I was very saddened to hear about Wes – my prayers go out to his family. Wes was my best friend for many years. Wes, you've taught me more about fishing and life than you could have ever known – a memory that will last me forever. Go speed my friend…I hope to see you some day at the eternal lake. Contact me

I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Wesley. Throughout our high school years we were the best of friends, practically inseparable. He was not only the greatest of all friends he was also best man at my wedding. I have so many fond memories of those years I will continue to cherish each and every one of them for the rest of my life.
My sincere condolences to all of Wesley's' family and friends

Wes was an awesome man in so many ways. He worked with me at my shop for over 25 years and in those many years he always acted with dignity and professionalism in an industry that doesn't always make that easy to do. I know he is in a better place now, fishing no doubt in heaven! He will be missed by many more people than you know and he will be remembered by each of them. Thank you Wes for sharing your life with us. God Bless you and your Family.
