Wes attended the University of Nebraska for two years before returning to the ranch to help his ailing father. Wes married Gettie G. Boyer on June 18, 1949 in Mullen, Nebraska. To this union, they had three children; Rita, Gay and Dan. Wes was a faithful, lifetime member of the Bassett United Methodist Church; being both baptized & confirmed there. He taught Sunday school and served as the superintendent of Sunday school. He served as a lay preacher in both the Bassett and Springview Methodist Churches. He loved reading and studying the bible.

Wes was proud to take the Honor Flight to Washington D.C. for WWII veterans.
