BILLY COSTELLO PASSES

Billy Costello, a Kingston resident and a former World Boxing Council junior welterweight champion, died on Wednesday morning at Benedictine Hospital at the age of 55.

 Costello had been fighting lung cancer since April 2010. 

“Billy took it like a champ, right from the beginning,” said friend and former trainer Lou Fusco. “He never gave up. He never complained.”

As a professional, Costello won 40 of his 42 fights, with many of them coming in front of sell-out crowds at Kingston’s Midtown Neighborhood Center
