Lumpkin Jr., William Wallace "Bill" - Covington  
William Wallace "Bill Lumpkin Jr. COVINGTON, Va. - William Wallace "Bill) Lumpkin, Jr., 78, of 3501 Longdale Furnace Road, Clifton Forge and Covington, VA, peacefully passed away on May 14, 2015, after a long and courageous battle with several life-threatening conditions. He was born March 5, 1937, in Charleston, S.C., a son of the late Reverend William Wallace Lumpkin, Sr., and Louise Dallas Hirst Lumpkin. At the age of fifteen, Lumpkin started his lifelong career in journalism. While in high school in Rock Hill, S.C., he was a feature writer, columnist, and finally sports editor of the Rock Hill High School "Bearcat" newspaper. After high school, he attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia, S.C., where he served on the USC "Gamecock" newspaper staff for four years. Upon graduating with a degree in journalism in 1960, Lumpkin heard that the Covington "Virginian" had just lost two reporters. He applied for a position, and thus began Lumpkin's four decades of chronicling the news of the Alleghany Highlands. Lumpkin said that he never moved on to a larger newspaper because he became accustomed to Covington's small-town atmosphere; he embraced the people of the Highlands, and increasingly they embraced the articulate, kindly South Carolinian. Just before his retirement, Lumpkin was recognized by the Covington City Council for his coverage of its meetings. Similarly, the Covington VFW Post presented him a plaque in appreciation for his coverage of its banquets and community activitieshe was in fact a fixture at the meetings and banquets of many local civic organizations, and was known for reporting accurately, but also with great understanding of the good intentions of all. As Mike Wolfe, publicity chairman for the Covington branch of the NAACP said of him, "In all the years he came to our meetings, he did it more out of love than just reporting a story.Bill always tried to get all the details that he could, and he always tried to say nice things about people in his stories.[His writing] just shows what kind of person Bill is." In addition to his journalism career, Lumpkin was an artist, a photographer, a historian, a voracious reader, a fisherman, and sports fan especially for his Carolina Gamecocks and the Washington Redskins. Mr. Lumpkin's survivors include seven brothers and sisters: Dallas Lumpkin Garbee and her husband Richard Garbee of Columbia, S.C.; Dr. Arthur Lumpkin and his wife Karen Taylor Lumpkin of Columbia, S.C.; Dr. Alexander Lumpkin and his wife Dr. Janice Park Lumpkin of Chicago, IL; Anne Lumpkin Beach and her husband Robert Beach of Raleigh, N.C.; Elisabeth Lumpkin Gregory and her husband John Gregory of Columbia, S.C.; the Reverend Michael Lumpkin and his wife Ellen Bennett Lumpkin of Summerville, S.C.; and Julia Lumpkin Kana and her husband Dr. Tim Kana of Columbia, S.C. Lumpkin is further survived by 21 nieces and nephews, and many great-nieces and great-nephews. And finally, he is survived by his beloved companion, Faye Watts of Covington and Richmond, VA. Funeral service will be held on Friday, May 22, at 11:00 a.m. at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Covington, Virginia, with the Reverend Michael Lumpkin officiating and celebrating Holy Communion. There will be a reception in the Emmanuel Church parish hall after the service. Interment at Trinity Episcopal Church, Edisto Island, S.C., will be at a later date. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be sent to Emmanuel Episcopal Church, P.O. Box 709, Covington, VA 24426; The Salvation Army, 115 Lexington Avenue, Covington, VA 24426; or The American Heart Association, Memorial Chairman, 2212 Dressler Drive, Covington, VA 24426.
