He was married to Mayme Worthington, September 16, 1908. To this union one daughter, Macie, was born.

He has always loved the church and has been an ardent follower of the Master. Billy loved to sing and made a great contribution to the church by use of his talent. He was always willing to help with music wherever and whenever an occasion arose.
Mr. Bare started carrying the mail in 1901, and 33 years late he retired. All of these years he carried mail from the Pleasantville post office.
