Residing in Atlanta since 1958, Wes was the epitome of a gracious Southern gentleman.

He served his Lord as a 55 year church and United Fidelity Sunday School member and usher at St. James United Methodist Church. In 2006, he sold his family home and became an active member of the Mount Vernon Towers and Benson Center communities. He loved to play bridge and bingo and take sweets to share wherever he went. Wes served his country faithfully as an Army officer and retired as a decorated Army Ordnance Major. A graduate of the University of Maryland with a B.S. degree in finance, he was a retired Executive Vice President of SunTrust Banks, Inc., a business counselor with SCORE, and past president of the Buckhead Kiwanis Club and the Buckhead Fifty Club. Please join us to celebrate his life on Friday, July 5, 2013 at 2 o'clock at St. James United Methodist Church with Dr. John Simmons and Rev. Ken Jones officiating. Interment will follow at Arlington Memorial Park. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate contributions made to St. James United Methodist Church, 4400 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd., Atlanta, GA 30342.
