He was the Barber in Durham, owned his own shop, and was active in Durham Businessmen's Association.

Chico Record, Wednesday, November 6, 1935, pg 5, col 2: "Business Men Name Officers. Durham -- Wesley Sitton was elected president of the Durham Business Men's Association, Monday evening, succeeding Frank Mills. A.M. Strong was elected vice president. C.E. Ray, secretary and Clark Hunger, treasurer, were reelected.

"The meeting was held at the Southern Pacific depot and was conducted by president Frank Mills. The committee in charge of the two signs, which will advertise Durham as the busiest little city in the Golden Empire, reported the signs ready for installation as soon as a permit is received. Ray, Charles Schab and A. Greene were appointed as a committee to investigate the possibilities of obtaining a public dumping ground for the community. The association decided to discontinue the cash merchants' prize in two weeks, after which time the money will be turned into the treasury to aid in the Community Christmas tree which the business men will sponsor.

"Plans were made for a turkey dinner to be served at the next meeting at which time the new officers will be installed. The committee in charge of the dinner consists of V.J. Taylor, A.M. Strong and Wesley Sitton. Refreshments were enjoyed at the close of the meeting."
