Thinking of all of you; Rocky, Julie, Strawn, and Reed. He was a great man!

All of us at the Providence Cancer Center in Portland, Oregon express our deepest sympathies to the entire Dixon family. Wes and Sue have been wonderful friends to innovations in medical science and discovery, including cancer research efforts here. His legacy lives on here.

My sincere condolences to Wes' family. Wes was a great man who was kind, generous, supportive and a much-respected member of a great local family. His work for Lake Forest College I know best and can't say how much I appreciate all he did for that institution. He will be remembered for his exemplary citizenship and mourned as a friend of many of us.

I am honored and blessed to have known Wes. He was truly a blessing in my life and many others that knew Wes. My heartfelt condolences go out to Sue and Family.

On behalf of the staff of the Dixon National Tallgrass Prairie Seed Bank at the Chicago Botanic Garden, I would like to extend my condolences.
