Grover West
CMSgt. Grover F. West, Ret, 80, of O’Fallon, IL, born Sunday, July 4, 1937 in Carrollton, GA passed away peacefully, with family by his side on Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at St. Louis University Hospital in St. Louis, MO.

Grover served honorably in the United States Air Force for 26 years and retired as a Chief Master Sergeant. While on active duty, he served tours in Japan, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, two tours with Military Airlift Command Inspector General (MAC/IG), and two tours with Headquarters Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Service (HQ-ARRS).

Grover enjoyed flying and was fascinated with airplanes, guns, and cars. He loved hunting, fishing, family, and friends, and was highly respected by all of those in which he influenced. His infectious smile and laugh were well known within the community, a community in which he loved and served dearly.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Grover M. West and Enid West Gresham, nee Pitts; two sons, David M. West, and Donald G. West.
