Chuck West and I go back many years, as we were on the same election cycle and experienced many campaigns together. He was honest, forthright and someone you could trust.
During his lifetime, Chuck served as a paramedic, teacher, counselor, deputy coroner and Kane County Coroner. Chuck was dedicated to his family, the coroner’s office and helping the less fortunate in society. He also had compassion for the survivors of decedents in death investigations.
With the passing of Chuck West, we lost a trustworthy public official who will be missed, not only by his family and friends, but also by the citizens of Kane County. Now that his long ordeal is over, may Chuck West rest in peace.
