Passing of Dr Billy Gallagher, Life Honorary President of Worldchefs

It is with great sorrow that we learn the news of Dr. Billy Gallagher, Worldchefs Honorary President passing today. Our deepest condolences, blessings and prayers are sent to Billy’s wife Linda, sons Mark, Ian and their families.

It is not possible to measure the impact Billy had all over the world, with young chefs, cooks, executive chefs and the hospitality field as a whole. I am sending prayers as I know there are so many of you out there that Billy has touched. Billy’s generosity, wisdom, willingness to share, talent at pulling people together, keeping peace, and supernatural way of mentoring is truly legendary and will be remembered by us all.

His work with the World Association of Chefs Society was constant and always had the best interest for ALL chefs around the world. His passion was always to protect the integrity of our association and the betterment of our craft. I want you to know that Billy truly lived and worked Worldchefs almost every day.

Let us always cherish the life lessons we have learned from Billy and carry them forward as one.

We will share more information as we get it in regards to Chef Gallagher’s arrangements. Wishing you all peace.


On behalf of the World Association of Chefs Societies.

Warm Regards,

Charles M. Carroll CEC, AAC
