I met Dr Wes back in 1980. I was a student of his that took as many classes as I could of his. He has had a huge impact on my life. There is almost never a day goes by that I dont rely on something that I learned under his wise teaching. So practical and doctrinally accurate. I look forward to seeing him in heaven!!

We are so sorry we could not be there o expresss our condolences personally. With a granddaughter's wedding, hosting family from out of state, and physical issues, we regret we could not attend either the calling or funeral. Cherished memories go back well over 50 years when Dt. Wes was teaching the Pathfinder's SS Class at FMC. In naming the class, Pathfinders was used for lack of a "better" name and it stuck all this time! Also, memories of playing

I had the privilege to sit under Dr. Wes' teaching at FWBC in the 1980's. He was such a Godly man and there is not a day that goes by that I don't use something that he taught me. I know he is now basking in the Masters presence hearing "well done, good and faithful servant". I'm so thankful that I could clean from him.

We were so sorry to miss the viewing and funeral but work and family obligations kept us from coming. We are so sorry about your father, and we extend our sincere sympathies. We were blessed to have known him.

To the Gerig Family - I express my sympathy to you. I'm praying God's grace and comfort and peace. At the same time, I rejoice in that Wes is in the glorious presence of our Savior Jesus Christ. He has heard from Jesus those special words - "Well done, my good and faithful servant!"

Dr. Wes touched my life in many ways. He was one of my favorite profs at Taylor FW. He had such a passion for the Lord and

Due to present health issues we are sending our "Sympathy' to the very dear Gerig family.
Wes, was a God like mentor, pastor (an interim at Harvester Ave. Miss. Church for 11 yrs.), assisted in the marriage of our children, and faithfully prayed for our son Gene (Bub) after his stroke.


We rejoice in Wes's home going but we will miss a faithful servant of the Lord!


Indebted friends,

Dad & Mom Ringenberg preached @ Cleveland Missionary Church after Dr. and Mrs. Jared and Mildred Gerig were there. He has many fond memories of Dr. Wes and family. Our families were close.
