He was a tuna fisherman, and authorities say he went out on his boat, The Clover, that night with friends, jumped in and was never seen again.After an opening prayer, McIntire's sister, Kim McIntire, shared memories of her brother.
 
"We are here today to not be sad and grieve but to remember all the good about Billy," she said.
