Clarence Wesley (Wes) Wismer was bon March 11, 1930 in Tillamook, Ore. to Walter S. and Elizabeth Wismer (Balmer). He is preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Delores Ann Wismer (Leake) and his brother Robert Wismer. He is survived by his six children: Glenice and (Red) Smith, Ron Wismer and (Jody), Gary Wismer and (Ann) and Diane Schwebach of Tillmook. Cheryl Glenn and (Stan) of Willis, Texas and Cathy Magnuson of Lincoln City. His wife Carol and her children: Kellie and (Blair) Smith, Carol and (Russ) Halverson and Michael and (Renee) Fredericks of Anderson, Calif. Eighteen grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter. Sisters Jeanette Rawe and Joyce Deane and many nieces and nephews. Wesley passed away at his home on Chance Road on March 9, 2017 – two days prior to his 87thbirthday. He lived a long, full and happy life surrounded by his family and friends. Wesley was a lifetime member of the Church of the Nazarene and the Tillamook Pioneer Association. He drove truck his entire life, from hauling hay as a kid to long-haul trucking into his 80s. He owned and operated his own trucking business. He and Delores built their dream home in the early 1970s and raised beef cattle up until his death. He loved dogs and his longtime companion Cleo was by his side when he passed. He was quick to tell a story or share a joke – he was able to strike up a conversation with anyone. He instilled values in his kids and grandkids. He had a tough exterior but a great smile and sense of humor and a kind heart. You will be cherished and missed Dad, Grandpa and Great-grandpa! The ole Freightliner has come to a rest.
