William Wesley “Wes” Sasser


William Wesley Sasser, known as “Wes” to family and friends, age 44, died on October 21,2016 at NHRMC. He was born on July 7, 1972, in Wilmington, NC and was the son of Barbara Reavis (Al deceased) and Lewis N. Sasser (Gloria).

Wesley was employed with NHRMC in the food distribution department for ten years, and most recently transferred to their grounds facilities department. He was a member of Temple Baptist Church where he, most recently, served as a deacon. Both his work and his church gave him a chance to do what he loved most, working with others to help them overcome obstacles in their lives. His interest in others and his loving demeanor were traits that enabled him to bridge many gaps. Above all else, was his love for his family and, most especially, his daughter, Mary Beth.
