Obituary for David J. West

David J. West, age 65, beloved husband of Debbie Warren West, passed away Monday, January 15, 2024 in his home surrounded by his loving family. Dave was born October 21, 1958 in Bridgeport, son of the late Harry and Lillian (Pansa) West and was a lifelong area resident.


Dave was a graduate of Bunnell High School and was a retired lineman for SNET and Frontier after 30 years of service. He was a devoted New England Patriots fan who enjoyed watching the games with Debbie. He was a member of the Stratford Moose Lodge and Port 5 Auxiliary.


Dave had a kind and caring heart and was always the life of the party at family and friend gatherings. He will be remembered for his fabulous 4th of July firework extravaganzas, advice on the best places to get food (mostly Italian), the crazy Hucklebuck dance, his teasing, and great sense of fun.


In addition to his cherished wife, Debbie, his is survived by his sisters: Janet West, Carole Gabor and husband Charles; Sister-in-law Lorrie Butka and brother-in-law, Ken Warren; nieces and nephews, Alexis Weinstein, Nicholas Gabor, Erica Gabor, Rebecca Pezza, Stephen Butka, David Warren, Scott Warren and five great nieces and nephews all of whom he greatly enjoyed spending time with.


In addition to his parents, he was pre-deceased by his brother, Robert West, brother-in-law, Stephen Butka, and Debbie’s parents, Mary and Kenneth Warren.


Dave never met a stranger, so he also leaves behind many good and close friends that he enjoyed spending time with over the years.


The family would like to thank Dr. Frank, the staff of Norwalk Hospital and the staff of Norwalk’s Whittingham Cancer Center for the wonderful care they provided Dave over the past three years.


Family and friends are invited to visit with the family on Sunday, January 21, 2024, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the William R. McDonald Funeral Home, 2591 Main Street, Stratford, CT. 06615. A funeral service celebrated by Deacon Andy Dzujna will be held on Monday, January 22, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. in the funeral home. Interment will follow in St. Michael’s Cemetery.
