Edwin “Grey” Wicker ’04

It is with heavy hearts, and deep sadness, that we announce the passing of Attorney Edwin “Grey” Wicker.

Grey passed away suddenly as a result of a cardiac event on Wednesday, May 10th.

Professionally, Grey served as a law clerk to the Honorable Roger L. Couch in the Seventh Judicial Circuit for one year before going into practice with Mike Spears of Michael E. Spears, PA, in 2008. Grey joined Parham, Smith & Archenhold’s Spartanburg Office in 2017.

While practicing many facets of the law, Grey focused his efforts on pursuing the legal rights of his clients in civil, medical malpractice, class action and trucking accident litigation. Grey committed his career to protecting his clients’ interests while zealously representing them and counseling them through the difficult litigation process. Grey received an “AV” rating as a Preeminent Lawyer by Martindale Hubbell.

A Spartanburg native, Grey received a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics with a minor in Music from Davidson College before receiving his Juris Doctor, Magna Cum Laude, from The Charleston School of Law in 2007. During his tenure at the Charleston School of Law, Grey served as the Quality Control Editor of the Maritime Law Bulletin. Additionally, Grey served as the Chairman of the school’s Honor Counsel for two years and on the Judiciary Committee, tasked with writing the school’s honor code.

While achieving great success in his legal career, Grey also contributed to his community in many ways. Grey was Chairman of the Board of Directors for Mobile Meals of Spartanburg County beginning in June, 2015. He was also Founder and Director of Public Relations for The Hub City Hog Fest, a charity BBQ competition in downtown Spartanburg, established as a benefit for Mobile Meals of Spartanburg County and raised over $200,000.00 for Mobile Meals in its first four years.

While we could continue with Grey’s accolades and achievements, we know that his greatest legacy is his family. Grey could not have been more proud of his beautiful wife, Amanda, and their two young children.

The void that Grey has left in all of our lives is a true testament to how he lived.
