Jerry West, 72, of McCormick, SC, husband of Kay Babylon West, died Monday, July 12, 2021 at his residence. He was born in Elmira, NY to William Duffy and Marion Louise Finney West. For more than 20 years, Jerry was employed doing CATV line construction. His work allowed him to travel across the country experiencing life in all areas of the United States. After settling in McCormick, Jerry realized his dream and opened the antique shop, "Yesterdays Best Antiques" and later "Yesterdays Best Restoration" where he specialized in restoring cherished family heirlooms of others. It gave him great joy to see others appreciate his efforts. When Jerry was not working at his shop, he was creating his own oasis at home, landscaping his property. Jerry always said that he was in the best place he could be, and there was nowhere else he would rather be. Jerry is survived by his wife of 30 years, Kay; his children: Michael (Christine) West of Corning, NY, Victoria Lynn (Trent) Taylor of Albemarle, NC, and Shannon Lee West of NC; step-children: Laurie Anne (Chad) Patton of Apalachin, NY, Jennifer (Jeff) Stratton of Prattsburgh, NY, and Trieste Mikal Underhill of Ninety Six, SC; a brother, Jimmy (Dee) West of VA; two sisters, Joanne Estep of TX and Martha Heidrick of NY; fourteen grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a grandson, Joshua West, and a brother, Danny West. A graveside service will be held on Friday, August 13th at 2:00 PM at Hope Cemetery, 325 Park Avenue in Corning. A celebration of Jerry's life was previously held in South Carolina. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully request memorials, in memory of Jerry, be sent to the McCormick County Humane Society, P.O. Box 900, McCormick, SC 29835. Jerry's family entrusted his care to Haughey Funeral Home, Inc.
