John E. West, 54, of Waverly passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, March 16, 2019 with his loving family by his side after a courageous battle with Pancreatic Cancer.

(Shay) West of Waverly, Cody West of Waverly; Christopher Callear of Towanda and Nicholas Tunstall of Towanda; sister, Mary (Bob) Harris of Sayre; grandchildren, Dallas, Raevyn and Ellie; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

John loved spending time with his family and his cars, working on them and building them.  His prize possession was his 1969 Camaro.  He graduated from Sayre High School in 1983 and went on to serve in the U.S. Army as a highly decorated Military Intelligence Officer.  John worked for many years at Fine Line Homes in Milan as a sales consultant.  He enjoyed camping, boating and watching his sons racing motorcycles. As John would always say “We got this.”

I am so sorry for your loss!  John and I were stationed at Fort Carson in the 80’s, and he was especially kind and gracious to me.  This was a time when I was lost and making lousy decisions, but John was always trying to talk sense into me, yet with so much gentleness and respect.  He will always hold a special place in my heart for that brief time we knew each other.  I will be praying God’s sweet care and comfort over his family and friends!
