Graeagle has lost one of its true pioneers with the passing of Harvey West Jr. last week.

West died Tuesday, April 26, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Reno. “He is Graeagle,” said longtime friend Don Clark. “He built this community and its infrastructure with his own money. He built the streets, church, tennis court, golf course — everything that makes this town what it is today.” “It is the loss of a true pioneer and friend,” said Dick Lundy, who enjoyed a longstanding professional and personal relationship with West.
