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 though out 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, 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 them as the “best” one ever.
He loved serving the Lord in his many Church callings as well as anyone around that he felt could use help. Wes and LaMae were blessed with five daughters, 10 grandchildren and 13 and one-half great-grandchildren.
Preceded in death by his wife of 63 years, parents, daughter Paulette, and sister Maxine. 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.
