Meet Willard A. "Billy" Silcox, Jr.
I was born in Charleston, SC, in 1943 and grew in downtown Charleston. I attended Charleston public schools and graduated from the College of Charleston with a bachelor’s degree in biology. Not only that, but I am a past president of the C of C Alumni Association and a member of the College of Charleston Athletics Hall of Fame.
After college, I served three years of active duty in the Navy. In 1966, I married Gloria Seithel, my College sweetheart, and we have been blessed with 3 children and 6 grandchildren. After my stint in the Navy, I became a tennis coach at the College of Charleston from 1969 until 1984. During that time, I was active in the College of Charleston Alumni Association, the St. Andrew’s Society of Charleston, the South Carolina Society, and the German Friendly Society.
I also served as the secretary and treasurer of the St. Andrew’s Society for 16 years and as the president in 2017 and 2018. About 17 years ago, I began volunteer coaching the varsity tennis teams at the College of Charleston, a position that I still thoroughly enjoy.
I joined C. T. Lowndes & Company in 1979 as a salesman and became an owner in 1984. Both of my sons, Bill and Chris, and my son-in-law Elliott Phillips work with me in the agency. Elliott has recently taken over my position as sales manager for the agency. I am still active in the agency and will be promoting the agency and assisting in any way I can.
I am very proud of the agency’s sales force. They are all individuals dedicated to providing the best possible coverage for their clients and are excellent representatives of C. T. Lowndes & Co., the Insurance Agency of Choice.
