Darvil Lavern West from North Pole, Alaska passed away peacefully in Gilbert, Arizona on November 25, 2018. Ever the outdoorsman, Darvil loved to hunt, fish, or just take off on his snowmobile or airboat; anything adventurous, he wanted in on it. He worked hard and played hard. Darvil worked on the Alaskan Pipeline and the ice roads; any job that didn’t restrict him to a desk in an office, he gladly took on. He lived life on his own terms, always.
Darvil is predeceased by his father, Norman L. West. He is survived by his mother, Evelyn West; sisters, Norma King and Janis Wilkins; brothers, Royce, Wade, and Nolan West; children, Sundee Burney, Tiffani Kinghorn-Clayton, Ryan West, and Jason West; 10 grandchildren; and 3 great-grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held on Thursday, November 29, 2018 at 11:00am at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – Voyager Ward, 1005 North Voyager Drive, Gilbert, Arizona. A viewing will be held prior to the services at 10:00am. Burial will be at the Lakeside Cemetery, 1265 Larson Road, Lakeside, Arizona 85929, on Friday November 30, 2018 at 12:00pm.
