Michael David West, age 64, went home to be with the Lord on September 9, 2018. Mike (Sluggo) was a very outgoing and funny guy who deeply loved his family and friends. He was a veteran who proudly served in the U.S. Army and the National Guard. Mike was a great husband, dad, papaw, brother, and friend who left us with a lot of great memories and stories. He will be truly missed.
Mike started attending Tender Mercies Full Gospel Ministries in Middletown, Ohio back in the spring. He really enjoyed attending church there and was happy to meet new brothers and sisters. We are grateful that he found a new church home and we are thankful they were there to embrace him before he went to his final home.
Mike was born on June 30, 1954 in Cincinnati, Ohio. He is preceded in death by his loving parents, Jason Carl West and Aileen West.
Mike is survived by his wife Diane (Harrison), daughter Sherri West, grandson Joshua West, very best friends Joe and Shirley Kunk, sister Cindy Baxter (Willie), brother Troy Hicks (Debra), sister Beverly Caldwell (Gary), brother Kenneth Harrison (Charlotte), and many nieces and nephews, as well as numerous friends.
