The family moved to Ottumwa, IA when Wesley was a young man and following his education he worked as a farm hand and an auto mechanic. He married Helen Maxine Coyne in 1958. They made their home in Ottumwa. Wes and Maxine later diverced and Wes moved to Cedar Rapids where he worked as a bartender. He later moved to Columbia, MO and worked as a farm hand. Wes moved to Oskaloosa in 1990 to be near his family. He enjoyed fishing, working on cars and spending time with his grandchildren.
