Wesley was born on December 5, 1958 and raised in Swift Current. He enjoyed playing hockey and also church activities at his home church, Zion Mennonite Church. He attended school at Swift Current and at the age of 17, Wes found his lifelong job with the Department of Highways where he started on the paint crew. Years later, he attended SIAST to become a heavy equipment mechanic and finished his career as a very dedicated journeyman mechanic. Wes took pride in his work and whenever anyone had car issues, Wes was quick to help.
Wesley and MaryAnn's journey in life together began in January 1977 when they met in Swift Current. They fell in love and got married on November 24, 1979 in Kindersley. Wes and MaryAnn shared many adventures together, such as motorcycling and getting stuck in a snow storm on the way to pick up their wedding rings. Wes and MaryAnn moved to Rosetown in the winter of 1988, making the Rosetown Alliance Church their home church. Their marriage was blessed with four beautiful children and later, six beautiful grandchildren. Wes was a very involved, loving, caring grandpa. Each of his grandchildren held a special place in his heart.
Wes gave his life to Christ Jesus in 1982 and was baptized at East Side Church of God which began his new life passion of serving the Lord. He allowed God to mould him into the caring, loving, giving, supportive man we all came to know and love. He ministered with MaryAnn for years as youth leaders and Bible quizzing leaders. His numerous ministries in the church included handyman, sound guy, usher, elder and youth minister - he loved to serve in any way he could. He loved working with the youth. He thought of them as his own children and they loved him in return.
Wes was diagnosed with stage four cancer shortly after he retired. He put on the armour of Christ and fought the cancer; he was always smiling even when he was in pain, God was his anchor, his peace and strength. Wes surpassed the prognosis of survival. It was truly a miracle he endured for four years making the best of it, never complaining and keeping his faith in God in who he rested and took refuge. Ignoring his own illness, he always was concerned with how other people were doing. He made an impact on all those who knew him. He will forever be remembered for his unconditional love, good heart and his infectious smile that everyone knew and loved. Wes was, and is an inspiration to all. We can imagine the words of Jesus as he met Wes were, "Well done my good and faithful servant, Welcome home.”
The family would like to thank the numerous family, friends, medical staff and Alliance Church family for their love, support and prayers for Wesley and his family along their journey. Your kindness is appreciated and will never be forgotten.
The Funeral Service was held on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at the Rosetown Alliance Church with Pastors Tim Cadieux and Dan Easu officiating.
