Again cancer has taken another loved one from us. With deep sorrow, we lost Wesley Earl Burns. On Sept.21 at 7:30 PM, he passed with his family by his side.
Wesley was born to Wesley Burns Sr. and Willie Lou Burns in Bakersfield,Ca. at the Cottage Hospital, now known as Good Samaritan Hospital.
Wesley married and divorced Cindy Holman and they had 2 boys. Jeremiah of Ventura,Ca and Justin of Seattle,Wash. 1 grandson,Benjamin. Which he truly loved and adored very much.
He worked for Buttonwillow Crop Dusters, drove a truck and then a long shoreman loading coal into the trains.
When he wasn't working, he was with family and friends, camping ,backpacking, cave exploring and metal detecting. These adventures created memories that will forever be cherished.

Wesley is survived by his sons, Jeremiah(Sara) Burns and Justin(Michelle)Burns and his grandson Benjamin.
Wesley's brother, Wesley Jr.(Debbie) Burns of Lebanon,Ore. and sister Joyce Ann(Larry) Comstock. Also many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends..
