Anthony "Tony" S. West
Sept. 16, 1983-Sept. 28, 2009

On September 16, 1983, in La Porte, at 8 a.m., Patricia West was given the most precious gift of a beautiful son, Anthony Shawn West. He was present on this earth until the Lord took him home on September 28, 2009 after a life long struggle with Muscular Dystrophy. He brought joy to everyone he touched. Tony attended Rogers High School and went on to complete his GED through La Porte High School. Tony was a member of the First Church of the Nazarene, La Porte.

Surviving are his mother, Patricia West of La Porte; his father, Bart (Tiffany) Eigenmann of Knoxville, TN; his grandparents, Virginia Popplewell of La Porte, Joe West of Michigan City, Shirley Eigenmann of Venice, FL; six aunts, Ruth (Bill) Spence, Cindy (Harold) Bass, Ella (Dennis) Kalsow, Esther (Mike) Voloch, Nancy West and Kathy West; numerous cousins and friends; and his beloved pet "Peanut." He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him for his fighting spirit, sense of humor, and his appreciation for the little things in life.

Preceding in death were his grandfather, Richard Eigenmann; and two uncles, Roger and Jeff West.

A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m., Thursday, October 1, 2009 at Lakeview Funeral Home and Crematory, 247 W. Johnson Rd., La Porte, with Rev. Dan McDonald and Rev. Hugh Smith officiating.
