Born in Beaumont, Texas to Eugene and Thelma West, he lived in Trinity for the past two years.  Prior to living in Trinity, he lived in Fort Worth for fifteen years having moved there from Ottawa, KS.  He was a contractor for Dillard’s where he traveled with many friends working and enjoying the different areas of the United States.  Jay loved to fish, play the guitar and spend time with family at get togethers and reunions.  But his love was his grandchildren who he adored and loved with his whole heart.    He also believed in the young doctors and nurses who he claimed knew more about the modern medicine than the older doctors and nurses.
