Wes was born on January 1, 1951, in Grinnell, the son of John and Wilma Broders Wallis. He spent his life on the family farm in Malcom. He was a 1969 graduate of Grinnell High School and served in the National Guard during the Vietnam War.

On December 30, 1983, he was united in marriage to Susan Muse in Grinnell.

In 1993, Wes was baptized into the Christian Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Wes loved everything about farming, talking about and working on tractors, and he always knew the answers. He loved spending time with his grandchildren, taking gator rides with his co-pilot, Blue and telling stories to everyone he met.

Those left to honor his memory are his wife, Susan Wallis of Malcom; two sons, John (Darcy) Wallis of Grinnell and Brandon Wallis of Malcom; three daughters, Jennifer (Bill) Gragg of Newburg, Cindy (Jason) Christensen of Sarasota, Florida and Krystal (David) Smith of Grinnell; four grandsons, Lane, Seth, Kaden and Noah; five granddaughter, Zarah, Anna, Jordan, Katelynn and Lilliana; two sisters, Carol Giovanazzi of Muscatine and Eleanor Rudd of Tucson, Arizona; and a nephew, Greg (Karen) Goth of Plantation, Florida.
