He lived his entire life on Denman Island. He started farming at the age of 14 with his Dad and continued farming until his death. He attended school on Denman Island and in Comox. Wes enjoyed his life, his family, his cows, farming and his beloved wife Tricia. He will be greatly missed by many.

Wes was predeceased by his daughter Kathryn. Wes is survived by his loving wife Tricia, son Gordon (Jackie) Piket, daughter Kathleen (Art) Grieder, son Ken Piercy, daughter Karen (Dan) Annand, son Tom (Sonia) Piket, daughter Gina (Channing) Swatez, daughter Annette (Geoff) Ballantyne, son Gary Piercy, brother George Piercy, brother-in-law Bill (Bev)Walton, 18 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.
