Michael West Obituary

Michael N. West, 53, of Morrisville, VT,  passed away unexpectedly from a long battle with health issues, with family by his side, 2 weeks after finally coming home to his family after being at the Granville Center in Granville, NY for over 2 years, where he gave it all he had to regain his strength and ability to walk due to medical problems.

Those who knew Michael would describe him as a big teddy bear with a heart of gold.  He was a devoted husband, father, brother and uncle and friend to whom everyone turned to for advice.

He enjoyed fishing, hunting, cooking and making his special BBQ sauce, listening to music, telling jokes, and spending time with family. 

He was a hard worker and always provided for his family and was employed at many local places.  In 2006, he had to take early retirement due to an injury.

On December 20, 1997 he married Brenda L. Howard.  They were able to celebrate their 25th anniversary together. Michael and Brenda had two children together, Nicholas Norman West, and infant son Nathan William Michael West who predeceased him in 2009.  He leaves his daughter Jessica A. Peno.  He loved his children and they have many memories together.

Michael leaves behind 3 brothers Randy West (Lisa) of Hardwick, Doug West (Angel) of Morrisville, and Mark West (Robin) of Morrisville, many nieces and nephews and their children, as well as several aunts, uncles and cousins.

He leaves his father-in-law George Howard and companion Bonnie Hanson of East Hardwick, VT, sister-in-law Kimberly Thompson and her husband Rick of Hardwick, VT.

Michael was  predeceased by his parents Norman and Roberta West, and his mother-in-law Pauline Smith.
