My sincerest condolences.. I have only recently had the privilege of meeting and getting to know Wes's daughter, Dawn Anderson but my heart is greatly saddened for her and her family's sake. Although I didn't know him personally, my sister Donelle who is Dawn's companion, spoke very highly of Wes after meeting him last year. His daughter's kindness, generosity and loving spirit are a true testament to the man he must have been and I am sure he will be greatly missed by those who loved him most.

My deepest condolences to the family. I only knew Wes briefly, but in that short time, I found that it was a hard working, loving man who always thought of his family first. I do wish we would have more time to get to know each other better but am honored that I had the opportunity to meet him. He will be missed.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to Mary and Wes's family. Many times while at work ( jewel) we would talk about family and baseball mostly sports and the usual run of the mill banter. Wes was a special person and he will be greatly missed by the many friends he made throughout all the stores that he serviced. I can only hope that he has a Great bleacher seat in the sky to see his beloved Cardinals. Hail to King Cardinal !! Till we meet again, Your Friend, Bobby.

I knew Wes from Rolling Meadows Jewel. So sorry to hear of his death. He was a very hard worker and will be sorely missed by coke. He cared about his area, and was one of the best merchandisers coke had.

I am so sorry for you loss. Wes was such a great man that loved his family deeply. He was always such a happy and positive person that was always enjoyable to talk to and be around. He was a dedicated and hard worker and you could tell he would do anything for his family (including Pauly). He will be greatly missed. Kirk has shared countless stories growing up with your family over the years and it brings a smile to my face that Wes was someone Kirk loved like family and respected.
