Donald West

January 22, 1976 — September 18, 2019

On Wednesday, September 18, 2019, family, friends and the mountain bike community felt a tremendous loss with the passing of Don West.

Donald Marcus West was born January 22, 1976 to Mary Louise Nicholson and Danny Hugh West in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Don was the proud owner of Wasatch Trails Company and was passionate about designing and building the trails we all love to ride. If you ever rode a Don West trail, chances are you had a smile on your face.

He was a true outdoorsman who was happiest surrounded by nature. Mountain biking, road biking, climbing, backcountry skiing, fishing, kayaking and camping with family and friends was how Don preferred to spend his time. He was adventurous and found pleasure in exploring, camping and biking with his wife in the desert and mountains of Utah.

He was extremely intelligent, kind hearted, free spirited and loved to tease. Above all else, Don was genuine.

Don moved from Arkansas to Utah in 2011 where he met his wife Jenny Mitton West, married September 14, 2013 in Big Cottonwood Canyon. He is survived by his wife, Jenny, her two children Canyon and Sage and his daughter Megan. He is also survived by his mother Mary (Bob), father Danny (Carolyn), brother Adam, and sister Jacque and many other family members and close friends. Don was preceded in death by his sister, Regina Diane Nicholson.

A celebration of life open house will be held Sunday, September 29, 2019 from Noon-3pm. Bring your best Don West story.
