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 has the following siblings :
Kenneth Anthony
1910 - 1910
Leora Eulalia (Johnson)
1913 - 1998
Ernest Cecil
1915 - 1990
Claude Ernest
1918 - 1995
Reese Humble
1920 - 2008
Olive Mehitable (Smith)
1922 - 2010

There are 2 of his siblings that remain of the family.

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
