Wesley E. Skeie, 32

With deepest sorrow, we announce that Wesley Evan Skeie of Cokato, born Nov. 21, 1987, our most beloved son, brother, family member, and friend, passed away Tuesday, July 21, 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a Celebration of Life will be planned for a later date when it is safe for all who knew him to gather and celebrate the amazing man he was.

He grew up in Champlin, MN. He received his bachelor of arts degree from St. Cloud State University, and worked in both sales and manufacturing over the years.

Wesley was a talented athlete with a passion for all sports. He loved the outdoors, fishing, music, movies, and reading.

All those who were lucky enough to know Wes, lost a bright shining light in their lives. We will miss his huge heart, kind caring nature, his laughter, amazing sense of humor, and most of all, the love he had for his family and friends.

Wesley will be missed everyday by his mom and stepdad, Colleen Skeie Norenberg and Barry Norenberg; his father, Brian Olson; step-mother Kristine Olson; his brothers, Charles Norenberg, Max Olson, and Clark Place; his grandparents, Kathy Skeie, John Myers, Cindy and Gary Olson, Sandy and George Eng, Bob and Theresa Stommel; and numerous loving aunts; uncles; cousins; pets; and many great friends.

We know Wesley is now in the loving arms of God. Grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and his beloved black lab Buster were there to greet him as he entered heaven.

We love and miss you so much Wesley, and are so grateful for the time we had with you – 32 years wasn’t nearly long enough . . . until we meet again XOXO.
