Wesley McAtee

Wesley passed away on February 3rd surrounded by his family at his favorite place, his home.  He was born December 20, 1945 to James and Mamie McAtee in Ogden, Utah.

He served in the United States Navy Seabee’s during the Vietnam war from 1965 until 1967.  He married Darlene Loy on April 5, 1968; together they had three son’s: Timothy, Sean (Sarah), Kelly (Elizabeth) McAtee.  He graduated from Weber State University with an associate degree and retired after 46 years of working at Cereal Food Processor.

Wes was a practicing Catholic at St. Joseph Church where he was an usher and Eucharistic Minister for many years.

He loved Weber State Basketball, horse racing and baseball but he adored his three grandchildren: Zac, Eden and Ellie, they were the light of his life. He is preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, and survived by one brother, Richard McAtee.

We want to give a special thanks to Frank Loy, his brother-in-law, who went above and beyond caring for him.

There will be a celebration of Wesley’s life at a later date when it’s safer to gather.   In lieu of flowers please make a donation to Weber County Animal Shelter or the Catholic Community Services.

I am very sorry for your loss. I have nothing but very fond memories of your family and my many interactions with you. I am sure he will be missed. I am also sure he would be very proud of those of you he left behind. My thoughts are with you.

I remember those tumbling trips, also. It was so fun to travel with such wonderful people. I will always have such warm memories of you and your family. Rest in peace.

Sure did have a lot of Good times traveling with you and Darlene to tumbling meets for Kelly and Shane. Ill never forget your car break down ordeal in Chicago and you guys scared to death staying at the fleabag hotel for those nights waiting for your car repair. The looks on your faces when you walked into our hotel in Rockford was priceless and you all looked like you'd been dragged behind the car. Rest well Wes and watch over your family.
