Tom was a student of Rich Hill High School. He was a logger at several sawmills over his career. In his later years, Tom enjoyed tinkering on his little farm. And on most mornings, you would find him at his brother Allen’s sharing a pot of coffee. His grandchildren were the light of his life.

He was also preceded in death by his parents; his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Russel and Marie Johnson; three brothers-in-law, Donald Potter, Monte Gilkey, and Frankie Johnson; one grandson, George Michael Corriston.

Tom is survived by his son, Shane West of the home; two daughters, Mandy West and Andrew Gales of St. Louis, Missouri; Brandy and John Corriston of Redfield, Kansas; three grandchildren, Tiffany and Gage Beerbower of Redfield, Kansas; Korie Moore and Astro Gales of St. Louis, Missouri; three brothers, Allen West of Rich Hill, Missouri; Bill and Sandy West of Horton, Missouri; Bob and Cindy West of Horton, Missouri; five sisters, Betty and Danny Johnson of Pittsburg, Missouri; Pauline Gilkey and Geno Marks of Olathe, Kansas; Mary West, Dollie and Dwayne Burris, and Laura Gilkey, all of Rich Hill, Missouri.

Tom will be greatly missed by family and friends.
