Charles “Butch” Lee West, 50, of Abingdon, Va., passed away on Friday, July 9, 2021.
Charles is leaving behind a devoted wife of 24 years, Ceretia Graybeal West; son, Gabriel West; daughters, Lillianna West and Angelina West; and his faithful napping buddy, Lola Belle.
Charles felt extremely blessed to have a loving, faithful wife and beyond proud of his children. He selflessly devoted his life to caring for others as a LPN for 25 years. His eccentric personality radiated through his jewelry creations and love for collecting vintage toys, historical literature and vinyl records.
The family would like to thank all the medical staff personnel and healthcare agencies who cared for Charles during his illness. Your commitment to excellent care was appreciated.
Visitation will be 2 to 2:45 p.m., Sunday, July 11, 2021, at Brumley Gap Methodist Church. A funeral service will follow at 3 p.m., with Pastor Steve McCready and Rev. Denny Mitchell officiating. Interment will follow at Barker Family Cemetery.
Pallbearers will be Danny Rowe, Michael Yarbrough, Gabriel West, Grayson Stamper, Paul Honaker and Ed Stanley. The men of Brumley Gap Methodist Church will serve as honorary pallbearers.
