I don't believe Wess ever missed a class reunion.  He and Jennie made dancing look so easy and it was a joy to watch them .  He has joined Jennie to dance once again.  Rest in peace fellow classmate.

Wes and I go back to elementary school and playing on the swings at his grandmothers house. The girls would always want to dance with him and Al Andreoli, those were the best days. RIP dear friend.

I remember Wes as a extremely nice person.  We were team mates on the High School Football Team.  Boy could he dance.  The ladies really enjoyed his company, especially at the Friday night dances...the guys were jealous...Rest in Peace buddy.  Condolences to the family...

I remember Wes well from being home room buddies for three years.  It was his wonderful smile and mischieveous eyes that I remember most, as well as his great dancing.  My sympathies to the family at this sad time of loss.  May the memories of love give you great comfort.

Go back to Lincoln Jr. High with Wes hadn't seen him for a while when he and Jennie stopped by our place in Florida on their way to visit his son. He was a great guy. Rest in peace my friend.
