Sorry to hear this news, Wesley was a classmate at SHS and was always respected and a pleasure to associate with. He was a humble and quiet person and was very sincere in whatever he undertook. Our paths did not cross very often but when we would meet it was a joyous occasion with the memories of the olden days. He will be missed by all that knew him.
