Born May 8, 1948 to Robert and Nadine (Walker) West, Bill loved Christmas and all the family traditions that came with it. He enjoyed carrying on those traditions with his two daughters Katrina and Vanessa and his two grandchildren Stuart and Meg who called him “Daddy Bill” just as he had called his maternal grandfather. He was a passionate fan of Kentucky Wildcat basketball and football. He was a history enthusiast, especially in the area of politics. Bill saw voting as a privilege and a duty. He never missed an opportunity to cast his ballot. He graduated from Henderson City High School, attended the University of Kentucky, and was a member of Henderson Moose Lodge #732. He previously owned and operated Vide-O-Ville in Madisonville, Ky. Bill was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Nadine West, one brother Tim West, maternal grandparents William “Daddy Bill” and Nora “Mother Walker” Walker and paternal grandparents James W. and Verbel Gibson West.
