  2. Wes was a wonderful neighbour. Always friendly and always happy to have a chat on the bench in the front yard. He loved our dog Trixie and was always kind and gentle with her. It was a mutual friendship as she loved going over to see him and sit with him. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

    Our Condolences, The Rice Family

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Wes’ immediate and extended families. Wes always had a smile and an easy laugh that made us feel at home. He was one of those people who really did have a “twinkle” in his eye. We think it’s because of his wonder family and their love. He will be missed.

    With Love, Keith, Doris, Kyle and Steven Walker.
