It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Wesley Walter Wade of Drumheller, AB on December 17th, 2022 at 59 years of age.
Wesley was born on October 21st, 1963. He was the sixth child and only son born to Harry and Doris Wade of Drumheller, AB.
Growing up on the family farm with his parents and seven sisters was overwhelming at times for an only boy. Wes enjoyed grooming, feeding, breaking & training the animals we raised for food or show, as well as the pets we loved & nurtured. He was a happy, blue eyed, blonde haired boy with a deep dimpled chin & mischievous grin. A busy little guy, but such a joy to watch over... he'd follow us everywhere ready to do whatever we were doing.
As he got older, him being a quick learner when it came to tossing a baseball, playing football or teaching him any type of sport... he so enjoyed playing & watching sports, as well as singing and dancing.
In his 20's, Wesley enrolled in the military. Unfortunately, he severely injured his knee & his back so the stint was short. These injuries plagued him for the whole & remainder of his life.
Wes's good friends were few, but he was loyal to the ones he chose or who chose him. He was a very proud man & had much love for his little Maltese dog he named "Cuddles". She was his faithful companion 'til his last day.
Wesley is survived by his loving Mother, Doris A. Wade of Drumheller, AB.
