I only knew Wes through work at Royal Technologies, but I still consider him a good friend. Wes spent many hundreds - even thousands - of hours developing the products and the processes that transformed Royal from a plastic molder into the technology-driven product manufacturer it is today. Working with Wes was a pleasure for me. I often brought projects to him with an idea of how I wanted it to be accomplished and he immediately came up with 2 or 3 other ways to get it done or make it better. His mind was always working that way, and he could do amazing things with MDF tabletops and some Bondo. Wes had a level of dedication that was second to none, coming in early and staying late seemed to be the normal operating mode. I will miss his positive attitude and the laughs we could share even when working hard to meet a deadline or in a stressful situation. There will never be another Wes and I'm glad I got the chance to know and work with him.

Wes and I worked together at Prince Corp. for many years (I believe we played on a Prince basketball team together too!). We always had fun and he treated us so kindly. I remember many conversations at church too. Certainly was choked up when I heard about his death. Family, Sue and I express our deepest sympathy. Dave and Sue
