Tony West

Tony Alan West (2/26/1963-3/6/2011) was an amazing author, poet, and lyricist, just as he was an amazing person. He touched thousands with his warmth, was loved by all that knew him, and is dearly missed. Tony was born in Idabel, McCurtain County, Oklahoma to Ray and Hazle Murphy West. He graduated from Hugo High School in 1981 and attended Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee. He suffered a blood clot and passed away at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas. He was surrounded by family and friends when he took his last breath and never lost that amazing sense of humor everyone knew and loved.
