  1. Debbie and Family: Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. I was enjoying my renewed acquaintance with my old friend Wes through the magic of Facebook. The world is a little worse off without a guy like Wes Singleton in it. Rest well, old pal. If only we could all go back to the much more innocent time growing up in a tiny town that to us was the center of the universe.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. Wes was a wonderful person and very well liked in our store. Not a day went by that he worked that he did not speak to me, even if was to just say “hi”. I am surely going to miss that and our conversations about the OBX. Lowes will not be the same without Wes.
    Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. Please accept my sympathy. Let the many wonderful memories give you comfort. Dani, I don’t know that I ever met your Dad, but he helped to mold you – and I love him for that.

  4. Debbie and the entire Singleton Family, I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved husband, father, brother. He was loved by so many people and will be greatly missed. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal. RIP Wes.

  5. Please accept my deepest sympathy, Wes will be really missed at Lowes! My thoughts and prayers are with you all. We don’t have to tell you, Wes was a great guy. I can remember when I accidently locked him in the Lawn and Garden area, when the store was closed. I don’t know what made me turn around, but I did and there was Wes standing at the door with smirk on his face and waving at me, I said Oops, Sorry didn’t know you were out there; we had laughed for the longest time. Wes, thanks for the laughs, RIP!

  6. Our deepest love and sorrow to you both Daniella and Debbie. I was so saddened
    to hear of the loss of your wonderful Dad and husband. I had the pleasure of meeting him only once when he brought Daniella to my home, and he was a pleasant and humorous man. I will pray for you both that God will help to heal and to fill the huge void that this has left in both your lives and replace it with the wonderful memories and special times that you have shared. You are in my thoughts and prayers and if there is anything at all that we can do please let us know.
    Peace to you
    The Cerino Family

    My thoughts are with you all. Wes shared himself on our music bulletin boards for about 7 years and while I never met him, I feel honored to have had him in my life.

His sense of humour and optimism will be sorely missed. My deepest sympathy.

To Wes’ family, thank you for sharing your husband/father with us. It made our days a little brighter. I hope you find peace in his memory. I know we will.

  19. My deepest sympathies to Wes’ wife and daughter, and his family. Although Wes and I never met, we are the same age and I graduated from Kennett. Though our association with music, and some music message boards, we knew a lot of the same places, people, and shared musical interests. His wit, love for his family and life, and his love for his Outer Banks and Gauley river vacations inspired me, and also kept me in stitches. the world needs more like Wes and I am fortunate to have been able to interact with him, and be a part, even in cyberspace, of his life. RIP Wes my friend.

  20. I was both shocked and saddened to hear of the loss of Wes. My deepest condolences to Deb and Danielle and the whole Singelton family. I virtually “met” Wes about seven years ago on a message board. There was not a day that went by that he did not put a smile on my face. He was a constant in our Boardie family. His sweet nature and the love of his family was a bright spot in my life for the past seven years. He was so proud of you Danielle as we saw through his writing . We experienced his sending you off to college and then your graduation through his words. He shared with us his everyday life and made us a part of it. His good nature and easy going ways will be forever missed.Rest in peace my friend .

  21. Dear Debbie and Family,

    and prayers. I will always remember Wes as someone who made me
    laugh and was always willing to lend a helping hand. He will be missed.
