Raymond West Obituary

Raymond Lyle West, 66, of Hazelton, BC, passed away on January 28, 2024, in Smithers, BC at home with his wife & children at his side.

Raymond was born in Hazelton, BC to Frances & Lyle West on July 27, 1957. He went to school in Hazelton till Grade 10 when he decided that was enough. That was the start of Ray’s work for many years in the family logging business. Ray learned to do many jobs and skills on the logging sites such as faller man, loader man, bucker man etc. Most recently he was a Grader Operator for Radley Contracting until his health no longer allowed. A few passions of Ray’s included hunting, fishing, and rodeo, he participated in the Bareback Riding events in his younger years and later as a spectator. Ray worked as a hunting guide in Alberta for Lee Poole for a few years and remembered his hunting family fondly from that time. Throughout the years Ray made many friends and numerous acquaintances through his adventures. He felt most at home on the mountain backroads.

Ray and Jean married in December 1983 and had just celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary. In February 1985 Ray became a dad to their daughter Deanna and then in September 1987 along came the twins Heather and Morgan and their family was complete.

Raymond is preceded in death by his mother Frances West, father Lyle West and sister Debbie West.

Raymond is survived by his wife Jean; his children Deanna (James), Heather (Cole), Morgan; siblings Brian (Marie), Cheryl, Keith (Lisa); grandchildren Emily, Cassidy, Wyatt and his nieces, nephews and extended family.
