In Memory Of Bill West April 12, 2016
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"West Columbia.—William O. “Bill” West passed away peacefully on Friday, March 25, 2016, at the age of 76. He was born in 1939, a son of Elizabeth and Edward West in Spartanburg, S.C. Bill was a well-known face and voice in television and radio in South Carolina but his heart was always in newspaper journalism. Despite severe health problems, Bill continued to serve South Carolina journalism through a long career as editor of The Dispatch-News in Lexington and recently as columnist and senior editor at the Lexington County Chronicle. His passion for print led him to serve the South Carolina Press Association as editor of the SCPA Bulletin. Bill was honored to be named State Journalist of the Year in 2009. He was also honored for his coverage of the community by a local activist group that calls itself the Cayce Mafia, and with the Order of the Palmetto Patriot by Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer and long-time political activist Mickey Lindler. After being named S.C. Press Association Journalist of the Year, Bill’s comment was, “I wasn’t called to the pulpit, but to the press. And the past 50 years I have been very blessed by people, my writing and my God.” Bill is survived by his wife Anne Foster West; four children and their spouses, Suzanne Davidson and Joe, Fred West and Michelle, Joe West and Elizabeth, and Billy West; six grandchildren, Bryce Davidson, Alex Davidson, Connor Davidson, Foster West, Grace Anne West and Joseph West, and a brother, Eddie West. Services will be at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 10, 2016, at Holland Avenue Baptist Church, 12th Street in Cayce. The Rev. Dow Welsh, The Rev. Charles Wilson and Dr. Bill Davidson will officiate. The family will receive friends immediately after the service. Donations in his memory may be made to the Flower Ministry at Holland Avenue Baptist Church."
