At an early age, he joined New Hope Baptist Church.  Ed, as he was affectionately called, was a graduate of Flint River Farms High School.  After high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Army where he served his country honorably.  He later attended Fort Valley State College where he received his BS in Elementary Education.  He was employed at Robins AFB for several years.  After leaving Robins AFB, he was employed by the Macon County Board of Education as an elementary school teacher.  He retired after many years of service. 


Ed was married to the former Jeanetta Neal West.  They enjoyed many years together.  On Tuesday, January 31, 2012, Edgar West departed this earthly life for an eternal life. Sleep on Edgar and take thy rest, we love you, but God loves you best.


Left to cherish his memory: his brother and sister-in-law, Fredrick and Gwendolyn West, Jackson, Georgia; his brothers-in-law, Willie Neal, Montezuma, Georgia; and Clovis and Martha Neal, Tampa, Florida; his loving companion and “partner,” JoMaxye McKenzie, Americus, Georgia; a host of beloved nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends also survive.
