Born February 18, 1934, in Blackfoot, Idaho, he was the son of Metta West and Claude Bailey. He was raised in the Rupert-Burley area and graduated from Burley High School in 1952.
He met the love of his life, Ione Brower, in 1950 and they were married in Twin Falls on May 2, 1952. They were sealed to one another in the Logan Utah Temple on September 23, 1955. To this union were born three children: Loyd D., Christine, and Shurlyn.
Del was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he served for many years as a Boy Scout leader and in many other positions including ward missionary, family history specialist, Bishop, and in the Twin Falls temple.
