Donnie West, of Oliver Springs

May 29, 1958 — September 17, 2023

 

Donnie Junior West, 65, of Morgan County found peace with the Lord on September 17, 2023.  He battled Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) for years, succumbing to it surrounded by family.

Donnie along with 6 brothers and 4 sisters was raised by a strong and independent mother.  His family was dear to him, and it showed in his loyalty to them.  Donnie, his brothers, and nephew picked Bluegrass music together in the West Brothers band.  They played at festivals and enjoyed picking together at family gatherings.  Donnie’s specialty was the stand-up bass and harmonica.  He was known for his smiling eyes and comical humor.  He enjoyed making people laugh.

He is preceded in death by his mother Anna Laura West; father Jessie Lloyd West; brothers Randell and Robert West; brother-in-law Jerry Gouge; nieces Vanessa Gouge and Shelena Gouge-Baker; sisters-in-law Janie West and Connie McCarter; cousins Roseanne Davis, Lena Bunch, Steven McPeters.
