On behalf of our family, we are saddened to share Wesley Edward Folkestad, born December 17, 1954, passed away unexpectedly of natural causes July 29, 2019 in Coon Rapids, MN at the age of 64. Wesley "Wes" will be deeply missed by his loving wife Colleen (Hartley) Folkestad.

Wes is preceded in death by his father Wilfred Folkestad, mother LaVon (Shermer) Sowada and siblings Scott Folkestad, Daniel and Derrell Sowada.

Wes took great pride in being a member of the Painters Union, Local 386. He will be remembered and missed by many friends within this brotherhood.

Everyone who knew Wes knows that he loved to talk and tell a good story; we will all remember his detailed storytelling and playful manner.
