Wesley Arthur Vincent, 78, went to be with his Lord and Savior on January 3, 2021 due to complications from Covid 19 after several years of poor health.
He was born October 4, 1942 and lived in Albany, NY until he left for college at the University of Iowa. His career as an electrical engineer found him living in Arizona (where he received his advanced degree), California, and Indiana. After retirement he pursued his passions for missions through volunteer work, and for music by playing his trumpet in various churches and nursing homes. From 2002 to 2004, he and his wife became volunteer missionaries in South Africa at Tswelopele.
Preceded in death by his parents and grandson, Matthew Molina, he is survived by his devoted wife of 48 years, Sharon Fuller Vincent, daughters Laurel (Carl) Molina, Jennifer (Dick) Anderson, and sons Paul (Karla) Vincent, Andrew (Maricela) Vincent, Joel Vincent, and Levi (Alyssa) Vincent as well as sister June (Russ) Cherry and brothers-in-law Daryl (Julia) Fuller and Dean Fuller. He had fourteen grandchildren and three adorable great grandchildren.
2 Timothy 4:7 says: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” This was Wes’s goal that has now been realized.
