Wesley left this world after 91 years on October 24, 2020, with his daughter by his side, at the RK MacDonald Nursing Home in Antigonish. Wes was born on November 17, 1928 in Cross Roads Country Harbour to Gertrude and Malcolm Mason. After marriage, Wes moved to Loch Katrine to run a dairy farm and later raised beef cattle.
Wesley was a farmer and labourer throughout his life. From running a farm, cutting pulp wood to working Christmas trees, he loved the outdoors. Always in his work clothes and ready for a cold beer after making hay! He raised beef cattle until the age of 75, when his health began to fail. Wes was in "his element" at the store in Goshen, where he had his own chair in the corner, having coffee with the guys and sharing stories! He loved to defend his political side, showing clippings from The Chronicle Herald to prove his point.
Wesley is survived by his daughter, Anne (Mark) Farrell of Antigonish, and two son’s, Scott (Tracy) of Campbell River, BC and Malcolm (Joanne) of Spruce Grove, AB; former spouse Helen Grant of Glen Haven Manor, New Glasgow; five grandchildren Makaylah, Jayden, Riley and Hayley Farrell of Antigonish and Adam Mason of Campbell River, BC.; Siblings Victor (Elizabeth), Goshen; Vera Feltmate, Antigonish; Maxine White, New Glasgow; Shirley Mills (Harley), Ontario; sister-in-law Roxie, Brantford, ON; many nieces and nephews; and close friend Michael Bernie MacNeil of Frasers Mills.
Wesley was predeceased by his parents, Gertrude and Malcolm Mason; brothers Edgar and Earl; sister Greta Hayne; brothers-in-law Merritt Feltmate, Robert White and Francis Hayne; sister-in-law Bertha and close nephew Brian Mason.
Special thanks to all the angels at the RK MacDonald Martha’s Inn who cared for dad with such care and compassion and shared my tears during his last days. It will not be forgotten❤️
