Pastor Westover ministered at Distant Baptist Church for over 48 years and served 22 years with the United States Postal Service.

Pastor Westover loved the Lord. He was very passionate about sharing the gospel and the love of Christ with every person he encountered including total strangers. He was a humble and generous man. He was a true spiritual giant. He spent many countless hours in prayer and studying the bible. He was very involved with his ministry including counseling and visiting the sick and needy at all hours of the day when needed. His love for God was evident and in-measurable with the way he poured out his love toward his family and his church congregation. He loved spending Sunday afternoon, holidays and family events with his wife, children, and grandchildren. He had the softest belly any grandbaby could ever ask for when needing a nap.

He enjoyed reading the paper, watching the news and sports events of any kind. He enjoyed golf, hunting, and fishing. He was notorious for cracking jokes. He loved the Lord with his whole heart. Even to the end of his life when his eyes were dim and his voice but a whisper, he continued to praise God and testify the message of salvation.

He was greatly loved by his family, church, community and friends. He will be missed sincerely.

Viewing will be held at Distant Baptist Church on Friday, Jan. 31, from 2 to 9 and on Saturday, Feb. 1, from 10 to 1.

Celebration of life will be held at Distant Baptist Church on Feb. 1, 2020, at 1:00 pm with Pastor Jimmy Swogger and Pastor Bob Ryver co-officiating. Interment will be in the Oakland Cemetery in Distant.
