  6. I recall Wesley as the happy, friendly, playful youth and neighbour to us in the early years we spent in Mildura with his close, loving family.
    For years I believed him to be the “Elvis”, I never met, due to their striking similarity….. But also wondered, did he have the voice or the him moves too?
    I see from the photo above that through the years he grew very similar to his wonderful Dad, dear Uncle George.
    Wesley’s support over the years to his family, especially Aunty Eileen will sorely be missed and memories treasured.
    We will be thinking of you all tomorrow and send our deepest condolences to Aunty Eileen and all her family.

  9. My sister (Roslyn) and dad (Ross) have almost mention all the wonderful memories we share of dear Wesley. I recall his twinkly, cheeky eyes and his delight in getting a chuckle out of everyone.
    A kind and generous soul, who loved his family and friends dearly.
    Big hugs and much love to Aunty Eileen and family .
