Edward C. Westfall, Jr., 83, of Spencer, passed away June 9, 2021 at Camden Clark Hospital in
Parkersburg following a short illness.

He was born in Lockney, WV to Edward C. and Wilma L. Dotson Westfall on October 30, 1937.

He was proceeded in death by his parents, his wife Doris Westfall and an infant sister, Barbara Ann.
He was a graduate of Spencer High School with the class of 1956 and later graduated from WVU with
a degree in secondary education. He had a long career in education as a science teacher and as a high
school principal. He was the principal of Spencer High School for 26 years and became the first principal
of the newly consolidated Roane County High School until his retirement in 1997.

He was a conversationalist and enjoyed discussing nearly any topic. He was an artist, creating
amazing wood sculptures. He was a farmer who spent his younger years raising polled Hereford cattle
with his family. He was a traveler, having enjoyed trips to Europe and various locations in the states. He
was a genealogist and had recently finished writing an extensive history of the Westfall family. He was a
breeder of Bouvier des Flanders dogs and sold puppies to people all over the US. His intellect, wit and
work ethic were his hallmarks. He touched the lives of so many people and will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife, Carol Board-Westfall, his daughter Jayne Ann Hanstine and her husband
Tom of Spencer, and his son Jay Westfall of Wilmington NC. He is survived by his granddaughters
LeeAnn Bennett, Katelyn Daniel and her husband Jason all of Spencer, and Alex Moran and her husband
Joe of Weston. He was very proud of his great grandchildren Owen and Audrey Debar, Olivia and Harper
Moran all of Weston. He is also survived by his sister Sandra Tupes and her husband Charlie of Charlotte
NC, his brothers Bernard Westfall and his wife Marion of Morgantown, and James Westfall and his wife
Candace of Spencer, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Per his request, his body was cremated and there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, the family
suggests donations to the Roane County Scholarship Foundation, Inc, 804 Summit Street, Spencer, WV 25276 or to the Roane County Animal
Shelter in his memory.

Debbie and I would like to offer our sincere condolences on the passing of Mr. Westfall (I don't think I could ever call him anything else). As my Principal at Spencer High School from my hiring in 1972 until leaving for Maryland in 1977 he was a leader and friend. He encouraged me as a teacher and followed me as a wrestling coach practically everywhere we went. He was the epitome of a principal who made everyone feel important. He even took the time to attend a Wrestling Hall of Fame induction 35 years after me leaving Roane Co,---how many ex-principals do that? Rest in peace Mr. Westfall and know the impact you had on a young teacher/coach in 1972. Tom and Debbie Woods
