Billy Fuccillo opened his first car dealership back in 1989. This is what many have done throughout the years. He became one of the best car salesman and also became kind of an icon.

What made Billy’s job spectacular was that he was truly gifted in the car dealership business. His one-man dealership suddenly became something of an empire, as many have said.

Later on, he came out with one of a kind catchphrase which was “it’s going to be HUUUUUUUUUUUGE.” He became best known for this catchphrase.

Later on, something odd started to happen. His absent felt back in 2019, when he unexpectedly stopped responding to his messages and after that he stopped to appear in ads and commercials.

But this wasn’t his first time he was absent. Back in, again the question of “ what happened to billy” spread throughout the public.

He finally reacted to the questions in an interview: “I must have had a million people come up to me and say, ‘Billy, are you OK? Are you feeling all right?”

      Dear Tjc, as it is mentioned above, nothing more has been shared by his family and friend. All we know is that Mr. Fuccillo’s health had declined over the past year.

    When Billy was able to trade us out of a horribly dangerous defective car we tried to help his health! While he’d steadily decline each time we were at dealerships and auditioning as new spokesmodel,
    I’d relayed sincere concerns. He was such a hard worker and needed to put his health as a priority!
    It broke our hearts being from upstate NY, knowing his family’s dedication of helping many people!
    If we could’ve ever been given a chance of providing integrative items in a faster way, it would have
    made a huge difference with his outcome. Overlooking well-being with stress and pressure he’d put
    himself under eventually took its toll on his immune system. God bless his family’s grief at this time.

      Dear Kelly,
