Helen and Jerome West
On his birthday, May 17, 2021, Jerome F. West, 98, passed away and joined
the love of his life, Helen R. (Hacey) West, who passed away December 23, 2020,
at age 95. Married for 75 years, they began their lives together following his
service with the U.S. Coast Guard during World War II. Jerome started Facilamatic
Instrument Corp. in Valley Stream, NY, and became a successful businessman.
Jerry, an avid reader, researched everything. Mechanical, medical and statistical,
he had a mind that could absorb it all and was always willing to help complete the
project at hand. Adventurous, he loved life, Helen, his family, work, and of course,
if you knew him, his Hatteras. Helen was a homemaker who loved her family,
neighbors, visiting casinos with her friends, and always taking care of Jerry.
Together, they enjoyed designing, building, and spending time at their second
home in Vermont, traveling the world, skiing, boating, playing cards, golfing, and
spending time with their many treasured friends and family. They were both smart,
kind, considerate and generous people. They are survived by their three children,
Jerilyn Miltenberger, Dennis (Linda) West, Alison (Robert) Coll, 7 Grandchildren,
10 Great-Grandchildren, and 4 Nieces. They will share their final resting place
at Long Island National Cemetery, Farmingdale, NY.
Two angels in Heaven together, missed more than words can express.
Rest in Peace. With Love and Fond Memories
