Wes was born on September 29, 1924 in Davenport to Edwin and Edna (Mohr) Rock. He was united in marriage to Georgene Garber on February 18, 1950 in Davenport. After 69 years of marriage, she preceded him in death on June 8, 2019. Wes and Georgene operated the family century farm until their retirement in 2004.

Lovingly referred to as "Papa" by his grandchildren, Wes was defined by his hard work and fun-loving attitude. From cross-country road trips, to skiing the mountains of Colorado, he lived a life of adventure. His greatest joy was to share his experiences with his friends and family. After retiring at the age of 80, he spent much of his time riding horses, which he loved taking out on the local trails. There was never a more charming or magnetic person and he will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his daughter Denise; his son-in-law, Van Cline; and five grandchildren, Lauren Cline (Hunt Briggs), Alex Cline, Christian Cline, Katie Maher, Cassidy Maher, and 2 great-grandchildren, Wesley and Rowan Briggs.

He is preceded in death by his wife Georgene and his daughter, Christine.

A special thanks to the caregivers at Grand Haven and Heartland Hospice.
