Sawyer Joseph WEST
March 4, 1991 – November 19, 2020
Sawyer Joseph West was born on March 4, 1991 in Bellevue Washington to parents Carol Crane and David West. He was the second of four children and spent his youth living in Bothell and Snohomish, WA. Growing up Sawyer enjoyed playing soccer, football, guitar, video games and skateboarding and as an adult Sawyer has continued his love for music and skateboarding, in addition to hiking, gardening, and boating. Though Sawyer struggled with a severe mental illness, he still managed to shower this world with love, patience, kindness, joy, generosity, and wisdom. Sawyer loved Jesus more then anything and made sure to radiate that love to the people around him. On October 16, 2020 Sawyer succumbed to his illness and is now rejoicing in peace and health in the arms of Jesus. He is survived and greatly missed by his parents Carol Crane (mom) and Dave (dad) & Terri (step-mom) West, his siblings Ashleigh Cruze, Paisley West, Siobhan West, and his niece Isra and nephew Corbin.
Sawyer, we will carry you in our hearts for the rest of our days and honor your life by loving others the way you have loved us. Thank you for teaching us to choose kindness, love, and joy. Rejoice in paradise; you are free, our sweet boy.
