Bill was born on August 28, 1939, in Tuscumbia, Alabama to Hugh John and Mary Elizabeth West. He graduated from Deshler High School in 1957, in which he still enjoyed his class reunions.

Bill was a devoted Alabama football fan. He was a member of Tuscumbia Church of Christ.

His greatest joy in life was being a father to his two sons and grandfather to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, which they lovingly called him Bill.

Bill spent eleven years in the National Guard. He worked at Reynolds for twenty years and then continued working for McMackin Business Systems into his retirement.

Bill is survived by his wife, Geraldine “Gerri” West, of sixty years; two sons, Barry West (Leigh Anne) and Alan West (Tracie); four grandchildren, Brandon West (April), Hannah Siville (Cooper), Alana Wear (Austin), and Anna West; and three great-grandchildren, Brady West, Hadleigh West, and Cameron West.
