So sad to hear that uncle Wes has passed. I so miss all of the good times when my father Raymond, (the brother to Wes), was alive. The Bressler clan was the fun side of the family. Laughter and lots of talk. Hugs to the family!

Jim has known Wes forever - worked at Byron Nuke plant together and rode together to work for years. I met Wes and Joanne in 1985, the same year I met Jim. Instant friends! What a great couple. We have enjoyed Wes immensely and admired his attitude and friendliness every time we saw him. Best guy in the world. He will be missed by many - family and friends.

Ron & I met Mr. & Mrs B. when we became good friends with Mark in high school. The Bressler family was like Leave it to Beaver show on TV at that time. We loved hanging out with this family. Mr. B. was a sweet, kind, sole that I ever met in parents. He lived a good life, and loved his family. He will be missed, but never forgotten. 💙

Mr. Bressler was one of the good ones. A good neighbor for literally my entire childhood. Condolences to the entire family. Sending prayers.

I will greatly miss Wes, his love for life and his great booming laugh. I feel fortunate to have known Wes when I was a little girl and then as a grown woman. He always made me feel special and loved. I also know that Wes loved my dad and I have no doubt that the two of them are sharing some laughs and probably more than a few drinks up in heaven. Rest in peace, Wes.

The first time I met Wes was when I was cutting a tree down in Kim's front yard and this white haired man kept peeping around the corner.He looked then went to another corner and looked. Finally he says you might want to stop doing that she will expect that all the time. When Kim came home she asked how it went, I said fine but your nosey neighbor kept watching me.I told her what he said, then she tells me that was her dad. ( After all those years I looked back and realized how right that white haired man was.) Loved him as he was my own dad. R.I.P. WES.
