On November 22, 1974, Wes was united in marriage to Carol Kasal at the Chapel of the Bells in Las Vegas. Before retiring in 2003, he was a well-known and respected Marshall County farmer. He enjoyed spending time at the pond, going on fishing trips to Canada, golfing and playing cards. He also loved family vacations and, more recently, winter getaways to Arizona, Texas and Florida with Carol. Wes was a kind man who would do anything for anyone. He lived, he laughed and he loved.
