Earl  West


Earl West was born on February 19, 1944 and won his battle over cancer on July 19, 2019.

Earl was preceded in death by his granddaughter, Kara West; father and mother, Stanton and Annie Lou Keener-West; and brother, Arvil West.

Earl is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Ellen Fraker West. Also surviving are two sons, LaDon West and his wife, Treasa, and Chris West and his wife, Daphne. Grandchildren are LaRissa and Anthony Landowski, Kade West, Kason West, Colby Ramsey, Caleb Ramsey, Caden Ramsey, and an adopted granddaughter, Stephannie and Joel Corn. Great-grandchildren are Analissa and Asher Landowski. Also surviving are his brother and sister-in-law, Haden and Mildred West; sisters and brothers-in-law, Rachel and Larry Warren, Dorothy Lawless, Marie Grant, Doris and Wayne Wade, and Deloris Holcombe; and several nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind two beloved pets, Rosie & Scrappy.

Earl loved his family and is lovingly remembered as the one who was called no matter the time for whatever the need was. He loved his church family at Welcome Hill Baptist and serving dinner there on Wednesday nights. Earl was an avid hunter and fisherman - a trait that he passed on to his boys, his grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. His family cannot remember a time that he didn't grow a garden and raise chickens, of which he supplied the whole family with the fruits thereof. Not only did he supply them with physical fruits; he led by example in serving God during all walks of life - leading them to Him.

The family wants to extend a special Thank You to Dr. Conry, Dr. Dobelbower, Terri Sinquefield, and the entire staff at UAB Acton Road Radiation & Oncology Center. You have loved our entire family through many dark times, and we are forever grateful.
