Tragedy as Coventry dad of two with ‘heart of gold’ dies aged 24

A devastated friend has paid tribute to a Coventry man who she described as having a ‘heart of gold.’ Billy-Joe Charles Belfield tragically died at the age of just 24.

Billy, who lived in Stoke Aldermoor, died at the end of last year after ‘losing his battle with mental health,’ his friend said. He left behind two young daughters and was described as a ‘loving man with a heart of gold.’

Friend Shannon Kerbyson said Billy spent his childhood being moved around the care system and just ‘wanted to be loved.’ She said they lost touch with each other but reconnected a few years ago in a moment she described as ‘really emotional.’

Shannon, 24, told CoventryLive: “It was really emotional, then he told me that he was moving back and getting your friend back is probably one of the happiest things. He was so happy to come back, he was all excited.”

Billy was placed in Exeter and welcomed his first daughter when he turned 18. Shannon said he continued to face internal struggles which led to him being ‘in a very bad way.’

Shannon explained: “Unfortunately, his struggles were still very much ongoing. He had a lot of stuff going on in his head and his life so it was a very hard time for him and he was in a very bad way.”

Billy wanted to rebuild his life and decided to move to Coventry. “He was doing well, he was getting himself together, he was working,” she said.
