Wesley Ford Kennedy
Wesley Ford Kennedy passed away suddenly on April 7th, 2021 after a long illness. Wesley was born in Hinsdale, IL on May 10th, 1995 and brightened lives of those around him from his first day of life. He loved athletics as a boy and playing the trumpet beginning at age 5 and into the military. He believed in God and that Jesus Christ died for him and rose again.
After graduating from high school, Wes served his country in the air force maintaining navigation systems on C130 transport planes at Yokota Air Force Base in Japan.
Wes loved pets - which normally included dogs - and once nursed a deformed, partially blind cat back to life.
Wes was a loyal friend, son, brother and uncle and showed great care for those around him. He particularly loved spending time with his niece, Elise and nephew, Emmett.
Wes enjoyed gardening with his mother and a garden celebrating Wesley’s life will be planted where Wes last lived, at his parent’s home in Wellford, SC. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Waysidegardens.com in Wesley’s name for plants to be delivered to Reid and Lisa Kennedy at 325 Hillcove Pt, Wellford, SC 29385.
Wesley is survived by his mother, Lisa, father Reid, brother, Reid, sister, Grace, niece, Elise, nephew, Emmett, brother-in-law, Ian, and numerous cousins.
We love you, Wes, and know we will see you again in heaven. Your suffering is over.
