Wesley Fred Pietz M.D. Obituary

Wesley Fred Pietz M.D., of Yuba City, California, passed away on April 3, 2017 at the age of 82. Wes was born on September 23, 1934 in Streeter, North Dakota.

After graduating high school at the age of 16, he pursued his dream of becoming a doctor. He was a flight surgeon in the Air Force for almost 10 years, retiring at the rank of Lt. Colonel. His next career was practicing as an Orthopedic Surgeon at Marysville Medical Center. Wes married the love of his life, Barbara Ann Rowe, on August 3, 1957.

The two were inseparable until she proceeded him in death on November 5, 2015.

Wes is survived by his son Bryan (wife Lori, step grandchildren Janet Wills, Chris Wills and step great-grandchild Christopher), son Michael (wife Lynne, grandchildren Shawn, Chris, Vicky, Jessica, and Nick), and daughter Cheryl (wife CJ). Wes wanted his children and grandchildren to know "that I love them." He leaves his siblings, Barbara Jones, David Pietz, Kay Francis, and sister Genevieve Bonifas who preceded him death. Wes wanted his brother and sisters to know "you can't pick your family, but maybe I would have picked them anyway." Many thanks and appreciation to our long-term family caregiver, Deena Leach.

A graveside remembrance is set for Monday, April 10, 2017, at 1:00 p.m., at Peoria Cemetery, 6065 Sandy Way, Browns Valley, California.
