We have known Wes before he was married. He came in our gas station for years and we could talk old times. A great guy, you have our thoughts and prayers.
To the family of Wes Garvey I send my sympathy and prayers. Wes and I worked as supervisors at the Fort Dodge Post Office for a few years. I know he will be missed by those who knew him and especially his family. Wes always spoke very fondly of his family and was proud of his children each in their own way. Now Rest In Peace Wes.
