  13. We loved and miss Wesley here at Walmart! He was such fun to work with we always had a good time singing and cutting up in paper and chemicals! Working with Wes always made the night go by faster! I occasionally would hide a plastic snake 🐍 in his chemical pallet to hear him scream! It was hilarious! He helped me out on many occasions! I will always think fondly of him! Love you Wesley!❀️❀️❀️

  14. So sorry for your loss. Have known Wes for several years. Was always a very likable young man. Remember him in our nephews wedding and doing family events at East Barren. We would always see that he got fed any time we had family get togethers at the fire dept. We would fix him a big plate and that big grin would come across his face. Our family thought alot of Wes and will always remember him. Our prayers go out for the family.
