Harold was born in Farlinville, Kansas on October 24, 1928 to Howard L and Beulah M (Holt) West. He went to school at Farlinville County School and then attended one year at Mound City High School. Harold was a rancher, farmer and song writer all his life. The love of farming and raising cattle was his calling.

On June 6, 1954 Harold married the love of his life, Patsy Louise Mundell at the home of her parents in Centerville, Kansas. They lived on a farm near Farlinville and farmed on Big Sugar Creek.

This was a man who could touch others with kindness, unless he was trying to get you to buy peanut brittle, then he touched you with a little more of nudge. I will remember Harold for the smile that was always about to break across his face, his poems, his peanut brittle (of course), and his gentle faith.
You know, peanut brittle fit him well, very sweet and just a little nutty.
My condolences. I know he will be missed by many.
