    I’m proud to say that Uncle Wes had such a huge part in making me who I am today. He made his mark on all the lives he encountered and he’ll never be forgotten. He was undeniably one the strongest men of whom I’ve ever got the chance to witness, physically and mentally. He had such a genuinely good soul and stood for what he believed in no matter what others thought. I’ve learned so much just having known the person he was and I know the memories we’ve shared have more to teach me yet. I’m so blessed to have had an uncle as incredible as Wes especially as a guardian angel now.

    Wish I could have met Wes but from everything his wife Toshia shared over the years…it sounded like they were blessed with a wonderful relationship and made the best of the time they had. My heart goes out to his children, wife and parents. May all of his family find solace that Wes no longer suffers. So sorry for your loss.

In 2003, he met Latoshia Marie Jewell-McElwain and they spent 19 years by each other’s sides, enjoying life and watching their family grow. Wes loved riding his Harley and would hit the roads saying it was “the best therapy.” He also enjoyed hunting, shooting, collecting guns, watching the kids play sports, and spending time on the river. However, his greatest joy was the time he spent with his family, who will all miss him very much.
