I met Wes at Branson Dive shop back in the late 70's and early 80's. I enjoyed talking with him so much, and always looked for him when I traveled down from Georgia to dive the springs. His joy of the underwater world would spill over onto anyone that took the time to get to know him. I am sorry to learn of his untimely death, but are very blessed to have known him. Thank you Wes for all your contributions!
