William Grady Lightsey, Jr. “Squiz”, 74, husband of Carolyn Williams Lightsey, passed away on Friday, May 29, 2020 at his home. Born in Florence on March 22, 1946, he was a son of the late Williams Grady Lightsey, Sr. and the late Cleo Ford Lightsey. He was raised and spent his life in Georgetown and he and his wife were blessed with many wonderful neighbors along the way. Mr. Lightsey and his wife were high school sweethearts that found their way back to each other later in life and he loved Carolyn dearly. Mr. Lightsey was an employee for the City of Georgetown for 34 years and a United States Navy Reserve Veteran. He loved riding and working on Harleys and fishing in his free time. He was a Christian man who loved the lord and was a member of Faith Tabernacle Church. Mr. Lightsey had a unique sense of humor and was always joking with those close to him. His quick wit and love for his friends and family will be dearly missed. Surviving in addition to his wife of 35 years are his children, Laura Jenkins (David) of Columbia, Katherine Angell (Dan) of Greer, Wanda Prince (Travis Davis) of Conway; grandchildren, Lilly Jenkins and Faulkner Jenkins of Columbia, Taylor Prince (Rebecca) of Hinesville, GA, and Kayla Prince of Georgetown; great grandchildren, KJ Prince, Jaxson Prince, Kirsten Prince, and Colby Prince; one sister Diane Parker (Billy) of Georgetown; one brother, Stephen Lightsey of Clemson; and a number of nieces and nephews.
