Frank “Bo” West, Jr. was born November 19, 1932 in Camilla, GA, the son of Frank and Mattie Tillery West. A Baptist by faith, Frank was a member of Immanuel Baptist Church. Growing up, he could fix anything. Frank spent his days at Action GM and retired there as a mechanic. If anyone needed something fixed, they knew that he was the one to call. When Frank wasn’t getting his hands greasy working on a car, you better believe you could catch him holding a fishing pole. One thing is for certain, Frank loved to eat. His favorite meal was a good ole’ southern fish fry, especially if you threw in a crab claw or two.
Survivors include his children, Terry West, and his wife, Jenny, of Roanoke AL, Joey West, and his wife, Leigh, of Dalton, GA, Mike West of Bainbridge, and Jerome West, and his wife, Allison, of Cartersville, GA; his sister, Lorene Worsham; his 6 grandchildren; his 12 great-grandchildren; and his 2 great-great-grandchildren. In addition to his parents, Frank “Bo” West, Jr. was preceded in death by his wife, Margaret West; his son, Larry West; and his brothers, James West and Leroy West.
