  He was born on Oct. 2, 1952 in Fort Worth, TX to David and Pauline West. In the late 1960s, he moved to Superior, AZ with his family. In high school he worked for Save Money Market as a butcher. He was very proud of this job and talked about it often. He graduated high school in 1972 from Superior High School.

  After graduation he went to work for Kennecott (Asarco) where he would eventually become an electrician through an apprenticeship. Bob worked for Asarco until he retired in 2010. Bob loved his coworkers and talked about them often. He enjoyed camping, fishing, target shooting, and collecting knives.
