Michael West


Kemmerer resident Michael West passed away on Feb. 14, at South Lincoln Medical Center.

Michael was born July 23, 1946, in Kansas City, Missouri. He was married to Carol Haynes; they later divorced.

He married Linda Treadway on Oct. 22, 1993, in Salt Lake City.

Michael was a Vietnam veteran who made the military his career, retiring from the U.S. Air Force in 1985. He was proud of his service, loved his country and was a true patriot.

Michael is survived by his loving wife, Linda; daughters, Kimberly (Michael) FitzPatrick of Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Shannon (Joseph) Hornsey of Cedar Park, Texas; stepdaughters, Lisa Cisneros and Kathleen Treadway, both of Salt Lake City; and sister, Lillie Mitchell of Casper.

He is also survived by 10 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Family meant everything to Michael, and his pride in his children and grandchildren was surpassed only by his love for them.

A memorial service and burial with military honors will take place in Colorado Springs at a later date.
