Wesley "Wes" Stokke

Age 63 of Wilmington, Illinois, died Monday, February 7, 2022 at his home surrounded by his family.

Born December 14, 1958 in Valparaiso, Indiana, Wesley Eric is a son of Gloria (nee Dancey) Stokke of Ottawa, Illinois, and the late Lowell Stokke. He was raised in Hebron, Indiana and graduated from Hebron High School with the Class of 1977.

Wes was currently employed with United Machinery and Tool in Minooka. In his free time, he enjoyed gardening, both flowers and vegetables, which he consistently gave away.

Mill, South Carolina; Grandaughters; Shelby Grace, Addison Rae, and Hannah June; his mother, Gloria Stokke; brother, Mark (Kathy) Stokke of Minooka and sister, Donna (Larry) Terpstra of Ottawa, as well as nephews and nieces: Christopher Stokke, Melissa (Steve) Larson, Thomas Stokke, Derek Terpstra, and Laura (Brandon) Tarr.
