David Aaron West was born in Darby, Pennsylvania on December 25, 1948 to the late James E. West and Daisy A. West. He departed this earthly life on May 30, 2020.

David spent his early, teen, and young adult years in the close-knit community of Darby, Pennsylvania among his loving family and loyal friends.

He was educated in the Darby-Colwyn school system and was a celebrated athlete at Darby Colwyn High School. He loved the years he spent playing basketball and football and running track and field. After graduating from high school, he went on to attend Cheyney University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration in 1974.

After earning his degree, David went on to enjoy a long career in health care management, where he worked with several leading institutions, including Cooper Medical Center, Crozier Chester Medical Center, and Shore Memorial Medical Center, and earned a number of professional honors and awards. He retired from health care management in 2014, and quickly turned his attention to back to education. His love for education was well known by family, friends, and colleagues, and he enjoyed spending his retirement years working with Pleasantville Public Schools.

On November 23, 1974, he married Marva Neal of East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. To that union, four children were born; Denee, Elaine, Michelle, and David.

David was predeceased by his parents, James and Daisy West, his sister, Jacqueline Patterson, and his brother, Joseph West.

David leaves to cherish his memory four children – Denee West Greene (Walter), Elaine, Michelle, and David West; one brother – James West; one sister – Linda McDaniel (James); two grandchildren – Marleigh and Rhyan Greene, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Dave and I were Jogging partners when both lived in Yeadon, Pa. and I was encouraged by him on the importance of maintaining health and fitness as a life's goal.
I regret having spoken to him by phone only a few weeks or more before his passing that I didn't get to see and talk with him about old memories while taking in one of his fitness walks at the shore.
Rest in peace my Brother your in God's hands now
