In 1974, Bill West built the West Funeral Home in West Fargo, ND, and he later purchased the funeral home in Casselton from his father in 1979. Bill's nephew, Craig W. Olson joined the firm in 1997 upon graduating from mortuary school at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, MN. In 2004, our West Fargo facility was expanded and remodeled to better serve the community. Bill West's son, Andrew West joined the business in 2010. He also attended the University of Minnesota.
