Condolences to the family of Wesley Walter Wade


Wesley Walter

October 21, 1963 - December 17, 2022

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, curly 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 he possibly could.
In his 20’s, Wesley enrolled in the military. Unfortunately, he severely injured his knee & his back so his time was cut short. These injuries plagued him painfully 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.
Sister - Bernice Cheater (Darcy) of Brooks, AB.
Sister - Valerie Goetz (Howard) of Edmonton, AB.
Sister - Jean Goetz of Blackfalds, AB.
Sister - Jackie Watson (Clint) of Drumheller, AB.
Sister - Gwen Gray (Steven) of Drumheller, AB.
Sister - Tami Bowers (Brian) of Strathmore, AB.
Wes is also survived by his eldest nephew Samuel van Kampen; niece Erin Pan (Dave Haley); nephew Chris Goetz; niece Nicole Watson (Alex McLean); nephew Jack Bowers and numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces & great nephews as well as several cousins.
Predeceased by his father Harry Wade on February 6, 2012; Baby niece - Teala Wade in February of 1988; his eldest sister - Theresa Yearous (Duane) of B.C. in October of 2002; and most recently his beautiful niece - Ashley Watson in January of 2021. Wesley will be dearly missed.
