Thomas Harold Westover is the 2nd oldest son of
William Ernest Westover and Eulalia Elzada Humble Westover.When he was born he was a sickly baby,
and used to be carried around in a pillow case.

Later in life, because he missed quite a bit
of school, because of ilnesses, he took the G.E.D.
test to graduate High School, and passed it with
flying colors.

He met his future wife Tessa Arvilla Hansen,
while working at her brothers farm in about 1934,
and they courted and were married 8 January 1936
in the Logan L.D.S. Temple.

He worked at Charter Seed Company, which was
located on the corner of Rich Lane and old Highway
91 in Blackfoot, Idaho until 1959. He then went to
work as a nurse at State Hospital South, from 1959
until his illness caused him to stop working.

He passed away from the effects of Lung Cancer
4 days short of his 55th birthday, and was laid
to rest on that birthday.

He is the father of 6 kids and at the time of
his passing in 1966, he was grandfather to 16,
and since then many grandkids and great grandkids,
as well as many great great grandkids have been born.

Note from his grandson David Metcalf :
One day when I was a baby, as I was sitting
by his side, on his bed, and he had his right
arm wrapped around my mid section, I started
to slide off the bed, and since his arm was
around me, his arm was pulled down as I slid,
during this time his bones were brittle from
the cancer, that was attacking his body, and
this motion caused a break in his elbow, which
sadly was not able to be fixed because of the
progression of the cancer.

My grandmother and mother were close by in the
kitchen, which was the room next to my grandfathers
room. they both entered the room when they heard a commotion, and saw the after effects of what happened.
They were told what had happened, and grandpa did not
say a word about the injury for about 2 weeks. With
this act of kindness and love, He saved me from sliding
to the floor.

End of note from his grandson David Metcalf
