Obituary of Wesley Eugene Kerstens Jr.

Wesley Eugene Kerstens Jr., age 63, of Pearl River, Louisiana, passed away on July 3, 2022. He was born on September 27, 1958, to Mary and Wesley Kerstens.

Through life experiences, self-teaching, and persistent determination, Wesley achieved multiple degrees throughout his life. A man of many talents, including project management and being a masterful mechanic, Wesley's most cherished ones in his life were first and foremost his loving parents and his brother, Jimmy.

Life's downtimes were spent hunting, fishing, going on sunset walks on the beach, camping, car and go-cart racing, and any spontaneous other adventure considered. Wesley was always there to lend a helping hand and was a devoted friend and caregiver.

He is remembered lovingly by Tana and survived by his aunt, Mary B. Parnell; cousins, Tony, Stephen, and Mary Hoover and Suzanne and Henry Parnell; and friends by fate, Lana and Terry Crawford, Dorothy Guidry, Shannon Twomey, and Connie and John Gilmore.  He is also remembered by countless coworkers in the industry, his "pool family" - The Instagators, multiple neighbors, friends, and relatives. He was preceded in death by his loving parents, Mary and Wesley Sr., and his brother, Jimmy. Wesley will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
