John Berry West
Dec 11, 1934-Aug 17, 2014
Resident of Hayward
John Berry West passed away on Sunday in the presence of his family. He retired as a Senior Chief Petty Officer after 23 years in the Navy, and then went on to a 24 year career in civilian life as a machinist. His 13 years of retirement were spent traveling with his loving wife of 60 years touring throughout the American West. He loved driving; he loved the A's and he loved his beer. But mostly he loved his family. He served his church, Saint Joachim in Hayward for 37 years as an usher and Eucharistic minister, and aided his wife in the CCD and RCIA programs. John is survived by his wife, Thelma and six "brats", Steve West (Ellen), David West, Lucy Soltau (Jim), Jim West (Kay), Scott West (Julie) and Mary West as well as his 10 grandchildren. Rachel West, Megan Anderson, Chris and Matthew West, Michael and Rebecca Soltau, Alicia and Allen West and Christine and Grace West. A vigil will be held at Holy Angels Funeral Center, 1051 Harder Road in Hayward on Friday August 22, 2014 from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. Funeral mass will be Saturday August 23, 2014 at 10:00am at St. Anne Catholic Church, 32223 Cabello Street, Union City. Burial to follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
