After graduating from Highland High School in 1991, Wesley enjoyed working various jobs and touched the lives of many people. He enjoyed bowling, loved the Redskins and Chevy’s. He was also passionate about horses, dogs, and fishing. His love for life and people can be best summed up through the words of his Pastor, Chip Hill, “he loved life, loved his family and friends and his Redeemer, Jesus Christ…Everyone was drawn to Wesley like flies to honey and was always happy and always ready to pick and be picked on.”

He also leaves behind special caregivers, Bonnie and Jeff Puckett of Steeles Tavern and special friend, James.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Willie and Regana Arbaugh.
