He was employed by Tobin Packing Co., Hilton Spencerport Express, and the Town of Hamlin Highway Department for 20 years. He was a life-long member of St. John Lutheran Church in Hamlin. His faith and love of God were very important to him. 

Wesley was a sports enthusiast, enjoying participating in his younger years – fast pitch softball and baseball, golfing, snowmobiling, and bowling. He loved watching the Yankees and the Detroit Lions, as well as high school and college football and basketball games. He enjoyed fishing and hunting when he was able. Wesley enjoyed tending to his vegetable garden as well.
