I just found this information today. I remember Wes when I was a little boy visiting my Grandma and Granddad in Maryland. My whole family would drive from Birmingham Alabama. I remember us going into the basement of their home and playing games, watching the old Batman TV show, and eating cantaloupe. Few memories since I was so little. But I remember him just the same. I also remember going to Hersey Park and holding that huge Cholate bar. I am so sorry for your loss, and never getting the opportunity to meet the fine man I am sure he became.

His Cousin,

Gene Jr.

There is a road, no simple highway Between the dawn and the dark of night And if you go, no one may follow That path is for your steps alone. See you on the other side old friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I met Wes rite after I got out of high school. I did not like him. He seemed very cocky and forward. After seeing him around a lot I realized quickly that this was not the case. Wes had a personality like no other! You could say they broke the mold after him. I realized that Wes, truly loved life and everyone in it! He could take over a room with his charm and his style and leave you crying with laughter when he left. After spending all of my twenty's and a good part of my thirty's with Wes I realized that we were a awful lot a like. We spent lazy summers at the beach, fishing, partying, and arguing. Yes! Arguing. As much fun as Wes and I had we also liked to argue! Who caught the bigger fish, who dated the hotter girl, who drank the most, and always who made the bigger a** of themselves the night before. Wes live life in moment. Taking advantage of every opportunity to make someone smile, laugh, and to even lighten up an not take things so serious. I use to think I p*ssed my twenties and half of my thirties away and how I could of done them different. But in reality when Wes and I hung out, I can honestly say we had lived like there was no tomorrow and I wouldn't change it for the world!!! Wes will surely be missed. My family and I send our deepest regrets.

I remember Wes always smiling and joking in school. He also made working a summer at the Harbor House a little more enjoyable. I am very sorry for your loss.

To put Wes in a few words is nearly impossible. I met him about 10 years ago and we started fighting at the start! (usually joking) He always had a hunger for life and was happy to enjoy each day even if it was just sitting around bleaching the counter tops (which he used to do often and it would drive us kids out of the house due to the smell) He always had a smile on his face. I would always appreciate his kind words on him telling me how much of a great mother and wife I was. When the Eagles were in the superbowl, we came home to Wes drawing a huge Eagles head on the wall, colored and everything! I was so mad at him but he did a pretty good job! I dont know if I would have been so mad if we had won the game! But that is how he was... spontaneous, happy, and always trying to do something for someone. He will be truly missed. He was a great guy.

We met when we were about 8 years old. From the minute we met we became friends. We remained friends through high school where we graduated together. I have so many memories of you. You always made me laugh and liked to impress me with your muscles. I can see it like it was yesterday. I acted like I wasn't impressed but truth be told, I was. When you were in the hospital I came and sat with you. We talked forever. I hated seeing you in there. We lost touch for a long time but about 6 months ago we ran in to each other. It was great we hugged and talked about how great it was to see each other again. Lord knows I never dreamed it would be the last time we would ever see each other. Wes, my friend my heart hurts and I will truly miss you forever. Until we meet again.
