wooden board carried by a maintenance worker.
Billy kept shouting about wanting to go back to Planet Tralfamador and seeing his wife, Montana, one last time. His shouting fits were silenced with sedatives each time until his last one, Sunday evening.
Billy Pilgrim is the main character of Slaughterhouse-Five written by Kurt Vonnegut.
