Sincere condolences to the Tario family. Always enjoyed chatting with Wes at ball tournaments. Very kind and loving man.
Met Wes in high school. Always a great guy, just like all the “Renfrew boys”. My condolences to his family. Rest in Peace Wes.

I appreciated Wes’s kind support as a new lawn bowler.
Also his sense of humour and fun and love of the game. Loved the cat stories. Live well…like Wes. Condolences and comfort to all who were near him.
Lena & Bill, Shelley & Louie, Wanda & Denis, Jackie, and families,
Our sincere condolences to you all on the passing of Wes. It was really nice to spend time with Wes this past Stampede. His laughter is something we will always remember Wes for. He always made things fun whenever we saw him at family gatherings.
Take care and find comfort in all the great memories you all have of Wes.
Brent & Debbie, Evan, Nolan & Kahla (Hadley & Jayce)
We didn't know Wes that long, having only bowled with him the last two years, but he was a true sportsman, on and off the green. He always made such a fuss over our dog, Sadie, who reciprocated the affection. She is a great judge of character. Rest in peace. Len and Lorraine Canning.
It was my privilege to meet and bowl with Wes. He truly loved bowling and was always up for a game. His positive attitude and pleasant personality will be missed. Rest well.
I always enjoyed bowling with Wes at the Stanley Park Lawn Bowling Club. He loved competing but was always a perfect sportsman, congratulating both teammates and opponents on good shots and always a positive presence on the green. After he completed his umpire training he and I enjoyed debating fine points of the Laws of Lawn Bowls on the patio or on the drive home. I will miss him.
Wes was on my lawn bowling team during the past season and, in spite of his difficulties, he played well and always brought a positive attitude to the game.
Wes you are a friend who showed us all how to live life to the fullest. Always a great athlete and competitor in every sport and with us on the lawn bowls greens. You never gave up on anything even when the odds were not in your favor.
Thanks for volunteering as an Umpire and wearing you red officials shirt rather than your normal purple. Whenever we ended up on the same team I would ask you to be my skip. It was so you could show me the way. Which you did so well, only in the game, but in life. Love you like a brother Wes.
To Lena, Jacquie, Shelley, Wanda Sophie & family. Wes was a great friend on and off the lawn bowls green at Stanley Park. He was a real trooper fighting cancer the entire time I have known him and never complaining…just “going for a top up” or “time at the all inclusive” he would casually say. I will miss those purple Taylor Aces, colourful shirts, BIG smile, and his competitive spirit on the green. Time on the patio together with. Kokanee or Radler. And those long late night chats. Our last bowls together was on October 3rd “Under the Lights” at Stanley playing “yardstick” bowls. Wes & Patti beat John & I ….. Wes had those purple bowls dialed in. I will cherish the fond memories of our time together and as Wes would always say “just for shits and giggles”. Keep Smilin. Hugs and Sincerest Sympathy. Bev Robinson
I had known Wes for many years. We had some great adventures and a lot of laughs. I have always been proud to call you my friend. Rest in Peace Brother.
I have known Wes for many years and he was a very special friend to me he will be sadly missed. We went to school together and he stood up for Jerdon and I at our Wedding. We used to get together almost every weekend to either play 9-5-2 or Rummoli before he moved to Saskatchewan then we talked almost every week where he helped me pick hockey games in a looser pool that I was in. I. Will always remember Wes for his Laughter and his joking around he will never be forgotten.
