    Brother Wesley H. Weysham, Jr.

    Suncoast Local 2546

    Sarasota County Fire Department 

    Brothers and Sisters,
    We are sorry to announce the untimely passing of brother Wesley Weysham. Brother Wes was a member of Sarasota County Fire Department as Firefighter Paramedic from 06-04-07 until he retired 06-06-17. He was a former member of Sarasota's station #22-A crew. Brother Wes was a patriot who proudly served in the US Navy from 1977-82. He also served as a member of the Sarasota K-9 Search and Rescue. He was a loving son, husband, father and grandfather.
    Brother Wes came across an MVA on I-75 in Hillsborough County and stopped in the early morning hours this past Sunday (Feb 24, 2019) to render aid to the injured. While heroically rendering aid to a stranger, brother Wes became a victim himself of a secondary crash at the scene that tragically took his life.
    A GoFundMe account has been set up under the Suncoast Professional Firefighters and Paramedics Charitable Organization to aid the family with expenses.  That link is:
