Wow, that's sad to hear.

His legacy will live on through his articles and those he has taught and helped.

I haven't been here very often since I sold my car, but this news caught my eye. Very sad to read this.

Every time I jack a car up, & I seriously mean every time, I grab a jackstand & always think of Wes' tech articles.

His dedication to this site during the early days should not be forgotten.

Godspeed Wes.

I never met the man in person, but his tech articles have helped me immensely over the years. My sincere condolences to his family.
May he rest in peace in the loving arms of our heavenly father.

I met Wes a long time ago in Pasadena at Fuddruckers. We use to meet ever so often for the "SoCal TCer's Meet and Greet at Fuddruckers" He was very informative and had a real nice Chevelle Wagon too. He made a big impression on me as very talented craftsman.

If I find the pictures of the event can I email or post the picture on a tribute page?
