Wes passed away peacefully at home with his family beside him on Aug. 27, 2018. He was born on Dec. 20, 1927, at his grandmother’s home, to Bert and Velma Twitchell in Enterprise, Utah.
He spent his early years in Pioche, Nevada, and later moved back to Enterprise. Growing up in the depression years, he learned early how to work hard and had many occupations throughout his life. Dad always loved driving trucks and retired from P.I.E. Trucking. He served in the Korean War, hauling bombs up to the front lines, and returning with wounded men.
When Dad returned home, he met the love of his life, LaMae Finlinson. They were married in Delta, Utah, and later sealed in the St. George Temple.
Dad loved the outdoors, spending many hours, camping, hunting and fishing with the family, always taking “the old road” to the perfect spot. Dad always had a companion dog and sometimes more than one. He always thought they were “perfect” and he treated each as the “best” one ever.
He loved serving the Lord in his many church callings, also serving anyone around who he felt could use help. Wes and LaMae were blessed with five daughters, 10 grandchildren and 13.5 great-grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his wife of 63 years; parents; daughter, Paulette; and sister, Maxine.
He is survived by his daughters, Connie (Rod) Wood, Corrie (Jeff) Tingey, Patrice Twitchell, Angie (Brian) Glissmeyer; his sisters, Sherrie Brown and Rae (Larry) Overson; and his faithful dog, Dottie.
