BiographySometimes credited as Judith Jordan.  Judy met husband Sonny West in early 1969 on the set of a movie they did together.  Sonny West was a friend of Elvis Presley, part of his troop known as "The Memphis Mafia".  He was his bodyguard (Chief of Security) and also went into acting for a time.  He has formed his own company "Westwind Productions" which tours with the popular Moments With Elvis show made up of awesome tribute artists and Sonny sharing his memories of rock and roll's King.  Judy was pretty much new in Hollywood at the time (1969) and starting a career in movies and television, as she had just finished a three-year stint in Miami on The Jackie Gleason Show as the original "And Away We Go" Glea Girl.  She was actually the first to say that byline as Gleason had always done it himself before.  On December 28, 1970 she and Sonny West were married.  Sonny had already been living at Graceland (Elvis' place) since early 1960 and continued to live there until 1976 whenever he was in Memphis.  Judy lived there with Sonny after they got married in 1970 until they moved out.  They had a son in 1972 by the name of Bryan and in 1981 a daughter named Alana.  She was also in a movie with Joi Lansing called Bigfoot in 1970.  Sonny and Judy West (as of 2006) live in Hendersonville, Tennessee.  I was first contacted by Jim Wilson, president of Sonny's "Westwind Productions" company, on January 30, 2006 and I greatly appreciate all of the recent information he's given me on Judy and Sonny to share with all of you.
