A son of Crawford GA, he was born to Brantley Webster Coile, Sr and Jessie Davison Coile, on April 22, 1939.
Entrepreneur, businessman and entertainer, B W, served the community in a number of ways over his sixty year career.

For all those accomplishments, he will be most remembered for his efforts as an entertainer and master of ceremonies for the Colbert Fourth of July Celebration, the Comer Christmas parade, the Madison County Fair, and many other venues around the area. His character Roscoe PuCannon was loved by many who didn't even know his real name. In addition B W was a Country Music song writer and performer with numerous records and albums.
