Willard (Billy) Duncan Obituary

The Bamberg County Council and Bamberg County Administration Office sadly announces the passing of Mr. Willard "Billy" H. Duncan, former Bamberg County Coroner. Mr. Duncan entered into eternal rest on Monday, January 17, 2022 at the Regional Medical Center, Orangeburg, SC.


The owner and president of Carroll’s Mortuary in Bamberg, “Billy” as he was commonly known, was at the forefront of handling services for thousands of Bamberg County families over many decades. As the business grew and prospered, Willard "Billy" Duncan decided to enter public service and launched a campaign for Bamberg County Coroner. A trailblazer, he was the first African American elected to a countywide office in Bamberg County in November 1988. He had so much compassion and sensitivity for helping countless families navigate through some of the most difficult times of their lives. Coroner Duncan served with diligence until his retirement in 2021. His staff will greatly miss him, and so will the citizens of Bamberg County.
