August 27, 1961 - June 4, 2021
Wesley Edward Price completed his earthly journey June 4, 2021. For the 59 years he was part of our family, he taught us much and enriched our lives greatly. Wes was born with Downs Syndrome August 27, 1961. As one of God's special children, he was loved and cared for by his parents, Shirley and Ed Price until they preceded him in death. Then, in 2014 his sister and brother-in- law, Jonie and Steve Mallett, lovingly became his caregivers, While working hard to overcome limitations imposed by illness, Wes demonstrated daily the importance of living one day at a time. First and foremost, he loved his family. He also loved his church and his job at Work Force, until he was no longer able to do either. His focus then became interacting with friends and caregivers while enjoying his music and improving his writing skills. Mercifully, his passing was at home, gentle and swift, surrounded by those he loved and who loved him. Thanks be to God.A graveside service will be held on Tuesday June 8, 2021 at 10:00AM at Republican Cemetery in Greenbrier, Arkansas.

Wesley was a dear sweet man, even though I've not seen him in years, (except maybe walmart one day), but I met him when I use to work in 31 & he was a sweet, sweet man. I'm so glad he was raised at home & had family to live with, after his parents passing. I'm so glad I came to know him & it's a blessing now, thinking of him with Jesus Amen.May God comfort you all, in his sweet love and peace in Jesus name Amen.
Beautiful words written so accurately. Wes was always so sweet and kind and he sure loved his family. Prayers for comfort.
Praying for you all, he was such a sweet, caring man. He will definitely be missed!
Wesley you were a delight buddy. You will be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time, Wes was a special Child of God. He was loved by all, and He showed God’s love to everyone he met. God bless all of you for giving Wes the best care you could provide for him. We love you.
Prayers for wisdom in decisions along with comfort, and peace for everyone in the Mallett family on the home going of Wesley, especially Jonie. Fred and Wanda Landers
My deepest sympathy for Wesley's family and friends. Wish I had known him. I consider anyone born with Downs Syndrome to be SPECIAL children of God. Maybe He put them on this earth to teach us that we should treat each other as His own creation. His photo indicates to me that he was well loved and treated well. God bless.
