Danny Wester

March 5, 1941 ~ July 18, 2022 (age 81)


Danny Max, Wester (Papa) passed away in his home on July 18th, 2022. He lived a wonderful life surrounded by family and friends. He is proceeded in death by his wife of 54 years Betty Reed Wester, mother and father J.C. and Mary Wester, sister-in-law, Sandy Wester and brother-in-law David Couch.

He is survived by, children Jeff Wester and wife Rachel Wester, Dana Higginbotham, Kristi Courtney and husband Donald Courtney, brother Gary Wester, Mike and wife Ruth Wester, sister Sara Jo Couch, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Papa was born in Mt. Vernon, Texas on March 5th, 1941. He grew up in Mt Vernon Texas spending summers with great grandparents in Tira, Texas. Later as a young adult he enlisted in the Airforce as a Military Police Officer. He then married his first wife Patsy, and they had their daughter Dana. He married Betty Reed on June 29, 1968, in Dallas Texas. Betty had a daughter, Kristi, who Danny adopted, and they had their son Jeff while in Dallas. While here Danny was a little league coach for Jeff's baseball team. The family moved to San Antonio, Texas. There, he was the Branch Manager for Kwik Wash Laundries. He retired after 30 years. Wanting to be closer to his parents and family they moved to Avery around 2002. He spent his retired years ranching, fishing, drinking, loving, and caring for family. Danny was definitely a spitfire kind of man, always drinking his medicine and cutting up with all his family and friends. He knew no stranger and made sure everyone around him knew he was there. Whether you were a member of his community or just someone driving past him on the road, you always got a wave and some veggies. He will truly be missed by everyone who had the opportunity to meet him.
