    I will always remember Wes for his golfing lessons to help me improve my game, how he would help Patrick improve his swing. How he loved golf! Our trip to Tybee Island, the fun we had with our wonderful friends, Wes having trouble playing UNO & what color his cards were………..the memories just go on & on. He lives on in mine & Patrick’s hearts, we love you!!

    I am thinking of you. I will always remember Wes’ smile and how he always had time to talk and chat for a few minutes when I saw him. He will be missed!

    I know you already know that he was a fun loving caring guy with a beautiful smile. Every time you saw him he was smiling. He always had time to talk for a little while when ever I saw him. I remember when he worked at Price Chopper for a little bit and when I first meet you both at the United Methodist Church. He will be missed. Sending prayers and hugs to you and the family.

    He was a coach of mine when I played baseball for a summer with Larry. He took care of me many times while on trips (meals, hotel, etc.) and was such a fun coach to be around. Don’t get me wrong, he was also a good and disciplined baseball coach. He spend many hours helping us improve our game and coach the team. I am thankful to have known him. Such a good man. God Speed. Prayers for the entire family.

    I’m grateful for the influence Wes had on my life while growing up in Alma. From playing on his baseball teams to many nights sleeping over with Larry, Wes always made me feel like he cared about me and what was going on in my life. He treated me like a son rather than just some kid who hung around all the time. Thankful for his legacy in many lives and praying for the entire family.
