The Fayette Tribune, Oak Hill, W.Va.



The late Jim Lively Sr., center, served as a member and president of the Fayette County Commission for 22 years. He is pictured here with fellow commissioners John Lopez, left, and the late John Witt. Lopez, still a member of the county governing body, credited Lively for helping him to get acclimated when he was first elected in 1981, and called it “an honor to be his friend.”
