Obituary Condolences

Passed suddenly on Tuesday, April 18, 2017, of Robinson Twp., age 63. Wes lived his professional life in two very different industries over the course of his career, often working in both at the same time. A highly accomplished corporate sales executive, Wes most recently worked for Waste Management. He most loved his work behind the microphone as a talk show host who evoked emotion in the hearts and minds of those who listened to him on radio stations WSB-Atlanta, WCCO- Minneapolis, WHIO-Dayton, KRMG-Tulsa, and KDKA- Pittsburgh over the years. A patriotic man, Wes wanted the world to be a better place, and he used the power of a microphone to do his part in making that happen. He cared deeply about the communities he lived in and even more in those who he trusted as a personal friend. Private about his personal life for most of his life, Wes met Jamie Rowe in 2003 and they wed in 2014. Beloved husband of Jamie M. Rowe; son of Audrey Rice and the late Robert Lee Rice; and also his birth father, the late Howard Minter; brother of Kenneth D. Rice and Linda G. Minter; uncle of Jennifer English and Kory Rice. Friends received Friday 4-7 p.m. at the JOSEPH M. SOMMA FUNERAL HOME, INC., 5405 Steubenville Pike, Moon Run, Robinson Twp. Family and friends will gather on Saturday at 10:45 a.m. for an 11 a.m. funeral service at Ken Mawr United Presbyterian Church, Kennedy Twp. Memorial contributions in honor of Wes to Children's Hospital of Pgh., 4401 Penn Ave., Pgh., PA 15224 or Wounded Warrior Project, PO Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675.
