I'm just reading this. Wes and I were good friends. He got me a job as a lifeguard, I believe, at Pennmar apartments where he was pool manager. I was waiting for him one morning, for him to relieve me,when we found out he'd been in a motorcycle accident that took his leg.

His mom and my mom got pretty close after the accident and I tried to help him adjust to his new life.

I think the morphine they handed out in the hospital and after became an addiction for him that he couldn't get past. I am so sorry.

God knows what his life could have been like had this not happened. He was the nicest and most fun guy.

Miss ya Wes.

This just breaks my heart.  I knew Wes very well both during high school and after.  We spent a lot of fun times together, and went on some Great rides.  He truly was a free spirit.  I'm so sorry to hear that he fell into hard times.  God bless him and his family.

Wes was a great friend in high school.  I have always thought that the loss of his leg was a major life changer for him.  Scott - I remember when we were seniors, Wes and I drove up together to Offenbacher Aquatic services to apply for lifeguarding jobs.  It was raining, and I was driving on the beltway.  For some reason, a car stopped short in front of me, and I lost control of the car.  It did a 180 on the beltway so I ended up facing the wrong way in the traffic.  Wes and I were scared to death.  Fortunately, the beltway wasn't as crowded as it is today and drivers were nicer, so they stopped so I could drive over to the shoulder and face the right way.  We eventually made our way up to Offenbacher and got our jobs.

Hi everyone,

I'm sorry to hear of Wesley Kyser's death. I recognize his name, as I do some of the others of you who have posted, but I can't say we were friends like some of you have said. After High School it wasn't that lomng before I left the area and haven't kept contact with anyone. I saw Peter Bergman once when working at Colonial Williamsburg. And I saw Dennis and Val Koons a time or two. It's nice to see that some of you had longer lasting relationships and have kept in touch all these years.

My best wishes to you all and my condolences to Wes' family and friends.
