Wesley A. Buller


(Nov. 7, 2007)

Wesley A. Buller, 56, Powell, died on the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 7 in Phoenix, Ariz.

Wes was born Oct. 23, 1951, in Omaha, Nebr., to Art and Elaine Buller. He attended Benson High School where, through a mutual friend, he was set up on a blind date with Regan Hoover.  They were married July 1, 1972.

While he was working in Omaha as a carpenter, the couple was blessed with two children, Cody and Logan.

In late 1982, the family moved to the Powell area where Wes began a 25-year run as a do-it-all carpenter for numerous local contractors and those who sought him out for special projects at their homes or businesses. In his minimal spare time, Wes was an avid, and mighty, hunter of the wiley goose. He was also an avid NASCAR fan, who made yearly trips to Talladega, Ala., and Phoenix to take in races with family and friends. If Wes would have had the opportunity, he had dreamed of being a jack-man on a NASCAR pit crew.

Wes could be found most Friday nights, kicking back and hanging out at Kysars with his friends. He was a mentor to numerous area carpenters and was always there to help his friends with anything they needed to build or wanted to learn how to build.

Wes is survived by the true love of his life, Regan Buller of Powell; his son and daughter-in-law, Cody and Andrea Buller of Phoenix; his daughter, Logan Buller of Omaha; his older brother and sister, Russell Buller and Sharon Noah, both of Omaha; and a vast number of friends who Wes considered a part of his family.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

A celebration of his life will be held at The Commons at Pond Park Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 11 a.m. Arrangements are being handled by Thompson Funeral Home.
